5,000 College Students arrive this week!

welcome students sign REVISED 800.jpgTo recognize the importance of 5,000 Carleton and St. Olaf students living in Northfield, the NDDC is launching its annual “Welcome Students” campaign. We’ve distributed a Welcome Students poster to all downtown merchants to put in their front windows or the walls of their shop along with a letter detailing the arrival dates of students.

On the campuses we’re distributing a flyer showing a directory of downtown businesses (anyone can download a pdf of this directory from our home page), a letter from Mayor Lansing and welcome quotes from the two college presidents. This flyer is a wonderful partnership between the Northfield News, the NDDC, and 30 downtown businesses that supported the project with paid advertising.
