The fall quarter at Northern has begun. Students are going in and out of classes, gathering for our community dinners and chapel on Tuesdays, and hanging out in our student commons. It is an exciting place to be!

Also exciting is the number of students on campus this fall. Our student population has increased by 20% and the number of new students has increased by over 40%. All our programs, Doctoral, Masters, and Diploma, have grown in enrollment this year.

The increase is attributed to new and innovative programs like the Doctor of Ministry in Congregational Leadership which is offered in partnership with the Center for Excellence in Congregation Leadership at the Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake, Wisconsin and masters level concentrations in Christian Community Development and Pastoral Care & Counseling. Another great addition was the availability of new grants for students in need. Indeed, Northern is an exciting place to be!
