What advice do you have for future students? Get involved as much as possible!  Join clubs, sports, and study groups.  Go to sporting and campus events, and explore DeKalb.  Getting involved in as many things as your schedule can handle is a great way to meet people, make friends, and be introduced to many new activities and places.

What are 3 things you love about NIU? I love how beautiful the campus is in the fall when the leaves begin to turn.  There's nothing better than walking to class on a sunny, autumn day.

I love that there are people everywhere, all the time.  No matter where you're at on campus, there are friendly faces.  It's really easy to make friends here!

I love the small class sizes.  Being in a smaller class makes it easier to concentrate on what is happening in class and make friends with classmates.  Most of all, being in smaller classes gives you great opportunities to really get to know your professors.

What is your favorite place on campus? My favorite place on campus is the top floor of the Holmes Student Center, the Sky Room.  The windows give a beautiful view of all sides of campus.  It's a very peaceful place but also great for events, meetings, and dinners.
