Legacy Huskie proud of faith


By Jack Manning

Freshman undecided major James Mikucki is the third child in his family to attend NIU. He spoke to the Star Wednesday.

Student Spotlight is a once-weekly series that highlights campus individuals.

Northern Star: What makes you undecided about your major?

James Mikucki: I just don’t know what I want to do with my future right now.

NS: What is something you are proud of?

JM: My religion. I am a Catholic and have been since I was born, and I practice my faith often.

NS: What part of NIU have you liked the most since you have been here?

JM: That’s tough. I could say the faculty because they are always willing to help, or just the people in general who are willing to become your friends, or wanting to talk to you trying to get you involved around the campus.

NS: Are you involved in anything on campus?

JM: Yes, I am involved at the Newman Center and am also an associate member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. The fraternity is pretty interesting since I get to hang out with the guys, party sometimes and do community service.

NS: What is something few people know about you?

JM: I have two older siblings that graduated from NIU.

NS: Where is your favorite place to eat?

JM: Sometimes I used to go to Johnny’s Charhouse, and now since that’s closed probably The Junction.

NS: What advice would you give to fellow students?

JM: Always do your work, go to class and try to get involved around the campus.
