What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Michigan University is in a beautiful part of the country. It's a great place for adventure especially if you love hiking, snowboarding, and skiing. The people live for hockey games and their meat-filled pastries known as pasties. The living on campus isn't the worst for college dorms if you're staying in the older dorms which I did for my time there because it was cheaper. The newer dorms are more like hotel rooms rather than place to call a temporary home. I never got the chance to live off campus, but had several friends that had the opportunity to. Many people don't rent apartments like people do at a lot of other universities, people who live around Northern will actually rent houses with multiple people. I was told that it was easier and cheaper than renting apartments and more people can share it. The on campus apartments are quite nice, they have a small kitchen area and you have to share a bedroom with someone depending on how many people you share with, the more you share with the cheaper the apartment is but the maximum amount in one is only four people. The school has recently gone through a lot of remodeling, this made getting around campus kind of a pain at the start but after it was completed, getting around campus wasn't too bad. Academically, the school is great. I loved most of my professors because they took an interest in the lives of students and did everything they could to help us achieve our goals. I was given a lot of opportunities here to do research that bolstered my resume and given the skills I needed to apply to the real world. Northern Michigan University attracts a lot of unique people, there you can make friendships that will last a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Michigan University, in my opinion, is one of the safest universities in Michigan to attend. They are all about making sure you get home safe and that you are safe at all times. It also has a very homey feeling to it. The school size isn't that big, so it is a great community to be a part of. They are all about making sure no one is lonely and that you always have a friend. The faculty also are very caring and make sure if you need help that you have it. It is also their goal to make sure nobody goes hungry while attending college there. They also provide multiple job opportunities for the students that work with their college schedule.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be attending NMU this coming Fall, I cannot express how excited I am to become a WILDCAT! This school is not only located in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but also provides an outstanding education and college life a student could ask for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing school that offers so much other campuses do not. The studies that they have, that I am choosing to do will give me an educational base to become so much more. Its focus and the opportunities it has to offer are amazing. Northern Michigan University will help students excel not only in their intended major but in the life of being a student. Northern Michigan University is very well known for making sure undergraduate students succeed as it offers many programs and opportunities that can help get students the experience and knowledge needed for them to achieve their goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am not currently enrolled at Northern Michigan University, I am however a frequent visitor. My brother as well as several close friends attend, so I find myself hanging around campus and the dorms a lot. The dorms are pretty well maintained, they seem to have adequate space. The laundry rooms are convenient and free, at least in the halls I frequent. Parking is pretty disorganized, there seems to be the constant problem of residents and students unable to find parking spots. I’ve met some professors, and they seem professional and invested in their students. They are usually available when students have questions or need a little extra help. The food on campus is relatively good, decent variety, although after living there for a while the choices get boring. Overall I’d say NMU is a great school, and one of my top two choices when I graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

i came to northern from Arizona and it honestly was such a welcoming community with great people. the classes and campus are nice and there is a lot to do and be involved in. with there being either college teams, recreational or club teams it makes the diversity well rounded.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To be honest about this school is that it's decent but not always the best. They constantly are using the money to build something that we don't actually need. The school is understaffed in professors and usually might not offer a class one semester but they will the next semester, so it can be frustrating sometimes when you need a class but it's not offered, but hey, school is the one who decides where the money goes. So that is really frustrating. But the community is a good one though, people are nice and friendly. The views awe many and everyone has many different opinions about things, but in the least it can be said that the campus is a safe place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Here at Northern Michigan University there is a a place and a club for any and everyone. The people here are very nice, although from time to time it may not seem like it. Going to class from the dorms to just about anywhere on campus is less than a 15 minute walk which I think it really nice. Every time I go to the dinning hall I always see people I haven't seen before, which is refreshing to know that there is always new friends to make also!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The experience I had that the young lady who did the tour was walking too fast. They lost my parents and one of my parents is disabled. Her Id didn't work in lot of the rooms. I just feel she should have done a run down to make sure the important areas were able to view. People come to far for apologies. People were from Texas and Wisconsin, and Swartz Creek area. She didn't even ask if we wanted water to drink after all that walking around. I like the school and the athletic area. I want to be apart of the wildcats. Visitation just wasn't cool at all. Hopefully my experience will be going better.
