Wildcat Wire October 16, 2013

Wildcat Wire iconWelcome to this year’s first edition of the Wildcat Wire. What is the Wildcat Wire you ask? It is a newsletter that is written only for those students who have applied, and who have been admitted to, Northern Michigan University. Our goal is to keep you in touch with campus and community events, news and information, important reminders and some fun stuff, too. We hope that including you in our campus community now gives you more reasons to join us on campus in the fall of 2014, your first semester as an NMU Wildcat.


That's Entertainment: Northern has welcomed its fair share of nationally known performers to campus in recent years - Counting Crows, Ludacris, Maya Angelou, Magic Johnson, Second City, 3OH!3, Bill Cosby, All American Rejects, Boys Like Girls, The Ready Set, Rodney Atkins, and the MythBusters, to name just a few. The Center for Student Enrichment is back at it again this year. Check out the website and scroll down to the News and Events section for the latest updates on campus entertainment. 


Have you been to visit NMU? On November 2, Northern will host the fall semester Wildcat Weekend program.  At Wildcat Weekend, groups of prospective Fall 2014 students have the opportunity to tour campus, eat in the Marketplace cafeteria and hear presentations from various academic departments. It is a great way for students and their families to get a feel for what NMU can offer and to see why other students are looking at NMU. Why not join us? Learn more and register online at Wildcat Weekend.


Can’t make Wildcat Weekend? Did you know that we run a Campus Visit Program every Monday through Friday nearly every week during the school year and into the summer?  During these personalized visits you can tour campus, meet with a professor and/or visit with admissions and financial aid staff. Schedule your visit today at Campus Visit Program.


Haunted Theatre: Late October means it is time for the annual Halloween Haunted Theater. The haunted house adventure guides visitors through a creepy and theatrically redressed Forest Roberts Theatre stage. If you're in the U.P., check it out. If you're not, mark your calendars for next Halloween when you're on campus next fall. Learn more about Forest Roberts Theatre and all its many activities here.


NMU Makes a Difference: NMU will host its annual Make a Difference Day on Saturday, October 26. Last year, more than 242 service projects were tackled by nearly 1,500 students from 100-plus student and community organizations from across Marquette County. Among the many projects, the students raked yards, washed windows, and prepared homes of the elderly and disabled in Marquette County in preparation for the upcoming winter. Next year this is definitely an event that you should consider participating in.


Talk to you later: That does it for this first issue of the Wildcat Wire. Please contact us at admiss@nmu.edu with questions or ideas for next month’s edition. Remember, you are receiving the Wildcat Wire because you are in a select group of students, those who have been admitted to Northern Michigan University!
