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,  https://www.facebook.com/niualumni.

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.
