In the summer issue of Northern Now, you’ll meet Dan McCullough, an alumnus who has attended 57 straight Huskie homecomings.
Since his freshman year, the 75-year-old bachelor hasn’t let anything get in his way to attend homecoming. Traveling about 70 miles from his hometown of Durand, he has seen games in the rain and snow and even attended one game on crutches because of a car accident. Read more about the king of homecoming.
You can also read about the NIU Alumni Association’s 2014 alumni award recipients and watch a video about the awards program. Meet the 2014 alumni award winners and find out why NIU is extraordinary.
And you’ll learn about mentoring programs taking place on campus to prepare students for the job market. The expansion of mentoring and internship opportunities is an integral part of President Doug Baker’s efforts to ensure student career success. Pilot mentoring programs were initiated this year as part of that plan. Learn more about mentoring programs.
