Greeting Card Project a Success
Many Northern alumni and friends are receiving holiday greetings in the mail that feature a familiar green-and-gold color scheme on the front and university logo on the back.
The NMU chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) initiated a venture to produce, promote and sell greeting cards that showcase the creativity of art and design students.
Name for Student-Managed Fund Selected
The College of Business unveiled the name of its newly established, student-managed investment fund at a ceremony last week. Finance students were challenged to come up with ideas and they submitted more than 50 different suggestions. Todd Treadeau of Marquette was selected the winner for his entry: The Superior Fund. "The name reflects our location and our expectation for how the fund will perform," said Daniel Konku (Business), who coordinated the competition.
The Superior Fund started with an initial sum of $200,000 contributed by the university, friends and alumni. Students in the investment course are already using it as a learning tool. A portion of the annual return on investments will be available to the college to support student activities and programs. The fund is overseen by a team of advisers drawn from both the university and financial services communities.
NMU faculty awards recognizing teaching excellence, professional development activities and effective integration of computer technology were presented at the Celebration of Scholarship Ceremony Dec. 7. Full Story
