Dear NMU Alumnus:

This is an exciting time to be an alumnus of Northern Michigan University. The Wildcat community has a strong sense of energy, pride and dedication. The NMU Alumni Association Board of Directors wants to take this involvement to the next level and has been investigating ways to ensure all alumni are engaged with their alma mater.

The Board has taken the next step in advancing the Alumni Association by extending membership to all alumni. This means all Wildcats are members of the NMU Alumni Association at no charge.  You will continue to enjoy all the same benefits of membership.

More members mean more resources, experiences and expertise to:

  • Strengthen relationships between students and alumni;
  • Establish new events, networks and programs, offering ways to fully engage your alma mater
  • Develop a strong Wildcat culture of philanthropy and service;

We hope that you will continue to support the growth and progress of the Association by making an annual gift to support events, programs and new opportunities to stay connected.  We need our alumni to stay in touch and engaged.

Since our time at NMU, we’ve taken different paths, chosen different professions and led different lives. However, regardless of the path each of us has followed, one thing has never changed:  we will always be Wildcats.

Stay wild. Stay connected.

Jim Jenkin, President

NMU Alumni Association
