Northern Michigan University is celebrating the end to the 18-month renovation project of the former University, now the Northern Center. The renaming will be recognized with a public ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, in the Grand Ballroom atrium. Tours of both wings of the facility will follow the program and last until 6 p.m.
The original building was built in 1960. The former “UC” has been completely reimagined and renamed The Northern Center to better describe its high volume use by both the NMU campus and the Upper Peninsula community. Today’s Northern Center features a 12,000 square foot Grand Ballroom that can seat up to 1,000, breathtaking pre-function areas, a completely remodeled Barnes and Noble bookstore, integrated audio-visual technology, award-winning chef and catering services, the impressive Scott L. Holman Executive Conference Room, dynamic alumni and student organization offices, the new Wildcat Den restaurant with a gaming area, and the inviting Don H. Bottum atrium.
Thursday, September 19 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm
