Northern Illinois University is a huge school for opportunities! A lot of people can actually learn a lot from this school and to build a relationship with other students on campus. The students who commute are friendly as well! NIU is a land of opportunity and it opens doors for great things.

Northern Illinois University is very diverse with many students willing to learn and to help others. I haven't met a mean professor or heard of many.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NIU is a poor quality college. It is located next to the projects so there is a huge gang and drug presence around campus. Many students who live on campus go home on the weekends and many more just commute. If you don't join a Greek organization, your going to be miserable here. I didn't join one and after one year I left the college.

I love Northern! I would not want to go anywhere else & I can confidently say it was the best decision i've made! The school is great, it feels like the home away from home, you never want to leave but when you do you are always ready to come back!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's alright. It's basically the adult version of high school, but with less drama. The students like to party, get wild for the football games. Not much intellectual conversation...unless you're chatting with a professor. Doesn't seem like there are many artsy types, but they aren't uncommon. Not everybody joins a frat or sorority, but lots do.
