Northern offers its 7,600 students an abundance of opportunities to explore their interests
in and out of the classroom. From our brand new residence halls to our groundbreaking
academic programs, we invite you to start your story at a school that can offer you the
world -- whatever you want that world to look like.
Northern students are deeply involved in real-world scientific and creative research, professional
conferences and educational community service from the start. Present at a national conference,
travel abroad, or earn a leadership role in a student organization. What will you do at NMU?
Northern's campus is right in the heart of Marquette, MI and stretches all the way to the sandy shores
