“I chose to attend Northern State University after I had my scholarship audition here on campus. One of the things that stood out the most to me about NSU when I was making a school choice was how personable the staff was here. Immediately when I stepped on the NSU campus I was welcomed by all. It felt like home to me, and I will cherish my experience at NSU for the rest of my life. It has been the best four years of my life,” mentioned Wall.

Weber has studied under Mr. Michael Skyles during his time at Northern. He will graduate from Northern in May. His future plans include applying for graduate school to pursue a degree in music therapy after taking a year off to work.

“I chose to attend Northern because of the excellent music faculty and program that Northern provides. Many of my relatives have attended Northern as well, and I am proud to carry on the tradition,” mentioned Weber.
