Town & Campus (T&C) is a volunteer organization dedicated to connecting our area communities with Northwood University's campus, students, people, and events. The result? A relationship fostering collaboration-students involved with our cities and causes (did you know that NU students are vital volunteers with many local agencies?), and residents engaged with the University. Town & Campus members play an essential role in community and student development and have a great deal of fun along the way.


Since the late 1960s, an ever-expanding group in our area has found friendship, fun, and a great deal of satisfaction as members of the community/college liaison group Town & Campus.

We've shared time and resources with students, faculty, and staff at Northwood University and we've "stayed in the intellectual loop" through creative events focused on real-world outcomes-outcomes influenced more and more by access to higher education-and particularly by Northwood's distinctive private enterprise, entrepreneurial-based academics.

To put it more plainly, we've felt connected and we've made a difference. Whether linking with other area colleges and area business incubators or hosting students from around the world, supporting the hands-on student produced auto and fashion shows, or enjoying Main Street's Northwood Gallery, we've encouraged a win/win relationship between our campus and community. And (most important of all) we've watched the graduates we've supported go on to successful careers and lives.

So, as one of our members said recently, join us and "be the connection!"
