I do enjoy NIU very much, I think it is a good school and my program is run very well. But the area surrounding us is not very safe, there is a lot of gun violence in the are. NIU is known for their educational programs, and is a very well rounded place to get and education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of NIU is that its a good school. It has helpful teachers and friendly students, the food is tastes good and offers lots of connections to a successful career after graduation. There are plenty of job opportunities on and also off campus and transportation is accessible to all students and staff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Northern Illinois. It has a lot of resources for students whether personal, or academically. My experience with the professors have been good so far. I haven't had a professor who didn't like engaging with their students. This is my second semester here at NIU. I like the size of the campus and the free buses for transportation around campus. They are very helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an average school that helps you get your degree. My biggest complaint is the amount of robberies and shootings that happen. While the Dekalb police and NIU work together to make school a safe place, I believe NIU can do a much better job of notifying us when something like this happens.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What first brought me to the Northern Illinois University's Master's in Art Education program was a direct recommendation from an old professor at a different university (even over their own program!), however now that I am here I truly know there's nowhere else I'd rather be for this profession. For the edTPA test we are required to take for licensure, Illinois is one of the highest ranking states in the country, with Northern Illinois University ranking the highest in the state. Not just by a little but by about 20 points on average, with multiple students achieving scores 40 points higher! I have courses with some of the top intellectuals in my field as well as access to their many connections and the structure of the courses build on each other in a way that reinforces knowledge and strengthens skills. Hands in clinical hours help to build confidence and gain experience before tackling student teaching. I could not ask for a better program to be a part of.

NIU is a great school that everyone will enjoy. There is a tranquil atmosphere all over campus. The students and staff are great people. The only thing the school should do is include more extra curriculum activities so that students can get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Northern Illinois University! There are so many opportunities available for students to do no matter what your interests are. The academics prepare you for a successful future in the real world and there are many opportunities to learn outside of the classroom including internships and research. The community feel on campus is strong and you know the students, faculty, and staff all love being there. There is always someone new to meet and have a great conversation with. While there, you can feel that people care about each other and want to watch their peers succeed and do amazing things.
