At NIU, you can build an educational experience that is all your own. With a wide variety of academic programs, 320 student organizations and many opportunities for hands-on learning, we offer you the resources that only a large university can.

Yet, much like a small college, you’ll receive personal attention and guidance from faculty, advisors and staff to help you along the way. We’re dedicated to helping you achieve success because your future is our focus.
