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 it’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Each year, an alumnus/alumna who has received an undergraduate degree from NIU within the past 10 years is named the recipient of the award. Read about Larry English, the 2013 recipient. Nominate a young alum for 2014.
