            2018 marks North Central Michigan College's 60th year of ensuring local access to quality higher education for this community's citizens. North Central is part and parcel of our collective heritage and history.

            Celebrations include an entertaining and informative trip down memory lane through a series of six monthly magazine inserts and videos. From January through June, the College will examine one decade at a time, taking an amusing look at what was happening during that decade.

            Watch for videos on TV and social media and printed inserts in the Petoskey News-Review each month, celebrating a decade of North Central’s history.  There will be entertaining information on what was happening at North Central, what was happening in US history, pop culture and the economy during that decade, and hear from some of the College’s well-known alums. Then the community is invited to a decade-themed celebration at North Central this summer. More details to follow.
