Note: The University Honors Program offers many opportunities to engage in exciting programming. Per University Honors guidelines, as the recipient of this award, it is expected that you will demonstrate a spirit of community to NIU through participation in at least eight activities sponsored by University Honors—such as Recruiting and Open Houses, Birthday Boxes, Hot Food/Hot Topics or The Luminary—over the course of the year. Attendance at events or the organization's meetings, by itself, is not sufficient, rather we ask that you take a leadership role and submit a report to us at the end of the academic year.
