"I first toured NMU on a Wildcat Weekend and I felt like this was a place where I could really find myself and grow as an individual. Northern continues to amaze me with all of its opportunities and coming here has been one of the best choices I have made. As a Freshman Fellow, I was able to work directly with cancer cells under the supervision of my faculty mentor."

NMU Prepares for COVID-19 Testing

July 23, 2020 — Northern Michigan University’s Health Center will conduct COVID-19 molecular testing for students, faculty and staff in advance of the Aug. 17 fall semester kickoff. Under clinical supervision, individuals will complete a shallow swipe of their nostrils and place the short swab in a test tube. The samples will be processed and sent to a Chicago lab capable of analyzing large quantities with timely results. After this initial mass screening, the NMU Health Center will be fully equipped to do in-house molecular, antibody and antigen testing and deliver quick results as the need arises.
