The prospect of entering high school is a formidable one as eighth graders anticipate a new journey that awaits within the Niles North walls. To reduce the anxiety associated with freshmen classes and daily routines, a wide variety of extracurricular activities are offered to the school’s newest students. On Jan. 31 at 6:00 p.m., the annual Niles North Curriculum and Activity Night will be held in order to allow incoming freshmen to explore over 90 of the possible clubs and organizations that pique their interest.

“The event will begin with presentations in the auditorium at 6:15pm.  Soon after, guests will have an opportunity to walk around the building and visit tables of all the Niles North co-curricular and extracurricular clubs, activities, sports and some elective classes,” Eleni Andritsakis, Student Activities, co-director said.

The night has paramount for helping freshmen feel more comfortable in the Niles North community. “Curriculum night is vital because it exposes incoming freshmen to all the options available to them before they can even call Niles North home,” said Inayah Lodhi, sophomore.

Current Niles North students participating in clubs are encouraged to table for their organization and recruit new members to join next year.

“I remember this night because it was the first time I was exposed to the reality of the countless possibilities that await me. Being a student now, I can see how my interests have changed since a couple years ago,” said Lodhi.

Don’t forget to represent your club/organization on Jan. 31 at 6:00 p.m., and make sure to introduce yourselves to the future Vikings!
