Upcoming Events

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly across the country, stability and composure are critical. We want to assure you that the faculty and staff of Northern Michigan University are working closely together to ensure the health and safety of the campus, our students and our communities.

At this time, all of the upcoming alumni events scheduled for March and April are canceled. We will work to reschedule them at a future date.   

More information and updates on Northern’s response to COVID-19 can be found at nmu.edu/covid.

Our thoughts are with you. Stay well.
