News and Information



How is NMU connected with the Seoul Institute of the Arts?  It all began about 20 years ago with a young man named Ji Hun Chang and his devoted and compassionate NMU professor, Dr. Chuck Ganzert.  Ji Hun received his B.A. in broadcasting at NMU, then went on to get his Master’s at Boston University and Ph.D. at HongIk University in broadcasting. 

Remembering the kind community of Marquette and the fine education at NMU, he sent one of his students, Young Jong Lee, to NMU to study under Dr. Ganzert.  Lee became the first international student selected to deliver a student commencement speech at the 2012 May Commencement.  

It is the wish of Dr. H. Sook Wilkinson, NMU Board of Trustees member, that we can find ways to share our expertise and work together to learn more about SeoulArts.  Click HERE to learn more.

Below is a link to a WLUC TV story about one of the recording projects with Dr. Ganzert's Advanced Audio Production students.  The group was working with the Jeremy Kittel Band, a 2014 Grammy Nominee in the traditional category.  The band was amazing, and the recording turned out very well.  After editing and mixing, it will air as a music and interview show on WNMU FM during graduation weekend.
