This time of year, most gifts come wrapped and wearing a bow. Here at Northwood, gifts take many forms.
Tomorrow we will recognize the accomplishments of 257 undergraduate, adult degree program and graduate students who have realized their educational aspirations and start new journeys in each of their careers. For these students, the gifts of family, friends and the culmination of hard work and dedication to their educations, will shine brighter than any package under the tree.
Northwood benefits from the many gifts of our faculty, staff and students. Each of you work hard throughout the year to make our institution great, and together these efforts have prepared yet another group of students to shape the world. The gifts of all of us, together, help set us apart in all that we do.
Sincerest congratulations to our winter 2016 graduates, and happy holidays to all members of the Northwood family.
I wish you a restful holiday break and joyous New Year!
