NIU Rockford Area Huskies' Send-Off 

Sunday, July 16

Rockford Send Off


Help us send our Huskies off to another exciting year at NIU!

The NIU Rockford Alumni Club and the NIU Alumni Association would like to invite alumni and students to a special send-off for our new and returning Huskies before the fall semester begins in DeKalb.

This event will feature local alumna Carla Redd, ’93. Redd was hired as Rockford's first Black and first female police chief in August of 2021.

Come out and enjoy a picnic-style lunch, as well as fun and networking with NIU alumni and students from the Rockford area. You'll also have the opportunity to share your Huskie experience with our incoming students and tell them how NIU made an impact on your life. 

This free event will take place Sunday, July 16, at noon on the Riverview Terrace at the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford. This includes complimentary access to the conservatory from 2-3 p.m. 

This event will be sponsored by the NIU Rockford Alumni Club and the NIU Alumni Association.

Current and incoming students, and their families, can register here. Alumni, and their guests, will register by clicking the button below.
