Tuesday, November 5
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Jamrich Hall 3rd Floor

Faculty, staff, graduate assistants and teaching assistants have a huge impact on our students’ NMU experience, so let’s show our current and prospective students what we (really) look like and who we are! There is also a very brief questionnaire that we encourage you to fill out online prior to having your photo taken. 

  • No appointment is necessary. It will only take a minute or two.
  • There is no charge.
  • You will be provided with a digital file of your portrait for your own use.

Feel free to bring a prop that signifies your scholarship or personal passion and we will take a “fun” portrait as well.
