I love Northern so much! There is a ton of student involvement EVERYWHERE you go! People are genuinely nice and it's really easy to make friends! The academics are rigorous, are preferred to be that way. The professors are all about the students are make sure they are almost always available! Northern has just an overall great atmosphere and it's a great community to be a part of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Michigan University is truly a unique college experience, with small class sizes and professors who want to see you exceed it isn't tough to find help if you notice yourself falling behind. On campus eating is spread throughout the centralized campus. Though our sports teams and Greek community may not be the biggest there are plenty of student run organizations to take advantage of this pearl of an upper peninsula town that is Marquette. intramural sports and clubs allows for friendly competition while mountain biking, surfing, and climbing clubs allow you to explore the natural beauty of this place. Dorm life isn't the most luxury but they are building brand new dorms and there is plenty of off campus houses and apartments available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my Orientation there I found it quite comfortable to find the classes I would be taking this fall and I was satisfied to see that all my classes are really close together and I don't have to worry about travelling to far to get to my classes. The campus is beautiful and feels homey as well as most of the students going there to achieve there goals and get there dream job!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

8/10 overall rating. Northern is it's own little world, we are nestled in the heart of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There is beautiful scenery for camping, hiking, exploring, and various outdoor activities. Hammocking is a staple on campus and off, Presque Isle park is a regular hangout place for students and citizens alike. Lake Superior can be seen from almost all of the facilities on campus like the second and third floors of John X. Jamrich Hall, Forest Roberts Theatre, and the fine arts building. Northern is unique and a wonderful place to live. There isn't a day in the winter where you don't see a Stormy Kromer hat and flannel being worn by some over polite Yooper. The professors and TA's of campus and almost always helpful, sincere, and caring. The classroom sizes usually range from lectures of 150 or labs of 10-15 people, and everything in between. Financial Aid, Housing and Residence Life, and the Registrars Office are all accommodating and honest. Everyone is accepted here because everyone is mostly judgement free and easy going. I love living and going to college here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it and I'm so excited to be going there beginning fall semester. The people are amazing, the food is good, and there is a never ending list of things to do. There's something for everyone and I'm excited to meet new people with new ideas and experiences. And NMU offers me that opportunity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Plunging into a frigid Lake Superior in November will momentarily distract anyone from his or her daily stresses. At Northern Michigan University, you will never be at a loss or alone when you are trying to figure out how to boost your spirits and take a breather from the daily grind. Experiences similar to that ice cold moment in Lake Superior, will be one of many that stick with you from your time at NMU. If you want to jump in an ice cold lake one minute but find a tranquil place to study the next minute, you will not only be successful but you will have a new friend laughing and studying right alongside you. And when you aren’t happily lost on an adventure with a friend or studying next to a waterfall, you will be throwing on your Wildcat gear and hiking down to the Berry Events Center to cheer on the hockey team. Northern Michigan University boosts students’ spirits by creating an environment which encourages academic success, mental and physical well-being, and comradery among all students. In regard to academics, students will be challenged yet have the resources to excel. Student’s strong mental and physical health is supported by on-campus counselors and clubs. Comradery among students is attainable and exciting due to the strong sense of community that the campus and dorms strive to achieve. The benefits of NMU are endless; however, one should not be naive and expect NMU to be flawless. The winters that far north are not for the faint of heart but if you can find a way to embrace the negative temperatures you will find yourself in a snowball fight with your suite-mates. Additionally, if you are not a Packer or Lions fan you may find yourself holding your own as you shout at the tiny dorm TV on those Sunday fall afternoons. In all seriousness, NMU is an inviting university that will challenge you and expose you to new opportunities, like jumping in Lake Superior in the middle of November.

Wonderful place to start my future. Everyone was very helpful during my campus visit. I wasn't sure what to expect being 8 hours away from home, but this college has so many opportunities. I love the esthetician department the most. I am excited to meet new people and have fun learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern should be investing their money into their professors, not remodeling. Tuition has gone up substantially, and it seems the increase is funding all of these new 'on campus housing', even though enrollment is down. I know a teacher at NMU who is also on welfare. Absolutely appalled. Will never donate to NMU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Northern Michigan University is that I think it is one of the best colleges a student can go to. We have the 2nd lowest public tuition in the state of Michigan, our class sizes are small so teachers can help students learn better and we even have our own LTE network that lets you connect to the college network without being on campus. There is so much I could describe out NMU, I could probably write a book about NMU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The beauty of Marquette is reflected within this university. The close knit majors allow you to make life long friends and develop relationships with your professors. My program is the best because of the people. The professors at Northern are there solely for you and your continued education. I love the atmosphere that is created during the first week of classes. They are in the process of updating some dorm rooms and buildings that are taking the overall look of the university up a notch. The tuition unfortunately has gone up which may be the biggest con of attending there right now. I'm excited to reflect back on my experience and Northern and encourage others to go there and not just because it's close to home, but because it's going to be the best years of your life.
