Taking the Time to Give Thanks

Taking the Time to Give Thanks


Group of studentsWe have much to be thankful for here at Northwood University! This fall as the holidays kick-off, I want to take a moment to reflect on all of things that I am thankful for:

Our incredible students, who embrace the opportunity to come here and learn, improve and make the most of their educational experience.

Exceptional faculty, the heart of our institution, charged with the important task of teaching our students and instilling in them the value of an ethical, free-enterprise education.

Staff who keep business running and our facilities and campus in top shape for all who live here and those who visit.

Members of the extended Northwood family and our community who share their time, expertise and passion with our students, staff and faculty. Through events such as Go M.A.D. Day we serve the Midland community, and we are grateful to belong in this special place.

And of course, I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Northwood University family, one which grows each year with new students and new alumni who are shaping the world around us. I encourage everyone to take the time this weekend to think about all of the things you are thankful for, and I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday surrounded by loved ones and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!
