Embrace your niche.
Connect with others who share your passions.
At Northeastern Illinois University, we provide a space for students of all backgrounds to embrace their passions. On our diverse campus, you’ll find your sense of belonging as you connect with others who share your interests through an array of events, activities, and organizations.
We value community
Our academic centers allow you to nurture your enthusiasm for a particular subject area with others who wish to do the same. This is true in the Student Center for Science Engagement where students gather to talk and collaborate on all areas of science, and in the Business Innovation & Growth Center, which helps students develop business plans and even offers a mini course on how to launch your own business.
An arts-centered campus
Those who love the arts will find themselves at home at NEIU’s Stage Center Theatre, where productions take place year round and films are screened on a regular basis. Students are invited to join the Community Dance and Community Music programs or submit a piece in the playwriting contest that takes place annually. Plus, the Fine Arts Center Gallery serves to uplift local artists, and talks and workshops with those artists provide a space for collaboration.
We get things moving
For those who love fitness, NEIU’s endless Campus Recreation options offer an encouraging outlet. You can join an existing intramural sports team, create your own sports club, and participate in group fitness classes such as Mind and Body Yoga. Additionally, our Adventure Program gives you the opportunity to go on outdoor trips and participate in challenge courses—and join your friends on the indoor climbing and bouldering wall and high ropes course.
