Huskies of DeKalb: James Colvin

“Coming from a small town, college has been an interesting experience,” said James Colvin, sophomore computer science major. “I experienced a huge transition when I came to NIU. My views on the world have completely flipped. Living in a small town dominated by closed-minded people let me to believe racism, homophobia and other forms of bigotry were acceptable. Coming here changed all that. I realized how wrong it was to have such views. The diversity at NIU has put things into perspective and I’ve never been so aware of what’s going on.”
