“We are looking forward to a congratulatory celebration that recognizes the accomplishments of our students,” said Peter W.

This is the last graduating class to be congratulated by Karsten as president. He will become president of Baker College of Auburn Hills on Sept. 1, 2014. Under Karsten’s six-year tenure as president of the Owosso campus, student enrollment and the number of graduates hit record levels, the 40,000-square-foot Health Sciences Building and the 43,000-square-foot ADI of Michigan facility opened, and several new programs and loft-style student housing at Woodard Station were added. Karsten will be succeeded by Aaron J. Maike, current president of Baker College of Allen Park.
