How a Catastrophic Event Can Unite a Campus In Rebuilding a Community

On August 2, 2015 the US island of Saipan was devastated by Typhoon Soudelor, as was Northern Marianas College. All 25 campus buildings of Northern Marinas College were damaged, with many deemed inoperable. The College community rallied to help restore the campus and to contribute time, energy, and resources throughout the community. NMC became a beacon of hope...of strength...of community service.
