MARQUETTE, Mich. – Northern Michigan University is giving students a day off Wednesday.
President Fritz Erickson responded to a request from students for a “wellness day,” which means there will be no classes, though regular services will be available at the Marquette campus.
Erickson noted that NMU students did not have a spring break in an effort to reduce travel and the risk for COVID-19.
“I know students are really missing spring break, and I’ve been waiting all winter to be able to call a snow day but no snow," Erickson said.
Or at least not enough snow to cancel classes in the Upper Peninsula.
Erickson said a second day off in April will be considered if students believe it would be helpful.
