Possible Citizenship Edge Hours - Civic Engagement

On Monday, October 10, from 5-6 p.m., in Jamrich 1322, you will get a chance to Meet & Greet with your ASNMU (student government) representatives.  They will give a brief explanation of how ASNMU works as well as take questions from the audience.  ASNMU advocates for NMU students through various programs and communication with university committees, staff, and faculty.  This is a great time to bring questions, concerns, and ideas that you would like ASNMU members to take on in the future.

Get Motivated with ASNMU on Wednesday, October 12, from 6-7:15 p.m. in Jamrich 1100.  We know the mid-semester blues can get even the most energetic students in a funk.  That's why we are bringing in a motivational speaker, Geeg Wiles of Ahab's Adventures, to refresh and ignite the students back into action.  This event is completely free and will be a perfect way to sit back, listen, and get inspired.
