Northern Michigan University holds winter student orientation

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A new group of Northern Michigan University students were introduced to campus life Thursday. The university held its winter semester orientation in Jamrich Hall.

During the presentation, N.M.U. staff and safety officers briefed the students on the ins and outs of campus life. Topics ranged from N.M.U.'s drug policy, campus sexual assault, and the dangers of Lake Superior. N.M.U. staff says incoming students in the winter semester differ from those in the fall.

“Winter orientation is a little different because a lot of times there's a lot of transfer students. Very few first time students,” says Derek Hall, N.M.U. Spokesperson. “So they already know what they're doing, we're basically trying to teach them how to be successful here at Northern.”

N.M.U. will host their student club fair in Jamrich Hall and group fat tire bike ride at the Academic Mall next Wednesday and their N.M.U. ski night at Marquette Mountain next Friday. Winter classes start on Monday.
