At Monday's university forum, attendees received a budget and facilities update before learning about the priority projects identified within each of the five new administrative pillars. President Brock Tessman led off with an introduction and said a forum each semester is among the planned strategies to enhance transparency and communication on campus.
Patrick Myers of Lake Linden felt like he was missing out on the fulfilling college experience his friends were having at Northern Michigan University. After high school graduation, they enrolled at NMU and started telling him about the amazing campus environment and the incredible opportunities it offered. Myers was going to college elsewhere, but decided to transfer so he could also be part of Northern.
