Parents of Current Students

Welcome Parents

As your son or daughter takes part in the college experience, I want to reinforce to you the opportunities provided at Northern Michigan University. As the Dean of Students, it is important to me that all students at the university are provided every opportunity for success. Northern is an excellent university that not only excels academically, but is considered one of the most technically advanced universities in the country. In addition, our support services are second to none.

Over and over again, I hear from parents about how pleased they are with the individualized attention that not only their student gets, but how the parent is treated and valued by the university. Here at NMU, we are interested in forming a partnership between us, the student and you, the parent. Together we create a team that puts an emphasis on academics, service and the need to enjoy their college years. Whether I am traveling the Midwest visiting with parents about opportunities at Northern, visiting with parents at New Student Orientation or at Family Weekend, the message is always the same, "The university has done a great job in answering all of our questions, has met all of our expectations and we are glad that our son/daughter chose Northern."

As you continue through the collegiate process, I hope you contact us if you have any questions. Finally, I want you to know that I am not only the NMU Dean of Students, but am the proud parent of current NMU students and graduates.
