Barack Obama at Northern Michigan University

My Alma Matter was paid a visit yesterday by President Obama. He talked about the efforts NMU is making to improve access to broadband internet in a rural area. He also spoke of how investment by the government helped to create the internet and now must invest to make sure everyone has access to it. This is the first time in 100 years that a sitting president visited Marquette, Michigan for a non campaign event. I watched the speech and all I could think is: It’s a great day to be a wildcat.

Obama is inspirational in words and deeds. I too am proud to be a NMU grad. Had to believe thinking back to the late 60s and early 70s when as one of hundreds of black students at NMU that the President of the US would visit and he would be black. But, NMU has always been innovative and welcoming of people, ideas and technology.
