About The Center

The Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center is an ideal venue for hosting alumni gatherings, volunteer and donor events, student activities, faculty forums, dignitary receptions, as well as community groups and meetings. The center also is available to the extended Northern family for private occasions—weddings, family reunions, and other milestone events.

Art can breathe life into a place like few other things can. The creative energies of the artists literally fill a space with the soaring of human endeavor.

This magnificent new facility was designed to be many things to many people, not the least of which is an enticing and engaging destination to which visitors to NIU and its surrounding communities will return again and again.


Guests and event attendees looking for nearby hotels are encouraged to book their rooms at the Holmes Student Center on campus. The student center offers fantastic rooms just a short walk from the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center.
