Hello my name Alexander Fitch, I am a senior Electrical Engineering major with a minor in Applied Mathematics here at Northern Illinois University. I am from the southwest suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Hinsdale Central High School. This year I will serve as the Director of Athletics and Recreation for the 2014-2015 academic year.

In my time at Northern, I have been involved with a wide variety of organizations which include, Sigma Alpha Mu, Red Riot, and the former NIU Track and field club. As a member of Sigma Alpha Mu I began to grow as a leader and an overall student. I have been on the Executive Board for almost three years; including being President for the past year and a half.

Within Red Riot, I served as the Vice President of Marketing, gaining a great amount of experience working with Athletics to get students involved. I had the chance to build great relationships within the Athletics department. Additionally, as a co-founder of the NIU Track and Field Club, I had the opportunity to work with many of the great staff in Recreation Services.

As the Director of Athletics and Recreation, I plan on building on my past experiences and relationships with Athletics and Recreation to effectively market to the needs of the average student. It is my goal to increase the interaction between student athletes and the student body, as well as to give exposure to the great programs NIU provides. I truly believe this is the best campus in the nation and want to share my passion for NIU and athletics to all of our students.
