ISA Overview - A Video
NIU's ISA Organization usually meets
once every other week, more often if there's a project going on (See
Projects). We usually have snacks and drinks before each meeting,
and it's a good place to meet with some of friends. We're open to
all majors. Most of the projects we completed in the past are
still there for demonstration, and, of course, we are always looing for
more project ideas!
