It’s finally here! A new semester bringing with it new faces and new beginnings. The class of 2012 has vacated the campus and moved on to the real world. Nick Lo Vetere, past author of this blog, has transitioned from an academic lifestyle to a professional one. In his place, I will be managing the student blog for the 2012-2013 year. He said before leaving that his successor would be “someone new, with new thoughts, new feelings and new experiences. It will be a fresh change of pace.” I can only hope to continue the excellence that Nick Lo Vetere demonstrated on this site. I hope that my stories and thoughts resonate with you, my audience, in some way shape or form and give you more insight into what it means to be a student at Northern Illinois University.
First, let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Nick Kochetta and I am a Senior Marketing major here at the NIU College of Business. My one mission since entering NIU was to leave it a better place than when I started. I’ve involved myself in organizations such as the Collegiate Sales Advisory Board, the Interactive Marketing Board, and the American Marketing Association to help realize this goal and I hope that through this blog I can inspire other young students to take ownership of their NIU experience as well. I want to see students get excited about attending NIU and I want people to see what the College has to offer. Furthermore, I want to maintain transparency in my posts so that you will not only see all the great opportunities and experiences, but you will also see the struggles that come with it.
I am a real student with real stories that I can’t wait to share! I look forward to a great year and hope that you’ll join me on this journey called my senior year.
Please feel free to drop a comment and chat. I’m more than open to continuing the conversation and I welcome all of your comments and criticisms. There’s much more to come so keep your eyes peeled! 2.0 out
