Northeastern Neighbors
New e-newsletter for neighbors and friends of NEIU
As neighbors, we share many things in common. Mostly, we hold a deep affection for our very unique part of Chicago. This communication is designed to update those who live and work in the area with news and developments from the University. A special thanks goes to those neighbors who helped brainstorm ways to enhance the dialogue and communication between NEIU and the community. More information will housed at our companion website here.
Residence hall plan updated; construction to begin
on diversity center expansion
The University announced on Monday during a meeting of the Northeastern Neighborhood Network that it has revised its construction schedule to build its first residence hall on the current 67 acres of campus before it builds its second residence hall on the 3400 block of Bryn Mawr, which it is still working to acquire. Separately, construction will soon begin on the expansion of the Pedroso Center for Diversity and Intercultural Affairs. Exterior work will be completed by May, at which time interior work will commence. The project is scheduled to be complete by August.
