The Superior Edge is a student development program at NMU that provides students with the opportunity to combine in- and out-of-the-classroom experiences in a way that will provide them with an edge after they graduate.  Participants in this program document hours of relevant activities and experiences and write reflective papers that illustrate what they have experienced and what they have learned.

The Superior Edge Logging Competition is a friendly contest between each house of every residence hall and aparmtent complex on NMU's campus.  This logging encourages every participant to "earn" more hours without sacrificing the quality of their experience.  Once you're a member of the Superior Edge Program, your hours are tracked automatically and reported to Housing and Residence Life by the Center for Student Enrichment.  Your hours are then added to others in your house and the summary is posted below.  Thsi summary is updated about every week during the fall semester.

Contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at (906) 227-2620 or housing@nmu.edu if you have questions about the logging competition.  Contact the Superior Edge Program at (906) 227-2439 or at cse@nmu.edu if you have questions about the Superior Edge Program.

Superior Edge is a great opportunity for students to get involved in both the NMU and Marquette community, and the program is open to everyone! Here is what some of the recent Superior Edge graduates have said about their experiences:

 

“I never thought I would say that my life changed through completing the Superior Edge program but it did. This program made me a more confident, accepting citizen.  I am more willing and even eager to learn more about opportunities that are right there for me.  There are so many of them and Superior Edge has taught me to go for them.”

~Amanda Kaminski-Wieser

What did I learn about becoming an effective leader?  I learned that everyone has a different leadership style and needs to find their ‘niche,’ and since I followed my heart, everything else followed.  I got involved in an issue that mattered deeply to me and one thing led to another, and it has made me a much more confident, poised, and mature individual. I am not the person I was freshman year, and I contribute that to my leadership involvement on campus.”
