Wheeler Hall’s cornerstone was laid in 1892, when Northland was just a small school with big ambitions. Since then, the foundation has not only remained a symbol of Northland’s strength and resilience, but a reminder of the many people who have made Northland what it is today. The engraved stones of Wheeler Hall are a symbol of the power of education to transform lives. They tell stories of students who came to Northland with dreams and ambitions, and left with the knowledge and skills they needed to achieve them. They tell stories of faculty who inspired their students to reach their full potential. They tell stories of staff who worked tirelessly to make Northland a welcoming and supportive community, creating a place where students could thrive.
What’s your stone story? We want to hear about the challenges you faced and the successes you achieved, the friends you found and the professors who inspired you. We want to hear about the memories you made on campus, and the impact Northland has had on your life.
The stories we collect will help to preserve our history. They’ll also inspire others who are considering attending Northland, or who are looking for ways to connect with our community. Stone stories will be featured through various outlets, including editions of Northland College Magazine.
