What does it truly mean to be a member of the NIU community?
Members of NIU’s Foundations of Excellence Task Force are working to make sure everyone – freshmen classes included – can answer that question with intelligence and accuracy.
The next meeting of NIU Instructor Dirk Johnson’s creative non-fiction writing class will be held Feb. 2. That might not seem extraordinary, but this is: The course officially ended nearly two months ago.
“To my surprise, when the end of the semester came, they didn’t want the class to end,” Johnson adds. “So it didn’t.”
A series of public events Saturday,
Feb. 14, 2009, will commemorate the anniversary of last year’s tragic shooting on the NIU campus.
