NIU spent Saturday, Feb. 14, in a day of reflection as the university community marked the one-year anniversary of the Cole Hall tragedy.
“One year after the worst day in our history, NIU remains determined to not let an act of violence define us,” President John Peters told a large crowd at a candlelight vigil.
Northern Illinois University will build a garden near Cole Hall, with a curved peaceful walkway and five illuminated sections of cardinal red granite, as a permanent memorial to victims of the Feb. 14, 2008, shootings on campus.
Five Northern Illinois University students with strong character, grand ambitions and intellectual curiosity are now recipients of the first-ever Forward, Together Forward scholarships: Deanna Bach, Jacqueline Do, Scott Hudek, Justin Kuryliw and Grace Weidner.
Established in 1974, the NIU College of Law is young by some standards, but it might feel like an old and established institution to its newly appointed dean.
When it comes to their future careers, it’s safe to say Amanda Stevens and Theresa Miller are a step ahead.
