Why are you “forever Green”?

"Northwest is family. While we spend a short time on campus, our status as students, alumni or even just fans of the University mark us forever as part of that family. It is our responsibility to serve as advocates wherever we are, working to extend the reach and the excellence that those associated with Northwest bring to businesses and communities all across the country."
