Welcome from our Dean of Students

Steve Wise, Dean of Students

Hi! I'm so glad you took time to visit our site! I'm Steve Wise, dean of students and I'm very excited about the great things that are happening for student life at Northern. We are in the middle of a number of important projects that will really enhance student life and most of them will be done before you arrive this fall. Just to name a few, our new card-swipe security system will offer increased security while ensuring easy access for residents. We are purchasing new mattresses for all of our rooms and upgrading furniture as needed—including some of our lobby furniture. In conjunction with our new Diesel Technology Building, the exterior of Morgan Hall will get a facelift and our parking lots will have new surfaces.

We are also in the middle of renewing our recreational facilities—the Pin 'N Cue and the Fitness Center in the Student Union Building--and our Student Senate just recently authorized the refurbishing of all of our pool tables and the purchase of new recreational equipment.

Yes, we've been busy--but the best news is that our students have been actively and meaningfully involved in all of these projects and others that are in process. So the really big news is that every day our students are getting more and more involved in shaping the quality of life on our campus and we could use your help! At MSU-Northern, there are plenty of opportunities for you to be involved. If you are looking for a place where you can get a great education and make a big difference on campus and in the community, come join us at Northern. We've been looking for you!

Sincerely yours,


The Dean of Students oversees the following:
