Student-Faculty Links Program

Looking for a one-to-one relationship like you had with a teacher or counselor in high school?

If so, Student-Faculty Links is designed for you. You'll meet with a faculty or staff mentor in an informal setting outside the classroom to:

  • Learn the ropes of university life and how to get involved on campus
  • Find answers to your academic and personal questions
  • Locate and use university and community resources available to you
  • Set goals and learn how to succeed at NIU.
