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.

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.

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.
