Northern Michigan University continued Homecoming activities on Friday with the unveiling of a new statue in the heart of campus.
It is named after former NMU Board member Gil Ziegler, and members of his family were on hand for the event.
The sun made a brief appearance, but there was a gusty cold wind off of Lake Superior as temperatures fell into the low 50’s.
Northern Michigan University President Fritz Erickson helped to unveil the statue, which is located near Jamrich Hall.
The 1975 NMU national champion football team was also honored Friday with the playing of a documentary about the team’s unlikely championship at the Forest Roberts Theatre. Members of that ’75 team were on hand for the viewing of the documentary.
Photos from both events are posted here and even more on our Facebook page.
