Ripple Effects for students


Ripple Effect is a student organization dedicated to helping students overcome obstacles they may face during their time at NMU.

“Ripple Effect has the goal of providing resources to remove obstacles, which allows NMU students to focus on academic and community involvement,” the organization’s student chair Martha Jones said in an email. The organization holds a clothing drive to collect warm clothes for the winter months. Ripple Effect also holds a Stuff Swap for students.

“The Stuff Swap is an event we coordinate with Housing and Residence Life which provides a space where students can donate, exchange, and gather items at the end of the school year,” Jones said. This year Ripple Effect plans to hold an event on Martin Luther King Day to promote their organization and recognize the importance of service.

Ripple Effect meets monthly. Students who are interested in learning more can email Jones at [email protected].
