The NIU Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Program serves as a comprehensive resource for graduates of the last 10 years, with information on university resources, social media, and events of special interest to young alumni. Recent young alumni events include a Homecoming tent and lawn games, a beer tasting and watch party at Goose Island in Chicago, and a lounge party at Pinstripes in Oak Brook.
The Alumni Association honors NIU’s newest graduates with its Outstanding Young Alumni Award, one of its annual Alumni Awards. Each year, an alumnus/alumna who has received an undergraduate degree from NIU within the past 10 years is named the recipient of the Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Read about Michael Cahill, the 2016 recipient.
