Your Northern Story

"I believe my life has changed as a result of the experiences at NMU because it helped me to learn communications skills to interact with people of all ages; gave me that 'can do' attitude of confidence aided by a quality education that many employers are seeing in employees."

"I feel like I am a very confident person due to my experiences at NMU. I was never a risk-taker before Northern, I always stayed within the status quo. NMU gave me the push I needed."


These are the words of Northern alumni when they share their Northern Story.
