As the Chancellor of MSU-Northern I want to
congratulate you on choosing Northern and encourage you in your pursuit of
a college education. Northern
has a great deal to offer people who want a quality education and want the
personal attention that a smaller college can provide.
We have adopted the slogan “An Education that Works” because we
believe we are doing things right and that our students are using their
degrees to get rewarding careers.
We have been working hard to develop partnerships
with major corporations to insure that our degrees meet the ever-changing
needs of industry. Part of
those partnerships include co-ops and work study programs that place our
students in the work environment. This
helps our students to understand the relevance of what they are learning
in the classroom and it helps them get their foot in the door on a good
job once they have completed their degree.
We are currently in the process of designing and
building a New Residence Hall and Applied Technology Center. These facilities will enhance student life and will make it
possible for our students to study on equipment that is similar to those
they will encounter in the workplace.
Northern has played a vital part in my personal
education. I started my
college degree at a large institution.
I quickly realized that crowded classrooms and being taught by
graduate assistants was not what I needed.
When I went to Northern I was met by friendly people who understood
my educational needs and were committed to helping me succeed.
I am confident that we can give you “An Education that Works”
just like they did for me.
The years that you spend at MSU-Northern will prove
to be some of the best in your life.
I look forward to seeing you on our campus and on behalf of
everyone at Northern, please accept our warmest welcome!
