Planning student diversions


The Special Events Committee is the group responsible for planning major events at NMU. According to the organization’s web page, they plan events such as homecoming, which includes Dead River Games and the Homecoming Parade. The group seeks to provide a variety of fun events for students each semester.

“Members in our committee get experience in event planning, student affairs, and make great connections across campus throughout the year,” Special Events Coordinator Noah Roberts said in an email.

 The Special Events Committee is currently brainstorming ideas for future events. This month they are working with Marquette After Dusk to hold HallowFest 2019. They are planning to host some escape rooms at the event.

The Special Events Committee at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays in Jamrich 2309. Interested students can email [email protected] for more information.
