Recruitment Marketing: Find Your Flame

University Marketing and Communications works in conjunction with our admissions teams to develop and evolve our recruitment marketing campaigns and creative. Our most recent "Find Your Flame" campaign was inspired by feedback sessions with current students, and the slogan itself was chosen by over 200 surveyed high school students.  

NMU is more than a university, it is where students find their passions and grow into the best version of themselves. It is where they discover the knowledge and determination to make a difference in the world. Their "flame," whatever it may be, is supported and encouraged.

All of NMU's photography, videography, copywriting and creative concepts are developed in-house by UMC's talented team of full-time staff and part-time students.
