Staff members spent 10 months redesigning the website to better serve alumni. New features include a news section, easy navigation and better integration with social media channels.

Redesign also presented an opportunity to bring Northern Now online.

On the new Northern Now site, alumni and other visitors can view stories by issue, section or topic. Also included are class notes and all the other items alumni love about the quarterly magazine.

Joe Matty, associate vice president for University Advancement and executive director of the NIU Alumni Association, said “the new is easier to navigate, allowing our alumni to quickly discover the great events and programs that our organization offers.”

“The NIU Alumni Association has grown extensively during the past few years, and our alumni base is increasingly active online,” Matty said. “For those reasons, we felt it was necessary to design a site that reflects who we are as an organization and better meets the needs of our 225,000 alumni.”
