NIU Support Links

Commenters have pointed me to some new links and I’ve been looking them over.

You might check out NIU Memorial fundraising tee shirts (though at the moment the effort is suspended due to a licensing issue) plus Cafe Press offerings uniting Virginia Tech and NIU with proceeds being split between both schools.

Someone’s started a new local blog, a collaborative effort of students called NIU Needs Answers. I was enthralled by Sam Brunell’s account of her brush with mortality in “Why did I have to go to class that day?” which juxtaposes the mundane with the surreal especially as concerns the speed-of-time differential.

The writers including Brunell are seeking the road to normalcy this week. As long as they care to share that journey I’ll be reading.
