Learning is a full-body experience.


The future of education is moving away from the instructor at the front of the classroom and the students at the tables. Part of the excitement of college is working side by side with your professors, learning with and from one another.

Whether it’s field work at local archeological digs, a writing and poetry intensive while camping on Beaver Island, or an opportunity to wear waders while collecting specimens in the Bear River, it’s experiential learning at its best…at North Central Michigan College.


I hear, and I forget.

I see, and I remember.

I do, and I understand.
