We're six weeks into the Fall semester and will be welcoming the families of our students to campus this weekend for the annual Family Day celebration. There's a lot planned, so we hope to see several of our students with their families. We'd love to see the photos you're taking during the weekend, so be sure to tag them on social media with #NWOSU or #NWFamilyDay13, and post them to the Northwestern Facebook page.
If you're ever wondering what is happening on campus, please visit the Northwestern website and check out the Student Events Calendar. You also can keep up to date by "liking" the Northwestern Facebook page and following Northwestern on Twitter (@nwosu).
Accreditation visit in April
Several students and employees are working hard preparing for April's visit by an accreditation team from the North Central Association (NCA) of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Posters, table tents, bracelets and more are starting to appear to help those on and off campus learn more about the university's mission statement and how important it is that Northwestern is an accredited university.
A promotions committee for the university's Self-Study has started a campaign called "Credit for Credit: Accreditation Matters to You," and has both a Facebook Page and Twitter handle (@creditforcredit) that can be used to learn more about the process. They also have a hashtag to follow: #c4c
The Self-Study Informational blog on the right also will provide information in this newsletter to keep everyone informed of what is happening throughout this process. The university's mission statement also can be found at right in the red graphic with the Ranger statue. Please take some time to make yourselves familiar with this statement.
