Explore NMU

When transferring schools, there's so much you might want to discover about where you're moving to. Northern offers over 180 academic programs and excellent research and internship opportunities. And students are also heavily involved in student life, with over 300 student organizations and a huge volunteer rate. And when students aren't studying or adding to their resumes, they're exploring the community of Marquette and amazing environment around campus. Check out the links on the left-hand side to discover more about NMU.
