Starting on day one at NIU, students can grab numerous opportunities to enhance their college experience outside the classroom — socially, spiritually, and physically — all with health and safety in mind.

Student Life is committed to the entire development of students through intentional residential communities, diverse leadership opportunities, and a variety of students programming experiences. To fulfill this mission, Student Life provides opportunities which empower students to learn about themselves and others in an educational community while becoming responsible citizens.
We have a profound commitment to the diversity of our community and are focused on cultivating a respectful and inclusive environment where individuals with varying points of view and a broad range of life experiences can engage with and learn from one another. The opportunity to interact with diverse peers, both in and out of the classroom, leads to greater active thinking, intellectual engagement and motivation.
Extra curriculum activities play an essential role in enhancing the personality of the students. We have a panel that encourage and motivate students to participate in events. Participation builds self confidence amongst the students and makes them understand the value of a team work,coordination, cooperation and leadership qualities.
It is easy to make athletics and physical fitness a regular part of the undergraduate experience at NIU.
