NIU wants to hear your Victor E. story

May 24, 2011

Victor E. HuskieNIU’s Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management has a new marketing campaign and message for students: Students can’t help becoming attached to Victor E. Huskie and all the activities he can offer them. 

The campaign’s message is about getting involved in campus life.

For both current and prospective students, it’s important to remember the extracurricular offerings and social aspects of NIU’s DeKalb campus. While students are here to learn, it’s important they become involved in other ways to maximize their NIU experience.

Brian O. Hemphill, vice president for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, spoke about the significance of students becoming engaged in their campus and surrounding community: “We know from student development research that students who engage both in and out of the classroom have significantly higher academic performance and are more satisfied with their overall college experience.”

The Victor E. Huskie video series debuted in March during Admitted Student Day, with the anticipatory submission and release of student-created videos to be selected and aired during the fall 2011 semester. Students whose videos are accepted each will receive $1,000 scholarships.

More information about the campaign, video submission criteria, and scholarship information can be found on the Victor E. & Me website.
