NEW! Virtual College Tour NEW!
T.W.I.C.E. is planning two-way interactive college visits through our educational videoconference connections. We have asked a number of community colleges and universities to conduct an online interactive visit with local school districts to provide an insight to their program offerings. The students will be able to ask questions and request more information. The goal is to provide students an opportunity to connect and see which college might be a good fit for them.
Event: Campus Video Visit with NMU
Date: February 4th & 5th
Time: 3 sessions 9am, 11am, and 1pm (40–50 min each)
Topic: Join Northern Michigan University current students and an Admissions Counselor for a 40-50 minute interactive video presentation. The presentation will highlight academic programs, scholarship information and financial aid, extracurricular opportunities, campus life and the Marquette area. We encourage and welcome interactions and questions from students.
Connection: Video Bridge provided by NMU. Alternate connections provided by T.W.I.C.E.
