Fellow Huskies,

My name is James Forman and I am a senior marketing Major here at Northern Illinois University.   I am proud to be serving as the Director of Advertising for the NIU Student Association.

I am from Rockford, Illinois. I have a passion for helping others, and I am all about Huskie Pride!

I am a transfer student from Valparaiso University where I was involved in Collegiate DECA, Lambda Chi Alpha and Delta Sigma Pi.  Since arriving at NIU as a sophomore I have been very involved in organizations such as Delta Sigma Pi, Phi Sigma Kappa and my previous role in the Student Association, Director of Public Affairs.  My work with these constituencies and prior experience at Valparaiso has given me the necessary tools I need to make a difference here at NIU.   As the Director of Advertising I am responsible for selling out the advertising space on the Huskie Bus Line as well as promotion of Student Association events on and around campus.  My main goal is to plan on continuing to provide local businesses with the opportunity to promote themselves on the Huskie Bus Line.  Also, I will reach out to other businesses that have not previously advertised with the Student Association before in order benefit a wide variety of the DeKalb area.  I would also like to see more student organizations advertise with us in order to increase overall involvement by students on campus.

I look forward to making this year a great one for the student body.
