Very soon, a new class of Timberwolves will arrive at Northwood University. As they are transitioning from high school to college, they are imagining what the next four years will bring as they integrate their learning year-by-year.

Summer can be a time to take life at a slower pace, but not at Northwood University!  Our campus continues to buzz with activity. This year we will have about 3,000 visitors on our campus in Midland, all engaged in activities to develop their leadership skills, athletic acumen and musical talents. We were especially proud […]

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.
