The group plans to meet three to four times per year to network, socialize, support the local collegiate chapter and provide programs of interest to Mortar Board alumni. All ideas and suggestions for the alumni group will be welcomed at the reception.
All current Mortar Board members and alumni, whether from NIU’s chapter or any other of the 228 chapters nationally, are invited to attend the event. Denise Rode, an NIU Mortar Board alumna and director of Orientaiton, will host the recpetion at her home, 2800 Country Club Lane in DeKalb. Collegiate chapter members will be on hand to share news about Mortar Board on campus.
