Challenge: Accepted

In business today, as in life, the only sure thing is change. That concept may scare the average consumer, but here at Northwood, we embrace it. We recognize that many times our greatest opportunities are presented to us in the form of a challenge. One of our recent challenges was a need to expand student housing at our Midland campus. We saw this expansion as an opportunity to accommodate additional students and add to the Northwood experience. Part of our philosophy calls for taking action, and we have already broken ground on North Village Apartments.

We are adding a three-story complex of modern living and learning spaces to a beautiful, wooded corner of our campus. Take a closer look at what we have planned on the new North Village website. Apartments will vary in size and feature floor plans for one, two and four bedroom units. The doors open on the complex in fall 2017. Challenge, accepted.

As businesses around the world continue to face challenges, we hope they look deeper into the opportunities which present themselves. Whether it’s making the best of a rainy auto show, or snagging a couple interceptions against a rival football team, I’m proud to say Northwood students never miss an opportunity to accept a challenge.

Have a great weekend!
