I brought my boyfriend to check out NIU and although I wish we could have seen more, we had a lot of fun in the Huskies Den and met some new people. It was very nice of the university to supply free pizza and refreshments as well.

My dad and I learned some new things about financial aid and how the lottery works when it comes to applying for a room. I also met my possible future roommate while I was there, so it was very exciting.

I thoroughly enjoyed this event! If at all possible may I have the names of the young woman and the young man who led this awesome discussion? I need their information for my homework. Thank you so much in advance!
