The Northern Michigan University Alumni Association is excited to launch Northern Now, a monthly digital event series for alumni and friends. Join us for #WildcatWednesday as we kick-off the series on Wednesday, October 14 at 7 p.m. ET with exclusive interviews featuring Heidi Voigt, Head Coach of NMU’s Swimming and Diving Program and Grant Potulny, Head Coach of the NMU Wildcat Hockey Team. Moderated by Jessica Jones, Development Officer for Wildcat Athletics, attendees will hear an update from both coaches, virtually tour the newly-renovated hockey locker room, receive insight from student athletes, and participate in a live Q&A.

The event is free and registration is required. Once you register, you will receive the link to the live stream.
