About the Sponsor
The NMU campus is situated in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. With Lake Superior nearby, and access to miles of trails and bike paths, the region provides ample opportunities to get into nature for rest and recreation, or to hone the skills picked up in the school's Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management degree program. In addition to the outdoor program, the 4-year school offers a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs to help students prepare for the future. To learn more, visit the school's website.
These downloads contain important information to help you prepare for your course. Use the course syllabus as a guideline for making your travel and study plans; note that topics and times may change subject to local weather conditions. Remember you must be present and engaged for the entire course or practical session to be eligible for certification. Be prepared. Thoroughly read the student handbook as it provides detailed information about expectations—yours and ours—what to bring, wear, and how to study. Please contact our office with any questions.
