What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice that I can give to anybody attending college is go to class, be active in organizations, and do not fall behind. College is ment to not only be an academic learning experience, but a social and personal learning expereince for themselves. One should not be afraid to try new things. Most on campus groups will welcome people just interested in learning about an activty that they do and will be helpful. Most of the organizations have students from all kinds of programs in college and they are almost all willing to help you with your school work if you're having trouble. Just remember that there are hidden resources in college in these groups that the college doesn't necessarily always tell you about. Be active and have fun.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Hey, go to something you can afford. It won't help you any if you are worried about finnances all the time. However, don't go to one of those community colleges. Check their website. If it works nicely, good university. If it stinketh much, don't go there. I wouldn't.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When finding the right college I think it is important to pick one that is far enough away from your home, but still close enough that you can go back when needed. It keeps some level of comfort that Mom and Dad are still there for you when you need them, but you still have all of your new found freedom. As far as making the mots out of your college experience I believe it is important to get out there and go to all of those different activities, meet new people and have fun. This is the time of your life when you do a lot of growing up and a lot of discovering who you really are, so get out there and discover!!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Northern Michigan University is best known for having an Olympic training facility on it's campus, the largest free-standing wooden dome ( the Yooper Dome) in the world. And just recently NMU has been known for having the most LEED-certified renovated residence halls in the Midwest.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say to make the most of your college experice, just get out there and experience the college life for what it really is. It's the only time in your life that you will be able to do it so make the most of it while you can.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how much this university cares about the environment and how it is willing to teach the students here how to better take care of the environment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to parents or students looking for the right college would be to do your homework on the college. Some of the smaller universities might be the leader of the pack in certain fields. You might not find out unless you ask. As for making the most of the college experience, don't be afraid to have a social life! I've had the most fun at (ice) hockey games, and I've met some of my best friends through student organizations, both Greek and non-Greek. Just remember to balance your social life so that your grades don't suffer. Partying every night instead of designating one or two nights a week to kick back and relax can find you on academic probation or flunked out before you know it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about NMU would be the quality of the laptops in use by the university. The audio is not that great on them.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Northern Michigan is a smaller school, with a student body hovering between 8000 and 9000 students. If you like big class sizes, Division I ranking in all sports, or are technologically illiterate, you probably should not go to NMU.

make sure that if you are from a small highschool you dont go to a college that is too big because you will feel overwhelmed, and vice versa. and dont worry about where your friends are going, find the best school for you and what you want to do.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't go to school and choose a specific major simply because you don't want to disappoint your parents. College should be something you're enthusiastic about (and going to class shouldn't be something you dread). Pick a major that relates to something you love (that you can make a living from) and go for it! Remember that college is what you make it to be, so if you're slacking, not participating, and partying, or staying up all night on the internet, it won't be a pleasant experience. But if you're active in class and have interest in what you're learning and take care of yourself from a health standpoint (that means sleeping enough!) you'll find college to be a lot more enjoyable. And parents, be realistic and supportive of your college-bound student, it will make their life (and yours) so much easier!
