NEIU GOES FOR A SLAM DUNK AT HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL GAMES
Last month, NEIU was a featured sponsor of WCIU-TV's Game of the Week broadcasts of local high school basketball games. Representatives from Northeastern attended five Chicago area high school basketball games to meet with prospective students, their parents and NEIU alumni.
In addition to having University representatives to provide admissions and financial aid information, Northeastern offered onsite admissions at two of the five basketball games. During halftime of these two games, Claudia Mercado, director, admissions, provided information about NEIU in an interview, which was broadcast on television and can be viewed online.

Additionally, NEIU was well advertised at the events. Banners were hung at the site of each game, and an NEIU commercial was broadcast on television. Click here to view the commercial.
