Education in motion

Learning is action at NIU. Sure, you'll have classes, lectures and lab work to lay a foundation for you, but you'll also have opportunities to DO the work you're preparing for. Did you know you could conduct research with a Faculty advisor as a Freshman? Or perform and present consulting work for Fortune 500 companies? You can also win a grant to conduct your own research or artistry project, and these are just a few of the opportunities you'll have as a Huskie. Pair that with membership in one of nearly 300 clubs and organizations (including fraternities and  sororities), an elected office in the Student Association or volunteering your time through many community groups and programs, and you've set the stage for your own success. Ranging from pure fun, to professional development and everything in between, come learn about the experiences you'll never forget as a Huskie!
