Princess presented with honorary degree
DeKALB — Altgeld Hall is often referred to as Northern Illinois University’s “castle,” but it’s not every day a real princess sets foot inside.
On Wednesday, Sept. 18, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand received an honorary doctorate of humane letters from the university in a special ceremony at Altgeld.
The princess was presented with the degree because of her humanitarian work in Thailand and her reputation as a scholar. In Thailand, she is often known as the “princess of technology” for her interest in helping people through science.
