Parking lot party celebrates end of semester

May 2, 2012

What was that tantalizing barbeque fragrance around MLK Commons Wednesday afternoon?

Approximately 200 students participated in an end-of-year parking lot party at the NIU Visitors lot during the midday hours on May 2.  NIU Military Student Services partnered with Off-Campus & Non-Traditional Student Services to put on the event.

The celebration was held to congratulate all veteran and military students in addition to non-traditional and commuting students on the completion of the semester and to provide special recognition to those graduating seniors and graduate students.

During the Spring semester, Military Student Services hosted Food Frenzy Wednesdays each week from 11:30a.m. to 1:30p.m. since February 1, providing free food and fun for MSS students.  Every other week, a guest speaker presented a different topic.
