ASNMU wants to help NMU students

Whew. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m super excited for summer to begin. I just want to get the word out that ASNMU is here to be your ears from the administration and your voice to the administration. Not only that, but we are here to make NMU the best school for you.

I have had some fantastic chances to do some incredible things here at Northern. I got to learn how to dance from the swing club, I learned about gardening, Russia, politics from other clubs. I got to go to New York for Radio X; not to mention, I learned to do my own radio show (so much fun). I had the chance of a lifetime to go to Cuzco, Peru for study abroad; talk about life changing experiences. I learned to SCUBA dive and found my passion in life here at NMU. My goal for this next year is to help you make your college experience as much as you want it to be. I understand some of you love football, and others love sculpting, and others, for some strange reason, enjoy swimming in Superior.

If there is anything I can do to help you learn how things work here at Northern, what to do or who to talk to if you have any questions or concerns, please, do not hesitate to come to my office, email ASNMU, Facebook me, do whatever you need to do –– chase me down on the sidewalk if it would help you. I’m here for you, and I said it before, I need your accountability. Getting elected is the hardest part of my job. If NMU isn’t everything you want it to be, let me know and we’ll figure out what to do about it.

I also wanted to mention that in my last article I said something that came across as putting down the past presidents; that was not my goal whatsoever. I was only trying to express to the students that I was expecting to surpass what the previous presidents have done in particular area. So to them I want to say, I’m sorry. Thank you all so much for all of your support. Now study hard for those exams, and have a great summer.
