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

Do not pick a school based on price. I had the opportunity to go to many schools and I picked the cheapest one. I am now looking to transfer. Do not put a price tag on your dreams. Fight for what you want in life and don't let anyone try to hold you back.

What's unique about your campus?

The cost makes it affordable.

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

Find what you want to do in live or what you think you want and decide from there what school is right for you. Dont go just to play a sport if they dont have what you want or go for a girl friend because it usually ends up wasting a couple of semesters of your time and money.

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

There is not a lot of online courses to take. I would like to see more of them available at Northern State that is why I am doing my masters at DSU.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Some one that is worried more about the weather and how many people there are. A lot of people from big places with nice weather don't like to go there.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

For me, the school and the community really made me feel like they wanted me to succeed. THe school is so supportive that they will do anything in order to benefit the students.

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

When you first step on campus, you should feel right at home. You want to be some where where they want you to succeed. Decide if you want to be close to home or farther away because it makes a huge difference on how well you will do in school. Like the place that you will be living in because that will be where you will be spending most of your time. Like the food on campus because it really stinks if you don't like it. Find the college that fits you and what you are going to school for. Don't let your parents pick for you. Most of all, make the best out of college. They are some of the best years of your life!!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants smaller classrooms, caring teachers, low student-teacher ratio, and someone who likes a friendly campus and people.

Northern has a very small community feel, like we are all just one big family.

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

Research is the key to finding the best of anything. The internet is a good source for this research but when it comes down to it you have to go on college visits. On a college vist, one can see not only the campus but also the town. Different people have different preferences on how many people they want living in close proximity to them. A visit is also a good way to get to know how people will treat you once you get to college. There should be a friendly atmosphere to somewhere you might live in for four years. Bottom line is do some research and find whatever you like the most.

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

I wish I had known that I was going to attend this university earlier. It would have made planning easier.

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

It is a small school, which can be either good or bad. It often means small class sizes in select disciplines. There are still relatively large lecture classes, though.

NSU is very friendly school who makes everyone, of every race feel welcome and comfortable.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

NSU is very friendly school who makes everyone, of every race feel welcome and comfortable.

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

I would tell parents and/or students to definately find a college where they are comfortable. A campus shouldn't be so big that it is overwhelming, but should also be big enough to provide plently of opportunities and activities. To make the most of a college experience I would tell them to make as many friends as possible and just get out there and experience new things.

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

NSU is very sports oriented, but they only give money to the bigger sports, instead of the smaller sports who actually win state titles.
