President's Messages

It’s Welcome Weekend at Northwood and we are excited to see our students back on campus for the 2015/16 academic year.

Excitement continues to build – quite literally – on our major system-wide restructuring initiative, Moving Northwood University Forward. Construction on our new DeVos Graduate School Building and renovations to the Bennett Sports Center complex are in full swing. These projects are some of the first steps in this initiative.

Millions of U.S. soccer fans cheered last Sunday when the U.S. women’s team clinched the World Cup final, defeating Japan in Vancouver.

June 30, 2015 became a significant day in the history of Northwood University.

As we start the new year focused on “Moving Northwood University Forward”, […]
