With recommendations for social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, the NMU Alumni Association has picked an appropriate time to host its first Virtual Alumni Happy Hour. Based on the response to the inaugural event, scheduled from 5-7 p.m. Friday, March 20, other virtual alumni events and meetings may follow.
Many U.S. universities have shifted from face-to-face instruction to online platforms in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The conversion can be more challenging for labs and performance classes that don't lend themselves well to written material or slide presentation software. Some faculty members, including NMU Director of Dance Jill Grundstrom, are exploring innovative ways to engage students in a virtual environment.
