I absolutely loved the Murder Mystery Dinner yesterday in the Homes Student Center! It was such a fun time, and the people who worked it really put their hearts into it. I enjoyed every waking moment of it, even though my team was not able to solve the mystery. Thank you for hosting this event, and I look forward to more events like it in the future!

This class was great! Our presenter was well informed and made it relatable and fun. Everyone should take this class to get in touch with yourself. We all have negative feelings, we are Human, Learn to manage it!

What an amazing event! I am in awe of the accomplishments and aspirations of the women on our campus - both those who are teaching and those who are pursuing degrees. NIU women are incredible - and it was an honor to witness so many of them being recognized.

Really enjoyed this Diversity Dialogue! The evening was thought-provoking and no doubt has already launched more open conversations on campus about race, privilege, and marginalization throughout U.S. history and now. Thank you Dr. Flynn - I look forward to reading your book when it arrives! Thank you as well to ADEI for coordinating and hosting these valuable Diversity Dialogues.

I thought the seminar was very informative. Learned a lot and feel more comfortable in knowing what I have to do to retire. I think everyone who is thinking of retiring should take this seminar. Very well presented. The facilitator knew our answers to our questions. She was very professional. Thanks again
