As an alumnus of Northern Illinois University, you are instilled with a sense of Huskie Pride that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

You can now carry that Huskie Pride literally, as the NIU Alumni Association and Balfour have announced a partnership to sell and distribute various leather goods branded with the NIUAA Huskie logo.

These items range from garment bags to travel organizers, and the entire catalog of NIUAA products is available immediately for sale and can be found here.

Balfour is traditionally known for its manufacturing, sales and marketing of class rings, yearbooks, letter jackets and graduation regalia for outgoing graduates, but the company had been looking to expand.

“The opportunity to partner with Balfour was too good to pass up,” Bustinza said.  “Balfour’s reputation is impeccable, and we jumped at the chance to become their first alumni partner and provide our alumni the chance to display their Huskie Pride on a daily basis.”

"Balfour is excited to partner with the Northern Illinois University to offer this exclusive line of Huskie products," Senior Vice President Scott Blevins said. "Our company was founded on a college campus, and we continue investing in ways to amplify the achievements of college students and alumni alike.

"These high quality products help Huskies proudly celebrate their lifelong association with NIU through lifestyle, travel and professional leather goods."
