Awarding Excellence… In Service

Awarding Excellence… In Service


Congratulations, Northwood! Last Saturday, the NCAA recognized Northwood University with 2018 Division II Award of Excellence accolades, an honor we are proud to accept.

This prestigious award annually honors a Division II school for its campus and community engagement efforts, and this year recognized our Go M.A.D. Day of service. Throughout his career, Northwood football coach and athletic director Pat Riepma had a simple motto for his teams: Go Make a Difference. The Go M.A.D. mantra spread throughout Northwood in the years following. Recently, Go M.A.D. has grown to a university-wide call to action.

In partnership with dozens of community partners right here in Midland, we are able to serve in numerous community engagement and service activities that benefited innumerable people. From across the university 796 students, faculty, staff and community members were involved, performing more than 2,100 hours of service.

Here at Northwood, our students learn success is measured not only by how much you accomplish, but by what you give back. I am proud to be a member of this Northwood family, now recognized nationally for giving back and being good stewards of our community. Congratulations, Northwood!

Have a great weekend!
