Alexis is a Chicago native but has made DeKalb his new home. He is an NIU alumnus who received his Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Services with an emphasis in Occupational Therapy. His passion for helping students navigate through the admissions process began through his role as student worker in the admissions office. >
Alexis is one of our bilingual counselors in the office. “Being able to speak Spanish and share the culture of Spanish speaking students allows me to build a strong connection with them. Speaking to the parents of incoming students in their native language gives them an opportunity to assist in their student’s transition into NIU.
