Giving Tuesday

November 29 is #NEIUGivingTuesday 2016!

We were very excited last December to announce that Northeastern received $6,684 from 62 alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and students on #GivingTuesday. THANK YOU! 

This year's goal is to reach $10,000 on #NEIUGivingTuesday! No matter what you support throughout the University - a department, a college, a scholarship, a program - giving on #NEIUGivingTuesday shows your commitment to giving back to and making an impact on the educational journeys of our students.

To help us reach our goal and to spur others to give, alumnus A. Michael Drachler, Giving Tuesday photoM.D. (B.A. '68 Elementary Education - Biology) has pledged up to $5,000 for #NEIUGivingTuesday! Drachler's donations will benefit a scholarship in the Department of Biology, and any donation to the NEIU Foundation on #NEIUGivingTuesday - regardless of the designation - will count toward Drachler's challenge. 

Make a Gift

Show your NEIU pride and excitement by making a gift to Northeastern. Support from our alumni and friends makes a huge difference in the lives of our students and the community. Northeastern is a place of choice for its affordability, great programs and diverse environment. Every gift of every size counts towards the betterment of Northeastern's mission and vision.

ALUMNI NIGHT AT "Real Women Have Curves"

Alumni Night
Friday, Dec. 9, 2016
7:30 p.m.
Stage Center Theatre
5500 North St. Louis Ave., Chicago, Ill. 60625

The Stage Center Theatre in the Department of Communication, Media and Theatre invite the University community to the Fall 2016 productions of “Real Women Have Curves” by Josefina Lopez.

Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this is the outrageously funny story of five full-figured Mexican-American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. And while they work, hiding from the Immigration and Naturalization Service, they talk ... about their husbands and lovers, their children, their dreams for the future.

This play, a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience, celebrates real women's bodies, the power of women, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together. It's NEIU's first all-Latina cast in a main stage show.


PRICE: Tickets for alumni are available at $10. Students and employees can attend for free by presenting a current Northeastern ID card at the Information Center in the Student Union. Performance dates and times are as follows: Dec. 1, 2, 3, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m.; Dec. 10 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. On Dec. 2, there will be a special post-show discussion on "Latinas in Chicago Theatre" featuring three actresses who are part of UrbanTheater Company
