Experiential Learning at the NUIAS

This weekend, Northwood University celebrates our 53rd Annual International Auto Show. The show has grown over the last five decades to become the largest outdoor new car auto show in North America. It is a marquee event for Northwood, and -- for more than 600 students each year -- it provides an unparalleled learning experience.

Experience is a critical component of leadership. Here at Northwood, we value real-world opportunities to apply our fundamental work ethic, solve problems and achieve goals. Using hands-on, experiential learning situations helps to prepare our students to be professionals in the ever-changing business landscape. As many of our more than 56,000 alumni would agree, learning experiences like that of NUIAS set our students apart.

Many of the businesses who help to make the NUIAS possible share our values. On behalf of Northwood, I would like to extend a special thank you to this year’s presenting sponsors: KAR Auction Services, Cox Automotive, CDK Global, Ally, EFG Companies, Auto Value and Reynolds & Reynolds.

We welcome families, alumni and friends to join us this weekend for the NUIAS and Homecoming festivities as we celebrate another successful opportunity to let tomorrow’s leaders shine.

Have a great weekend!
