We offer programs to make your first and second year at NIU successful. Huskies Get Connected (HGC) will connect you with a knowledgeable peer to help you find organizations, service and research opportunities that interest you. You're also invited to attend our First- and Second-Year Success Series (FSYSS). You'll meet new friends and gain valuable skills through a series of workshops.
