MARQUETTE – In conjunction with the “Return to Learn” initiative, Northern Michigan University will hold an open house from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, at the Jacobetti Center.

            Recent studies have revealed that Michigan leads the nation in the number of adults who have college credit but did not earn degrees. Return to Learn is a new, statewide program implemented by Gov. Jennifer Granholm that focuses on getting more adults back to school to finish their college careers. 

            “The goal of our Return to Learn open house is to have an evening on campus where students who have previously attended college can find out what the steps are and what they need to do to come back,” said Kevin Stulz, assistant director of NMU’s admissions office. “And it doesn’t just pertain to those who attended NMU; those who have college credit somewhere else can still finish their degrees here. We’re not here to put pressure on anyone; we just want adults to know that it is still possible for them to earn their degrees.”

            The open house will feature representatives from all three of NMU’s undergraduate colleges, as well as financial aid, academic advising and admissions. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Stulz at 227-2650.
