What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very small school that can make you feel very lonely and bored especially if you came from far away. Personally did not enjoy my experience here at all and am transferring already after 1 semester here because I just felt so out of place and did not like this university at all. I was disappointed because I was told there is always things to do on campus (which there is not) and that I wouldn't be put in a class no larger than 30 students (almost every class I've had has been 100+ students). Parking is really frustrating because you pay $140 for a parking pass and there is never any parking. It usually takes me 20 minutes to just find an open spot in a far away lot. NMU also gave me the impression that I would be making a lot of friends and that everyone here is friendly when that is very far from true. Everyone had already had their cliques formed on move in day and I was constantly met here by rude people or looks. Overall I really didn't think that coming to this school 6 hours away and being homesick everyday was definitely not worth it because this school hasn't shown or offered anything for it to be worth it. I am very glad I am leaving this school and if you are thinking about going here and are not from the area I would strongly think about reconsidering or thinking very hard about it. The homesickness was real and being in a town with no friends and nothing to do and at a university that lied about a lot of things they offered and gave a false advertisement of what this school is like was really frustrating.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would recommend NMU to anyone who like the outdoors. I will warn the we get a lot of snow in the winter so if you are not a winter person, you should probably go somewhere else. The class sizes are perfect, in my opinion. There is enough people so you can make a lot of friends but not too many to where you are lost in the crowd.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NMU is too expensive for what they have to offer. In fact, they just raised their tuition almost $1,000 per semester with absolutely nothing new to offer. Us students are paying $1,000 more each semester for all the same exact things that have been here the past 3 years that I have been here. The students assume that the president wanted to make a big purchase, so he raised tuition. This school does not care about you; it only cares about the money. It's in a horrible location that gets horrible snow storms. One student even froze to death last year and the university did nothing about it whatsoever. There is never anywhere to park, even though they make you buy a parking pass for $140. I even asked for a refund for my pass since I haven't been able to park on campus even one time this semester (it's week 5) because there are never any spots open. They sell way more passes than they have spaces. They SHOULD take our $70,000 extra we are paying collectively and build a parking garage with LEVELS to make the most of their limited space. Parking at NMU has always been trash and they have known and received many complaints (I know because I have complained and many other students have told me they have made complaints too). Even so, last year NMU cut one of their parking lots in half and sold the other half of the lot. Now, parking on campus is impossible. I hate NMU. If I could go back 3 years in time, I would NEVER choose to go here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Michigan University (NMU) is the second cheapest public university in the state of Michigan. NMU is located in Marquette, MI, an extremely safe town located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As a female student, I was always comfortable walking home from class or downtown at night. The academics at NMU are also top notch. I've received my Bachelor in the Science of Nursing degree and the skills learned at NMU have made me a competitive RN applicant all over the country.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are many reasons why I love Northern. The one reason I chose Northern was for the beautiful winters because I love to cross country ski. I also love how the class sizes aren't too big. One thing they could work on is teachers being around more if a student needs help. The new dorms are super nice and I like the fact that they have a policy where you have to live in the dorms the first two years. The one place that is so amazing to see is the Superior Dome and this is where many sports are played

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice school. It is also a smaller university so it is perfect for those transitioning to college from a small town. There is a decent amount of activities to do, but most of those activities are outdoors and for 6 months out of the school year, the weather is very cold because winter weather begins in October/November and doesn't end until April and sometimes May. I like the smallness of the school because it makes it easy to walk from one end of campus to the other in a decent amount of time. I had good professors and bad. I will say that the dining hall food is not impressive at all. I did not care for a lot of it. Like all schools, Northern has good and bad. Overall, I would say that it is a good school, but it is best for people from a small town.

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.
