After Northern Illinois University
- Very Good721
As a freshman attending Northern Illinois University is very different for me, because I am not very social. However, with the friends that I do have we go out on the weekends and turn up, with very nice and open people. Besides the party scene, my professors are nice and they understand that this a new scene to most of us and they make slight adjustments for us.

NIU is full of experiences, their resources could be better though. I enjoy the food and student life. the campus is diverse but there is always room for more improvement. NIU has alot of fun and great events. i wish NIU was Dog friendly.
