Happy Birthday, Mission!

December 11th, 2013

Mission in SnowMission, the new mascot of Northern Illinois University, is celebrating his second birthday today!

Wish him a happy birthday at our Facebook page,

NIU donors and alumni John and Cassandra McKearn are sponsoring the Siberian husky, who is following in the footsteps of Diesel, NIU’s retiring husky.

The blue-eyed purebred, who lives in Marengo, is in training so that he has good manners and can perform a few tricks at NIU events.
