Make plans to attend the upcoming Student Club & Involvement Fair on Tuesday, September 30, to meet new friends and explore club and other leadership opportunities. Getting involved on campus can help you feel more connected to the college, resulting in better grades. You can also learn more about Phi Theta Kappa and how to become a Campus Ambassador. With both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to choose from, there's something for everyone!
Did you know walking is considered the easiest and most affordable type of physical activity? If you walked or jogged 2 miles each day for 28 days, it would equal 56 miles. In this challenge, participants track their walking or jogging mileage each day to achieve 56 miles in 4 weeks. NTC students and employees who complete the challenge have a chance to win 1 of 12 $25 NTC Bookstore gift cards. Challenge begins October 6 and finishes November 2.

Instructors are also encouraged to bring their classes down as a group and can coordinate through Student Life.
A campus-wide moment of silence at Northcentral Technical College (NTC) is requested on Thursday, September 11 at 9:59 a.m. It was at that time thirteen years ago, when the World Trade Center’s South Tower began to collapse, killing nearly 3,000 people.
In remembrance, NTC is placing a flag in the Medallion Plaza at the Wausau campus for each of the men, women and children who were lost in this national tragedy. You are invited to visit the poignant display throughout the day Thursday, September 11.
Students, staff and faculty are also invited to honor those who rose in service in response to the attacks and to remind us of the importance of peaceful collaboration by pledging to perform one good deed throughout the week. Everyone is welcome to take the pledge at the regional campuses and Wausau campus in the cafeteria hallway.
