NIU-Naperville signFor those with college in their future, Northern Illinois University will host an undergraduate admissions information session at the NIU Naperville Education and Conference Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25.

Kimberley Buster-Williams, director of admissions at NIU, says this is a tremendous opportunity for students considering enrolling in a quality, major comprehensive educational institution to have questions answered by NIU representatives.

“Even students and families who live a relatively short distance from the NIU campus have busy, busy schedules, and it’s hard to find the time to get to campus,” she says. “The Naperville information session provides prospective students with a great introduction to NIU and the world of opportunity that awaits them in terms of academic and social growth. It’s good service for NIU representatives to go to them.”

Northern Illinois University offers 63 undergraduate, 78 graduate and 20 Ph.D. programs in seven colleges. NIU’s academic experience is enriched by opportunities for research, internships and on-campus programs and activities that include Greek life and the University Honors Program.

Prospective students and their families will have the chance to learn more about the opportunities awaiting them at Northern Illinois University; discover the next steps to admission, financial aid, and scholarship awards; and receive information on NIU’s “Research Rookies” program, “Themed Learning Communities” and other engaged learning opportunities.
