Northland College Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


My school creates varies ways to help the students learn; teachers incorperate classroom lectures and labs with outdoor labs to help gain real world knowelegde which gives Northland students a competative edge when searching for jobs.


The best thing about Northland is how holistic its studies and its people are. The classes here are not just about all the fine details, though they are covered, but also how everything in this world ties together. We are tought on a global scale in just about all of our classes, and we always are asked to think of the big picture.


The best thing about Northland is the learning enviroment. Everyone there (teachers, students, and administration) wants you to understand what it is youre learning and why. Since it is such a small school teachers are willing to give students the attention they need to succeed in the class. Your fellow classmates are usually excited to be there and want to learn what the teachers is teaching which creates a motivated, positive atmoshere.


One of the best things about my school is how small it is and how at home you feel. Going to a smaller school has many benefits, and I really enjoy a smaller school because I don't feel as overwhelmed. Everyone knows who eachother is which is a neat, so it is always fun to try and figure out who the new people sitting across the lunchroom are. I absolutely love going to a small school. I wouldn't want it any other way.


The best thing about Northland is our environmental background. There are not many other schools that dedicate themselves to the environment like Northland. It's nice to know that while I'm here I'm not just getting an education but finding different ways to help the environment. We only get this one planet to live on, so we need to start doing a better job of taking care of it.


Northland is small enough that students are truly people to the professors, not numbers.


The small amount of students- it's easier to learn because class is more of a one-on-one type of situation with the professor


The best thing about Northland is the atmosphere. Being so close to Lake Superior, and having such a small college allows you to have a lot of experiences that you probably wouldn't have elsewhere. It's very relaxed and don't be suprised if you see people walking barefoot to all their classes.


The faculty and students. There is a great community here and everyone is so friendly. The faculty is laid-back, easy to talk to, readily available, and accomodating.


The fact that no one is judged. Students tend to be more liberal but do not oppose conservatives. You can be gay, straight, bi, whatever. No one questions you, no one wonders what you're problem is, they see past the general sterotypes. Everyone I have met have been fantastic people, good through and through. My friends always have my back, helping me wherever or whenever I need it, but also helping me grow as a person. They aren't trying to protect me from the world, but they are there for support. We are a close tight community.
