Crossing Over, Returning and Learning

Welcome back, Northwood students! This weekend our campus will be busy with staff, faculty and families moving students into housing and wandering our campus to get acclimated to the changes we made this summer. We are excited to welcome back our returning students and to introduce Northwood University to the class of 2021, our new freshmen.

We look forward to an exciting new semester where our students will be inspired to learn. We seek to cultivate their entrepreneurial mindset and desire to make a difference in the world of business, share how a free-enterprise business world allows people to succeed at the highest level, and instill in them the knowledge that ethics and integrity are the basis of a successful society.

This afternoon at Timberwolf Crossover, we will officially add the freshmen to our wolf pack. This tradition symbolizes the transition into the university and the beginning of a new chapter in our students’ lives. Tomorrow, we welcome returning students for our many Welcome Weekend activities, and prepare them for the start of classes next week.

Welcome, new students, and welcome back returning students, faculty and staff. Let’s make this the best year yet.

Have a great weekend!
