About the Blogger

My name is Luis Lopez and I am a Sophomore Electrical and Computer Engineering student at Northern Illinois University. I was born in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico, grew up in Cuparataro, Michoacan and have lived in Cary, Illinois for the past 4 years. I am very excited to be spending my second year here at NIU as an Northern Lights Ambassador and as a University Honors Fellow. I am very involved on campus and I enjoy being part of the NIU community. Besides being an NLA and an Honors Fellow, I am also the Social Chair of Honor Student Association, the Events Coordinator for Adela de la Torre Honor Society, and an active member and advocate of DREAM Action NIU. My goal as an NLA is to represent and promote NIU and my college and show everyone how awesome we are! I love NIU and I hope to be able to show others how great this institution really is. I hope to also become a resource for current and future students so that all the information I have learned so far can be shared and other students can benefit from it. I would love to help new and current students get involved and by doing so, I know I will be helping them have a much better college experience.
