Get Ready for the Wildcat Weekend Information Fair!
One of the very first things you will do when you get to Wildcat Weekend is take a walk through our NMU Information Fair, so we want to give you a preview of which offices will be there and what types of services are provided to NMU students through each office. Representatives at each table will be eager to answer your questions!
Housing & Residence Life —This office coordinates all residence hall living at NMU. Bring your questions about our suite-style housing, housing assignments, roommate assignments, meal plans, room and board rates, and programming in our residence halls.
Center for Student Enrichment (CSE)—This office works with all NMU student organizations, volunteer opportunities, and leadership development programs. If you are looking to get involved at NMU, this is the office to see!
Dean of Students Office—Think of the Dean of Students Office as the student advocacy office on campus. If you're having a problem or need help with anything as an NMU student, DOS can help with finding the resources you need. Programs overseen by DOS include the student conduct program, First Year Programs, Multicultural Education Resource Center, and Disability Services.
First Year Experience (FYE)—Would you like to be able to register early for your first semester courses? Would you like to take a block of courses with other students in your major (or other undecided students if you don't have a major yet)?

MERC provides engaging multicultural programming for the entire NMU campus community.
Recreational Sports—If you hope to be involved in playing sports on NMU's campus and/or staying in shape, this is the office to see.

HPO also supports alcohol-free programming on campus.
Honors Program—The Honors Program at NMU provides academically qualified students the opportunity to challenge themselves by taking honors-level classes, engaging in many out-of-class learning experiences with other honors program students and faculty, undertaking a senior capstone project, and earning an "honors" designation on their college transcripts.

Reserve Officers Training Corps (Army ROTC)—Students interested in serving in the United States Army, National Guard, or Army Reserves as well as getting their NMU degree may be interested in NMU's ROTC program.
