  • "The first time I actually saw snow was when my plane landed in Marquette two years ago. I'm from Namibia, a sparsely populated country just North West of South-Africa. I grew up in a small town between the Namib desert and Atlantic ocean. At first, I was unsure how the drastic change in culture and geographical location would impact me, but I immediately fell in love with Marquette, the beautiful landscapes and the people. Everyone here has been extremely nice and truly made me feel like I'm a part of the community. I've made friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that I will carry with me forever. I will be a senior in the fall and I know I'll be leaving Marquette with a heavy heart. This will forever be my home away from home." - Caro Els, NMU student-athlete from Swakopmund, Namibia #ShareNMU #NMUWildcats

  • Meet Amber Huebner, a sports science student from Marquette, Michigan. We asked Amber about her Wildcat experience so far:

    Why did you decide to come to NMU?

    Amber: I am a born and raised Yooper. Lake Superior has been literally in my backyard my whole life. Not only is Marquette a beautiful area, but you cannot ask for a better community and better people to be surrounded by. I have always been a fan of NMU Athletics. When I had the opportunity to come and play basketball and be a part of this amazing program, it was a dream come true. What is better than playing in front of the community that helped me grow and become the person I am today?

    What’s an example of a cool, interesting or helpful thing that you have done as a part of your major?

    Amber: When I was in community health for a class, we did a 20-hour service learning project. I volunteered at the Jacobetti Home for Veterans. My service made an impact by providing intergenerational interaction, which is important to mix the younger generations with this community. There is so much knowledge veterans are able to teach us about gratitude for our environment and it was a great opportunity to learn about their stories. It is so important to thank and honor our military veterans for all the sacrifices they have made for our country.

  • First-year NMU School of Nursing student Tess Kostelec said she is leaning toward a career in an emergency room because the fast pace, high drama and need to think quickly appeal to her. She recently found herself in a situation that involved all of those elements when she saved a student from choking at Northern Lights Dining. Her capable response impressed a staff member and reassured Kostelec that she could indeed thrive professionally in an ER.

Marquette has seen me grow as a person, student and athlete and I feel fortunate to be able to represent my school through volleyball. Senior year is coming soon and I already have mixed feelings, but I know that I am leaving with the best experiences and memories." - Gabriela Martinez, NMU student-athlete from Vega Baja, Puerto Rico #ShareNMU #NMUWildcats

  • Northern Michigan University will launch a new online ticketing system for athletic, theater, music, and community events on Monday, April 1. The shift to University Tickets software will simplify and enhance the user experience through upgraded technology.

    It includes the following features:

    ✅ Electronic ticket delivery.

    ✅ A “handoff” feature for texting a ticket to someone else if the purchaser can't attend.

    ✅ Views from seating sections in each venue.

    ✅ Options to add events to personal calendars and share on social media.

    The hope is that this modernized system will reduce paper tickets and box office traffic, particularly for high-demand events such as hockey playoffs. Read more:

  • Northern Michigan University's Board of Trustees recently approved the renaming of the New Science Facility to Kathleen Shingler Weston Hall.

    In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, we take a closer look at Weston, one of NMU's first female graduates who went on to complete a medical degree. She became part of the team that developed the Salk polio vaccine and was honored by President Lyndon B. Johnson as one of the nation's “Outstanding Medical Women.”

    “I would never have done even half of the things I did if I hadn't gone to NMU,” said Weston in a 2005 alumni magazine interview. “I think back to how absolutely unprepared I was – such an innocent, green person. Going to Northern was a big opportunity for me.” Read more:

  • "Northern Michigan University’s new residential community, The Woods, consists of six buildings, all of which have four floors with a central corridor connecting them to a new culinary experience called “The Lights” dining facility. The Woods also features a large multipurpose and student gathering space, “The Lodge,” with an outdoor patio, fireplace, study spaces, and the opportunity to host university events.

    The new living-learning community certainly reflects the beauty and simplicity of the outdoors, and offers a variety of student suites, as well as individual apartments. In addition, there are a small number of private bedroom and bathroom units available for students with medical needs." - Neumann/Smith Architecture #ShareNMU

  • Meet Jordan Wallace, a clinical lab science student from Harbor Springs, Michigan. Jordan is a McNair Scholar and recently conducted a research project titled, “Evaluation of a Peptide Nucleic Acid Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification assay for the Rapid Detection of IDH1 R132H Mutation in Glioma using Nucleic Acid from Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded Tissue.”

    We asked Jordan about his research and Northern experience so far:

    Why did you choose to come to NMU?

    I have always had an interest in science. As a baker, microbiology was one of my interests. Furthermore, I tried living downstate in a much larger city than my hometown, and I found myself very unhappy. Therefore, I decided to visit the Clinical Laboratory Science department in beautiful Marquette. After a visit and tour with a professor in the department, I immediately imagined myself studying here. The size and quality of the laboratory spaces, welcoming character of the professors, and of course the nature of the surrounding area are very impressive.
