Prospective transfer students enjoy NIU-style ‘overnight experience’

April 3, 2014

Transfer Overnight ExperienceProspective transfer students were invited to campus March 20 and 21 to partake in the “Transfer Overnight Experience.” Bus transportation was available for students who wanted to ride to campus.

Activities included:

  • Meeting current NIU students
  • Free tickets to the Billy Currington concert at the Convocation Center
  • Overnight stay in Stevenson A Tower
  • Breakfast and dinner experience in Neptune and New Hall
  • Participation in the Transfer Open House
  • Mock classroom experience
  • Admission presentation
  • Campus tours
  • Late night snack social

Transfer Overnight ExperienceTwenty-five prospective students from various community colleges participated, calling it a meaningful and exciting event. Twenty-two current NIU students volunteered to meet with the prospective students and participate in the event activities together.

“This was an exciting event and opportunity for prospective transfer students to come explore what NIU has to offer and see what it’s like to be a student at NIU,” said NIU Transfer Center Coordinator Andrew Hlubek.

“It was inspiring to see the positive interaction between both current NIU students and prospective transfer students. I believe they both walked away from the event having learned a lot about NIU.”

Interested in transferring to NIU? Visit campus any Friday this semester for “TGIF: Transfers Get Information Fridays” or come to the Friday, April 18, Spring Open House.
