Reading Room cases: "NIU Student Festivals: Traditions of Fun"
Campus has come together for friendly competition, light-hearted entertainment, carnivals, and social dances since its founding in 1899. These events are ways for NIU students to build community and unwind. Today Homecoming remains the one major campus event, but in the past May Fete and Winter Carnival were just as important.
These festivities serve as reminders that college is about more than academics and offers the chance for campus-wide fun.
Entry Way Exhibit case: "NIU's Memory Art Walk"
From our Art building’s studio spaces to visiting artist, there have been a broad range of artwork that has been created and displayed throughout campus. The mini display holds event postcards featuring artwork for exhibitions held at campus, memorabilia and student artwork.
The exhibit focuses on the art, culture, languages, fashion and food of Southeast Asia. It also features flyers for various study abroad opportunities through NIU which invite students to go on their own exploration of Southeast Asia. This exhibit was put together in conjunction with International Education Week.
