CHANCE Program celebrates 45 years

October 7th, 2013

The NIU community recently celebrated the 45th anniversary of the CHANCE Program. An awards ceremony was held on Friday, October 4, in the Regency Room in the Holmes Student Center to celebrate the anniversary.

CHANCE is an acronym for counseling, help, and assistance necessary for a college education. The program grew from 56 students, including nine transfers and four GED students, in January 1969 to admitting about 500 students each year.
