Volunteers Needed for STEMfest 2019
STEMfest is a free community event that packs NIU’s Convocation Center with hands-on interactive exhibits, activities, and competitions to help k-12 students, their families, and the community, to explore science, technology, engineering, and math. People of all ages have fun while learning more about STEM careers and innovations. We count on NIU student volunteers to provide a positive experience for everyone who participates in STEMfest.
We need students to help with everything from greeting visitors, to event set-up and tear-down, to working at one of our interactive displays, during a shift of the students choosing. We rely on students to make this a fun and successful day for the community.
Students can sign up to volunteer online before Friday, Oct. 18, 2019.

Class project seeking survey participants on the effectiveness of NIU marketing communications
A class research project for a Marketing Research and Analysis course (MKTG 603) is conducting an anonymous online survey to examine how likely students are to engage in NIU marketing communication via email, print and social media.
Information gathered from this data will be used to understand how to statistically analyze and gain consumer insights from research. The voluntary survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Only students over the age of 18 can participate.
