Northern Illinois University (NIU) a public research university was founded in 1895 as Northern Illinois State Normal School, located in DeKalb, IL. Originally, it was founded as part of an expansion of the state’s system for producing college educated teachers. DeKalb offers the students a small town atmosphere, with homegrown shops and restaurants in a mostly rural area, but also provides new retailers and restaurants. Major employers in DeKalb are Kishwalkee Health System, Target, 3M, Nestle, Northern Illinois University and Best Buy.
The NIU School of Theater and Dance has a connection with the Moscow Art theater School where graduate students train in Moscow for one month and undergraduates participate in a semester long program.
Some noted alumni include John Landgraf, Executive Vice President of Global Nutrition; Jill M. Krueger, President and CEO of Health Resources Alliance, Inc.; Ned Colletti, General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers; and Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The NIU Huskies are members of the NCAA Division I and Mid-America Conference. A little known fact is that before the mid 1990’s, the Huskies were ranked as high as 10th in the 2003 AP College Football poll after victories against BCS opponents Maryland, #Alabama and Iowa State.
