INTERACTIVE DORM WINS AWARD

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – A virtual dorm room on the Northern Michigan University Web site has won an Excellence Award in the 2003 University and College Designers Association (UCDA) Design Show.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The site, www.nmu.edu/myroom, allows prospective students to create their own space by arranging furniture and adding items typically found in NMU residence hall suites. It is intended as a fun way for students to start planning and preparing for residence hall living before they make the actual move to campus.

The interactive feature was designed by Stamats Communications for NMU.
