Representatives from about 40 colleges and universities, including several outside of Michigan, will be present to answer questions about academic programs, costs, support services, and campus life. Staff from NMU's Financial Aid Office will be available to answer questions and representatives from the Armed Forces and NMU's ROTC program will also attend.
Participating high schools will come from the Superior Central, Gwinn, Ishpeming, NICE, Marquette, Munising, Negaunee, Burt Township and Republic-Michigamme school districts.
