Fall of 2014 brings exciting change to NNU and not just to the physical campus. In addition to the seasonal excitement of welcoming a new class of freshmen, transfer students, and adult and graduate students, NNU is introducing its first fully online bachelor’s degree program for the traditionally aged undergraduate student.
Maggie represents one of the many exceptional students who joined NNU as freshmen this fall. She and her classmates are experiencing and contributing to the outstanding NNU educational community experience.
