Edible Education Workshops for Fall 2016

August 22, 2016

Edible-Education-Top-CenterpieceBack by popular demand, the Office of Student Academic Success is pleased to announce our Edible Education workshop will be returning this year.

These informative academic workshops provide students with a free lunch while learning about various topics critical to academic success at NIU. Last year, we saw increased attendance and received positive feedback from students about the impact of these events and we used that information to help shape this year’s workshops. Topics for the fall of 2016 include:

Study Abroad:  Studying abroad is an exciting and engaging way to increase crucial intellectual and interpersonal skills. Learn how to gain a better understanding of the NIU Study Abroad Program and all of the opportunities it has to offer. This workshop will be held on Thursday, September 1, from 12:30-1:30 p.m., at Altgeld Hall in Room 125.
