Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2003

I thought this was a great University. It was the perfect size to give the university feel it small enough to be comfortable. I feel like I had a good education at this college. there are many activities to do as well.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I liked my college experience for the most part. It was close enough to home. However, a lot of people would go home for the weekends therefore labeling the school as a "suitcase" college. The campus was nice and the so was the town. There is a downtown DeKalb right off of campus with some nice restaurants and town bars.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009

I could not have made a better college choice! Northern Illinois University (NIU) was a wonderful university to attend! The faculty and students were a pleasure to work with. The variety of classes and cultures on campus was rewarding. The surrounding community was very supportive of our athletic teams, and activities going on. Our motto "Forward, Together Forward" was founded after a horrific tragedy on campus, and the experience truly brought us closer together. I am so proud to be an NIU alumni! Go Huskies!

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2005

The classes were a mixed bag but mostly good, or at least as good as the effort you put into them. The career services department is worse than useless, unless you're from one of the four or five majors they care about. If you are studying engineering, business, nursing, or teaching, you'll be fine. Otherwise you will get no help at all.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

I enjoyed it. It's not hard. People that fail out is due to them not trying generally. Learn basic study habits. If you don't think you can do it, don't do it. You will end up owing a lot of money and, in most cases, end up in a worse position than you would have been had you not tried.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

NIU has a pretty campus, but a lot of students don't seem to get too involved in school activities or clubs. Most students leave on weekends which deteriorates the college atmosphere some want when they leave home.

Degree: Social Work, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

NIU has something for everyone! Whether you are an athlete, bookworm, art enthusiast, or anything else, NIU has you covered! Not to mention, the diversity and culture on campus is phenomenal! NIU caters to a wide variety of interests and we pride ourselves on our ability to create successful and competent students to enter the workforce right out of college. NIU really is the first step into the right direction, so come make your mark in Huskie Country!
