What advice do you have for future students? While you are at NIU, make sure you live, laugh, love, and learn.  And never forget what you came here to do: graduate.

What are 3 things you love about NIU? I love that NIU offers a quality education for a great price, a diverse student population, and an environment that allows for individual growth.

What is your favorite place on campus? My favorite spot is the MLK Commons.  I love that it represents diversity and unity and that students have a beautiful place outside, right in the center of campus, where they can come together to study, lay in the grass, eat, and practice free speech.
