Preparing for the 2018-19 Year

Crews of workers have been on every inch of Northwood University’s campus this summer preparing for the return of our students and the start of the new school year. We started the first of three phases of renovations to our Strosacker Library, started work on Founders Garden and the one-of-a-kind outdoor space along our Mall Walk, and replaced our grass field in Hantz Stadium with safer and more durable artificial turf. On the north end of campus, returning students will notice North Village phase two is underway and on track to open next year. Before we welcome—and welcome back—our students for the fall semester, we just have a few more projects to complete.

For me, nothing marks the kick-off to a new school year and the fall season better than the annual Bay Harbor celebration and symposium. This weekend, members of the Northwood family will come together for this event, reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, and lay the groundwork for another outstanding year.

I look forward to welcoming Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to Bay Harbor on Saturday to speak at our symposium on “Expanding the American Dream.” AG Schuette will be joined by our own Dr. Tim Nash to review the United States economy from the year so far, and to take a look at what lies ahead. The symposium is free and open to the public, and I encourage you to attend. More information can be found here.

I look forward to seeing everyone in the coming weeks!

Have a great weekend,


Keith A. Pretty, J.D. President and CEO Northwood University 4000 Whiting Drive Midland, MI 48640 989.837.4203
