NEIU students registered for the spring 2019 semester lined up in front of Alumni Hall to attend “Eagle Fest,” a celebration of early registration. Students were able to socialize with peers, play games, have their faces painted with a miniature sugar skull and eat pizza on Thursday, Nov. 1.

Freshman mentor and NEIU student Jessie Miller said the event is to help “change the culture, register early and build community at NEIU.”

President Gibson attended the fest to congratulate attendees on registering early and to announce the contest prize winner for the raffle contest. NEIU student Noel Alfaro won NEIU swag such as a string-bag, water bottle, hat and sweatshirt.
