Northern Michigan University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Grace

Someone who can't deal with cold weather or finds shopping and high fashion very important.

Holly

I don't feel that any person should not attend school. I think a person needs to have somewhat clear cut goals before entering school and whether it is just to gain a better perspective on an area of study or high career pursuits. I also think that a person needs to have a respect for the intuition for which they are attending and realize that while higher education is a privilege it is not a right and needs to be respected.

Amanda

The person who cant stand the outdoors. Marquette is such a beautiful city! If you dont like to watch the leaves change, play in the snow, or just our planet in its most natural state then NMU is not right for you. The town itself is also fun and small. There are activites to do there as well. But, if you are used to a large city this can be a cultre shock!

Ciera

You shouldn't really attend this school if you're used to a really busy, large city where there are concerts and cultural events every night, unless you are looking for a change of pace.

I would never tell anyone that I didn't think was capable not to attend Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan. It is a very diverse school with groups for everyone The only kind of person that I think should attend this school is something that is not going to take going to class serious. I think anyone who is capable to be accepted is fit, only if they try. I see different people everyday and within a few minutes of getting to know them, you see there sucess rate.

Northern Michigan University offers a variety of great opportunities for most students wishing to gain an excellent education and meet friendly, interesting people.
