The most frustrating thing about my school is the limited parking. It is hard to get to class on time when there are never any spots.

The most frustrating thing about my school is the sepertion between races.

I would have to say that I was most frustrated with the changes I went through regarding my financial aid situation. Between my freshman and junior year, I had to go through a lot of confusing paperwork and changes that often took my focus away from schoolwork because I was afraid that I would have to leave school due to payment issues. However, I was eventually able to ask the necessary questions and get my finances in order.


When I came to Northern Illinois University, I saw all the different activities, clubs, programs, and events to get involved in. I wanted to do them all!

I love being involved with my school because it gives me a purpose and a responsibility for something that matters. It also gives me the opportunity to utilize my abilities in the best way possible! I love NIU!
