What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a second graduate degree seeking student, I am changing my career to early childhood special ed and NIU was my top choice. I work full time, am a mom of 2 and my professors are very helpful and considerate to my time issues. I can get a hold of them easily and they are very helpful. I only wish my academic advisor was more helpful... I'm learning the hard way that I need to be more proactive in learning the state standards and preparing myself

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NIU is a great hidden gem amongst Illinois schools. It can be a great home to many and offers great academics alongside field experience and extracurricular opportunities to expand beyond your comfort zone. There are places where NIU could improve, but overall it is a great school across the board and has something for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty good school. However, safety is questionable at night and some professors are better than others. However, NIU is broke. We don't even have money to fix the clocks in Gabel Hall and are forced to use a middle school auditorium for performances because they keep putting off the construction of a theater.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a transfer student to Northern Illinois University I was a little afraid because I didn't know what to expect. Once I arrived to campus on my orientation day I felt more at home. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable all my questions were answered before I could even ask. The campus tour was very helpful because it game students the ability to identity with a sorority or in general with someone of their same race , passion and major. I believe Norther Illinois University offers each student and equal opportunity to succeed and seek help academically or personally. I'm very satisfied with my school peers and staff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Northern Illinois University. They have large school opportunities with a small school feel. I knew they could give me the education I needed to be successful in my career. I love being a Huskie. The campus is beautiful and there is always something to do. It just feels right and feels like home to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school. Professors are friendly and most are very ept at their job, classes are challenging but not overly so, and people on campus are very friendly and always eager to help. Food in dining halls is good and residence halls are clean and safe. Overall it's a school that I would highly recommend attending.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student transferring into the school, I was worried that the school would let me down based off of all the rumors that go along with the school. However, once i finally attended I was extremely motivated to keep going. I was apart of the esports club, the video game design club, and I even was apart of the honor society. Norhtern Illinois has many oppurtunities within the school for anybody to be social.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is a lot of room for improvement for NIU due to the budget not being passed for over three years. As a result, there's a lot of renovations that are put on hold and most classes and rooms look outdated compared to some of the newer buildings made before the budget crisis. However, it is tolerable and it will serve as a convenient way for people to go to a good school without going out of state. Most people you'll meet over there are great and you're more than likely going to make friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Illinois University is a lively college with s lot of student interaction and engagement. Professors and instructors take a genuine interest in the success of students, and make classes interesting and fun. The one issue I have is with advising - had I been given more thorough information, I'd have made slightly different decisions that would have made my college experience easier and less expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school that is committed to their students and making sure everyone has enough resources to learn and succeed in the intended major. There are plenty of ways to get involved with the school while you are not in class, as well.
