Diversity is something that is very important at our school. Our president has made a large effort to make students aware of all the challenges that are faced around the world. We have numerous guest speakers, seminars, and courses about the subject. There is also a high emphasize placed on technology. We are considered to be a wired campus because computer usage has been integrated into many academic areas. All students have access to laptops. In addition there are a lot of different programs that help develop leadership skills and focus on the importance of giving back to the community.
Northern Michigan University is considered "Northernly Natural" The UP is known for the gorgeous nature and the wonderful outdoor experiences. At anytime you can go outside and do something and you will most likely have a group of people to go with. There are many beaches to go to and swim, play frisbee or volleyball. Also the UP has some mountains to climb which include Sugarloft and Hogsback. In the fall climbing these mountains when you finally get to the top the view is outstanding. I've never seen a better view before in my life.
