MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Northern Michigan University wants to change its slogan after 20 years but some students are not afraid to speak their minds that they do not care for a proposed new one.
The Mining Journal of Marquette reports ( http://bit.ly/1h6wKmd ) that university Interim President David Haynes says "Fearless Minds" is a front runner in the search for a slogan to replace "Northern. Naturally."
But student Devin Manges dislikes "Fearless Minds" so much that she started an online petition against it. She says she does not necessarily favor keeping the current slogan, but it's better than the alternative.
Communications Director Cindy Paavola says downstate marketing firm Genesis has been working with the university on a new marketing campaign. She cautions that no final decision has been made on the slogan.
