I had a great time at the lecture. It's not every day that an esteemed "Beowulf" and Tolkien scholar comes to NIU. My only complaint is that the lecture was held in an isolated corner of the student center that was difficult to find.

As always, we had a very informative meeting! We updated the Dependent Scholarship info page and application; those will be published soon. We met with President Baker, who shared a PP that really breaks down the budget issue for us; I encourage you all to take some time to review the document once it's published on our homepage. Hope to see some of you at our next meeting - Th Apr 2, 9am, Sky Room

Two of us had a very pleasant lunch. Creative menu. Well executed. I was pleased to be able to get the recipe for the asparagus bisque. The reservation web site needs to be changed. We made a last minute decision to come over for lunch and I had a terrible time trying to get connected to find out if we could be accommodated. The phone number listed for "direct contact" with the restaurant is the general NIU information number, and they had to try two times to find a number that would ring in at Ellington's.

I have the soup, salmon, and chocolate torte. Everything was very good! I loved the presentation of the room and the friendliness of the students. The presentation of the food was very professional. I will definitely attend in the future.

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!

It was a great show! There are many talents on campus that we were able to watch. I hope The Adela de la Torre Honor Society is able to do this show again.
