MARQUETTE, Mich.—Four August graduates of Northern Michigan University completed all four edges of the Superior Edge program.

            Superior Edge focuses on four different components: citizenship, diversity, leadership and real-world experience. Each of the four “edges” involves 100 hours above and beyond normal degree requirements. Participants must also write a reaction paper and create an online portfolio.

            The program requires no additional cost and is open to anyone—regardless of major, class status or grade point average. It is also self-designed by students to match their interests and fit their schedules. They have the option of completing any or all edges, with the results reflected on their student enrichment transcripts. Those who put in the full 400 hours graduate with special honors for achieving the Superior Edge.

            The students who achieved the Superior Edge were:


Ishpeming: Russell Steinhoff; Marquette: Leigh Dudley; Nicholas Ward; Sterling Heights: Brian Czulinski.
