Add a special NIU touch to your next event with an appearance by Mission, the official mascot of NIU.
Mission II will be retiring due to food and environmental allergies.
On Friday, Jan. 27, Mission III was introduced during an appearance at the Holmes Student Center. Over the next several days, news outlets across the region shared the exciting news with their audiences.
Mission II was born on July 6, 2019, and is a purebred Siberian Husky from Southern Wisconsin. Formerly known as “Mini-Mish,” he began his mascot term in June 2021, taking over for the original Mission upon his retirement.
Everyone's favorite live mascot, Mission II, is now a bobblehead! Get yours today for $30.
At Northern Illinois University we strongly believe that our mission represents who we are—that’s why we have the tradition of proudly naming our live Huskie mascot Mission.
