This week, the Northern Illinois University Student Association set up a display in the second floor Gallery Lounge in the Holmes Student Center to gather the input of the university and community on ideas to improve the campus experience.

These concepts for the “re-envisioned” NIU campus include the mockups and renderings from consultants who pored over the input provided by campus leaders, students, facilities staff, City of DeKalb leaders and local stakeholders. While these ideas still require further consideration and exploration, they provide a starting point to re-envision NIU’s campus.

I invite you to stop by the Holmes Student Center between now and Friday, March 28, to provide feedback on these bold ideas. These concepts show how a comprehensive and coordinated set of actions could significantly improve the day-to-day lives of students, faculty, staff and visitors; constructively re-engage NIU with the City of DeKalb; and create a place of inspiration, community and positive memories for all.

The display is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Additionally, if you have not done so already, please register for one of the Bold Futures workshops for returning participants and new participants alike.

There is still room for more great ideas to promote student career success.
