Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – For those interested in attending or learning more about Northern Michigan University, a program titled “Connect to NMU—Campus Showcase” will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5, at the NMU University Center in Marquette.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The program will give potential students an opportunity to meet and talk with current NMU students, get an academic perspective from an NMU staff member, and receive assistance with financial aid, orientation and housing. They can also meet other students planning to enroll at NMU.  Participants will have a chance to win prizes. Â   

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  Other program options include a walking tour of campus at 11:30 a.m. led by NMU student tour guides and opportunities to meet with faculty members representing each academic department from 3:15-4:30 p.m.  Staff from various student service departments such as financial aid, housing, student activities and the Honors and First Year programs will also be available for questions.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  “After experiencing this program, we want students to walk away with a real understanding of why NMU is the right fit for them” said Jon Teichman, senior admissions counselor.  “Since most of the students participating have already been accepted here, the additional steps are crucial.”

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  Please register in advance at www.nmu.edu/admissions/connect/. Lodging options are available at www.marquette.org.  For more information, contact Teichman at 906-227-2650.
