Topical conversations with campus experts
During fall 2020, we created a series of short videos for counselors on topics ranging from admission policy to scholarships to student success and new signature programs. I invite you to check out this playlist of videos dedicated to you and the work you do to support students.

Please consider a visit to NMU. We'd love to have you as our guest at our summer 'camp' or personalized visit. We hosted counselor and family summer camp experiences in July 2018 and 2019. We had so much fun meeting counselors and their family members and sharing our love of NMU and the Marquette area. Kudos to those who climbed Sugarloaf Mountain or jumped off Black Rocks into Lake Superior! We are looking forward to offering the program again in July 2022.
As always, please let us know how we can strengthen our partnership to serve students.
