The class sizes are small, and allows students to get to know the professor and classmates. The small class sizes make it easier to get help from the professors as needed. They have many ways of communicating, and will go out of their way to help a student that needs help. The professors at Northwood University are dedicated to helping students learn and succeed in school. The comradery among the students and staff is amazing! I am a non-traditional, 28 year old college student that takes classes online through the Adult Degree Program and attends class on campus. I have never felt so welcome and a part of the Northwood University culture! It is amazing! They are very involved in sports, arts, politics, and student life, and are even more involved in volunteering and helping those that need it in the community and beyond. This campus has so much to offer to students! The housing options, the food, and facilities are great. Northwood University is in Midland; a community that has a lot to offer to students and is not far from other major cities such at Bay City and Saginaw and outdoor recreation up north or even along the bay. I had a good start at Delta College, and made the best life decision ever transferring to Northwood University. I hope potential high school and college students really consider Northwood University for the pursuit of their college degree!

Not the best. I have good friends who make my time enjoyable. The administration, especially the deans, don't listen to students very much and all the school cares about is the money at the end of the day. Some teachers are great, maybe 1-2 a semester. The others either don't know how to teach, or are so foreign you can't understand anything they say. You buy you're degree here, so don't expect to be an expert in your field when you leave here. If you're not going here for automotive, go somewhere else!

Before I came to this school I wish I had known that they had great individuals who were willing to sit down with me and help me plan my entire school schedule. Not only did they create this schedule, but they went through past courses I had taken, told me what I needed to take and what I didn't. They were more than willing to help me and answer any questions that I had, they were a wonderful help and just what I needed to plan my college education!
