Beyond Graduation

Welcome to the alumni family!

We know great things are in store for you after graduation. You're joining a network of more than 244,000 NIU alumni all around the world. Whatever your future holds, we have resources to help you along the way and keep you close to your alma mater.

Stay Connected

The NIU Alumni Association is dedicated to keeping you in touch with the university. They offer fun and educational events that bring together alumni across the country. They also provide other ways to get involved, such as volunteer opportunities.

You can receive great benefits and discounts when you become a member of the Alumni Association. One of the benefits of membership is an NIU alumni email address. Since your Z-ID is removed when you graduate, this is a way to keep an NIU-branded email address.

Career Assistance

Turn to Career Services for help planning your career. They can help with resume reviews, practice interviews and more. You may have used Huskies Get Hired, the internship and job database, while you were a student. You can continue to use it after you graduate.
