Tuesday Tour Day – Northern Illinois University

Today, let’s take a tour of Northern Illinois University!

Located in one of the most dynamic regions of the country, Northern Illinois University is in DeKalb, Illinois, just 65 miles west of downtown Chicago and 45 minutes southeast of Rockford.

College is a time for fun as well as learning. And at NIU, there are lots of fun experiences that let you learn and lead too! NIU is a lively, engaged community with over 300 recognized clubs and organizations, intramural and club sports, Division I varsity athletics, creative and performing arts, Greek life, service opportunities, and so much more.

Also, a brand-new, 1,000-bed residence hall will open to all students in fall 2012. This new community will feature two residential buildings where students can live in groups of 12, offering individual living space and the opportunity to connect with other students.

Grants, loans, campus employment, and scholarship opportunities — we have them all!  With one of the most reasonable tuition rates in Illinois, an NIU education is within your reach. The Free Application for Federation Student Aid (FAFSA) is available beginning in January.

More than 3,000 campus jobs are available, as well as many paid internships for experience in your major.

NIU scholarships focus on academic merit, achievement, honors, talent, involvement, and financial need. Many NIU merit scholarships are offered automatically, based on the academic information submitted with your admission application. Apply early to NIU to be considered for these scholarships!
