Driving into the NUIAS

The 54th annual North American International Auto Show is upon us! Campus has been busy and buzzing this week as more than 600 students put the finishing touches on their plans to display and promote their vehicles at this year’s event. It’s a showcase of experiential learning.

This year’s show features exotic car teams like Ferrari, Porsche and Audi—who will be featuring the newly released R8 Spider—a Subaru rally car, three Radical Sportscars and the famous Oscar Meyer Wienermobile. Overall, more than 65 manufacturers and 500 vehicles will be on display.

For many, the completely student-run show is synonymous with Northwood University. Each year thousands of visitors come to see the newest vehicles, infamous aftermarket companies and the special events our students plan. This year we welcome our special guests, honored VIP panelists, industry experts, auto dealers and passionate alumni to experience what our students have put together.

I hope to see you at the NUIAS!

Have a great weekend,
