It is a philosophy of the spirit.

COLLEGE INFORMATION – The automotive industry has been expanding for the last five years and experts believe this trend will continue well into the next decade. This expansion, in addition to other factors, is predicted to create a 25% gap in employment in the automotive industry by 2020. Now is the perfect time for students to choose a career in automotive. Many 2013 graduates of automotive programs had to choose from 2-5 job offers. Over the next 6-10 years, these opportunities will continue to increase. Ferris State University supplies candidates for internships and full time employment to all of the major automotive and equipment manufacturers, suppliers and retailers.  Starting salaries for graduates of their automotive bachelor programs are $45-65K annually. If you are technical-minded, with the ability and desire to learn, grow and become future leaders in the automotive industry, Michele Harvey of Ferris State University would be pleased to speak with you regarding their programs and potential career opportunities.  See Mrs. Thompson for her contact information.

COLLEGE QUICK FACT OF THE DAY – Hillsdale College was founded as Michigan Central College in Spring Arbor, Michigan, in 1844. Nine years later it moved to Hillsdale and assumed its current name. As stated in its Articles of Association, the College undertakes its work “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings resulting from the prevalence of civil and religious liberty and intelligent piety in the land, and believing that the diffusion of sound learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” Though established by Freewill Baptists, Hillsdale has been officially non-denominational since its inception. It was the first American college to prohibit in its charter any discrimination based on race, religion, or sex, and became an early force for the abolition of slavery. It was also the second college in the nation to grant four-year liberal arts degrees to women. Professor and preacher Ransom Dunn, who would serve Hillsdale College for half a century, raised money to construct the new hilltop campus in the early 1850s by riding 6,000 miles on horseback on the Wisconsin and Minnesota frontier. It was largely through Dunn’s efforts that Hillsdale would survive while over 80 percent of colleges founded before the Civil War would not.

College Quick Fact of the Day – Some Northern Michigan University degree programs to receive national or international recognition in the past three years have been art and design, business, computer science, education, English and nursing.
