Be on NMU's Social Media

University Marketing and Communications allows current students or alumni to takeover our official Instagram account throughout the year. The goal of takeovers is simple: showcase the experience of Wildcats, both on-campus and off. 

NMU's Instagram reaches thousands of prospective, current and past students, while also bringing together the Marquette community and other university supporters. Instagram takeovers give current students the opportunity to highlight what a day in their life is like, while also sharing an authentic image of Northern Michigan University.

Note: Not all individuals who submit an application to host a takeover will be selected. Decisions regarding takeovers will be made at the discretion of University Marketing and Communications.

You can also find NMU on these social channels:
