My name is Malcolm Neely and I am very eager to serve as the Director of Athletics and Recreation for the NIU Student Association. I am double Huskie, I recently graduated in May with my degree in Marketing, now I am a Graduate student pursuing my Masters in Sports Management.

During my time here at NIU, I have been active in student leadership roles across the campus. I served as a Community Advisor for 3 years in Stevenson Towers. I also held the position of Director of Marketing for 3 years for Black Male Initiative, where I developed strategies to market our events such as our annual Apollo show in which we had over 1,000 attendees.

As the Director of Athletics and Recreation, I plan to better the overall Game-Day experience for our students at NIU Athletic events. Along with, expanding student involvement in sport clubs, recreation, intramurals and other resources our Campus Recreation has to offer.
