Letter to the Editor—NMU should have a day care

Travis Bessner November 18, 2021
Now, if you don’t have a child please try to imagine if you did. We can all agree college can be hard, but imagine raising a child at the same time.

Letter to the Editor—Renaming West Science the wrong call

Philip Niswonger November 16, 2021
Interim President Kerri Schuiling recently sent out a statement about potentially taking the name of Luther West off of the West Science Building. I believe this to be a shameful act by the university and I hope the committee will reject the name change.
WHAT COULD BE LOST—Many are concerned that pieces of campus life such as the important gathering space in Whitman Hall may be lost due to facilities plans created with the aim of increasing university profit.

On Oct. 1, Chair of Northern Michigan University’s Board of Trustees Tami Seavoy accepted Robert Mahaney’s resignation as liaison to the university’s foundation board. Mahaney, CEO of the local real estate giant Veridea Group, claimed his decision was made in order to avoid the “appearance of a conflict of interest,” in regards to the foundation contracting with Veridea Group.

Opinion—Review of Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

Andie Balenger, contributing writer October 28, 2021
As the previews began to roll, there were only a few things I knew for certain: “Dune” would contain a lot of sand, a painful box, and a blue-eyed Zendaya.

Editorial—Administration has a lot on their plate; faculty just trying to put food on the table

North Wind Staff October 13, 2021
With the two main conflicts occurring on campus at the moment, namely the search for the next president and the negotiations for a satisfactory faculty contract, newly appointed interim president Kerri Schuiling certainly has her hands full.

Satire—Commuting from home? Here’s three great places to scream out your agony

Harry Stine, contributing writer October 8, 2021
So today I offer up a resource for those like me, because if there’s anything I’ve learned from my time in college, it’s that the best way to solve your problems is by letting your emotions simply explode through nonverbal, yet extremely audible, actions such as screaming. It’s easy, it’s soothing and most of all it’s affordable.
Dear North Wind, I thought he was different

Dear North Wind, I thought he was different

North Wind Staff September 30, 2021
Just remember: take care of yourself. Buy a fish or a beetle, sneak in a pet chipmunk. Maybe watch a good movie, drink some apple juice, cry in the shower, listen to the “Phineas and Ferb” soundtrack... whatever floats your boat. Just don’t go back to this Tinder boy. You’re worth more than that.

Satire—Actually, raising children in college is really easy

Harry Stine, contributing writer September 27, 2021
After I got a little advice and money from my family, I discovered how cheap both college and apartments in the area are. Some apartments even go for as little as $1,300 a month. I can’t imagine living on campus is much worse. It’s probably only a couple thousand for a few months. That sounds like a good deal to me.
