Northern Iowa Student Government

Updated look for the website

By: Student on Mon, 01/11/2010 - 13:51

Welcome to the updated NISG website. You should notice some immediate changes, including the website's overall look. 

The Northern Iowa Student Government is committed to supporting students. To help accomplish this mission, NISG began production of its updated site in Summer 2009. The new site went live on Jan. 11. 

The primary goal of the redesign was to enhance the average user's experience by making the site easier to navigate and read. 

Your favorite NISG services are still intact. Visit the Transportation section under Student Resources to learn more about the Panther Shuttle and Weekend SafeRide. If you need a new roommate or a place to live, check out the Housing List. More changes are slated to take place over the Spring semester, including the creation of a Diversity tab which will house information and links related to diversity at UNI. 

Questions or concerns about the redesign can be directed at Director of Public Relations Megan Parrott at mparrott@uni.edu.

The purpose of NISG, and its constitution, is to unify our student community by establishing this student government. The Northern Iowa Student Government is committed to improving the administration of student affairs, encouraging the greatest level of communication and cooperation, ensuring the protection of student rights, and providing excellence in education.
