About Us

          The NIU History Club is for NIU students who are majoring/minoring in history, or just have an interest in history.  The club is designed to be a resource for History majors/minors to help them through their school career. Our goal is to collect the best information and advice about classes and professors, as well as bring in guest speakers who can answer any question about undergrad school, grad school, careers, internships, etc. We also host trivia nights, movie nights, and field trips to local museums and historical sites.

Though having a history club at NIU isn't a new concept, we are bringing it back to life and re-inventing it to attract and assist more history students.

Our First meetings of the semester will be September 16th & 18th (Tuesday and Thursday) at 6pm in DuSable 212.

It is not necessary to attend both meetings. They will be informational meetings, and we will be asking our members how they want us to plan the rest of the year. 

After these meetings, the club will meet every Thursday night at 6pm, in DuSable 212.
