UP NORTH UNIVERSITY -- OUR STORY

THE INCEPTION OF THE COMPANY – BACKGROUND OF THE IDEA

Up North University (UNU) was born out of an idea to capture the unique essence & romantic notion of the Northwoods, and to celebrate the regional culture.

WHAT ‘UP NORTH’ MEANS

To many people, ‘Up North’ conjures up thoughts of fresh air, clear lakes, running streams, starlit evenings, Northern Lights, wildlife, campfires, rustic cabins, family fun, and lasting, lifelong memories.

WHAT WE LEARNED

Most take back home with them some sort of memento, apparel, or merchandise branded with the name of a town or some other designation of the time spent ‘Up North.'

OUR VALUE PROPOSITION

The value to the customer is being part of and the identification with the institution of ‘Up North.’

EARN YOUR DEGREE WITH US

You can earn your faux Bachelor’s degree by successfully completing the online exam. Diplomas can be purchased online after successful completion of the exam.  Coming Soon:  faux Master’s and Ph.D. degrees.  Each exam will contain questions about the Northwoods' history, facts, culture, etc., with the exams becoming exceedingly more difficult.

CAMPUSES

Phillips, WI is the main campus for UNU.  Other extension campuses may be added at later dates.  (Contact UNU Faculty for details.)

OUR PLEDGE

     To be good at what we do
     To be good to our customers
     To be good to each other
     To help grow interest in the Northwoods
     To hopefully see you ‘Up North!’

WHY MOST OF OUR APPAREL PRODUCTS COME FROM GILDAN

Gildan does most of its manufacturing in Honduras, Haiti and Mexico. Often times, apparel manufacturers who send jobs overseas aren’t known for valuing either their workers or the environment. Gildan is different.

Gildan ensures that employees and the environment are improved, and not exploited by its presence. The company submits itself to the scrutiny of two watchdog organizations:  Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production (WRAP) and the Fair Labor Association (FLA).

Here’s the best part: we’re not paying more for Gildan products than we would with a competitor. The company consistently provides us with comfortable, durable garments at a very competitive price.

We hope you enjoy your Up North University product experience as much as we do creating them!

CONTRIBUTIONS

10% of UNU’s net quarterly profits will be tithed, going to charitable organizations & causes selected by the Faculty.

Thanks for shopping with us, and thanks for taking the time to get to know us better. We hope you'll be back again soon!

Cheers, 
The UNU Faculty
