When you book NIU’s extremely lovable, four-legged mascot Mission for an event, you’re bringing something special to the party. Mission is a friendly “people person,” and he’s happiest when he’s getting a scratch behind the ears or a word of encouragement. Having gone through extensive training, he works very well with adults and children, and he may even be able to dress to fit the theme of your event, as he has many fun accessories in his doghouse.

To inquire about Mission’s event availability, please go to myniu.com/mission, and click on “Book a Visit.”

The Mission Program is funded by the generosity of alumni John, ’75, and Cassandra McKearn, ‘75.
