@ the Barb City Manor

       "The NIU History Club has been developing many programs that will diversify our assets as both a scholarly and social conscious club. During the spring semester of 2012, we, as an origination have been working on establishing a public history project called ‚ÄúReminisce with NIU History Club". We intend to interview the elderly residents at Barb City Manor to preserve their historically valuable experience on transcripts. We have had successes to the present developing this program. April 20th we sent a team to interview the residents of Barb CityManor." -Rob Alanzo
