Multiple NMU student organizations interact with the community as well as the campus life.
Greek life often organize different charity events, like golf scrambles, tub pushes and dinners. Organizations that focus on different ethnicities and demographics like the Black Student Union or Outlook often put together cultural activities through out the school year with the help of the Multicultural Education and Resource Center. Campus media like the North Wind, Public Eye News and WNMU educate the community. Political organizations have debates or bring in speakers that bring in big crowds to NMU's facilities like Ted Nugent or John Stossel.
“We like to reach out with the city as much as we can,” grad student and Station Manager of WUPX 91.5 Adam Holloway said. “When (MQT and NMU students) connects, there is a sign of respect that only helps things. Especially when the two come together in shared interests; it really connects the communities.”
The Student Enrichment Center and Superior Edge offices are also a great connector between MQT and NMU. The volunteer center within the SEC offices help organize volunteer opportunities needing help around the area ranging from help with yardwork to youth sporting events, allowing individual Wildcats the ability to help out the city that hosts their college.
