Family Connections Publications


Through our e-newsletters and semester magazine, our hope is to help you stay connected to NIU. The information shared is designed to be timely, informative and helpful.

The Family Connection Magazine

The Family Connection magazine is published each semester. The information shared is more in depth than in our e-newsletters and is designed to give families insight into specific resources/topics at NIU.
