4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The only issue I have with campus strictness would probably be open dorm hours, but everything else is great.

Computers: At the beginning of the year the wifi connection was being worked on and access was limited which made it difficult when access would cut out in the middle of an online quiz. But they have improved allot since then.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are a few restaurants that are open late but it would be nice if there were some more that were open late within walking distance.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really good restaurants in the area you just need to know where to look.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: You here some stories about people using drugs or alcohol but most of the student body is great about avoiding any usage.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Phillips rooms are newer and nicer, but the suite format makes it hard for people to study in there rooms due to the noise.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There aren't many locations that are open later than 8 p.m. It is a nice city with great transportation and the city is bike friendly. It would be nice if there were locations closer to the school that were open 24 hrs.

Campus Housing: Can be difficult to get alone time, food can be somewhat of a downer.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's a small school, therefore diversity can be hard to find.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great professors, God centered, great chapel time! Extra curricular activities are booming!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They have a decent amount of choices it just can get pricey with it being downtown.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It definitely can get cold in the winter time! But in the summer it's absolutely beautiful!!

Transportation: Transportation is easy and convenient. Minneapolis has buses, taxis, light-rail, biking lanes, and personal vehicle opportunities. Costs vary by type of transportation and distance traveled. but I think the costs are fair.

For long-distance travel there are three methods other than personally owned vehicles. These three are: International Airport, Amtrak Trains, and bus services like Greyhound.

Majors: I am a Secondary Social Studies Education Major and believe the program is solid. I would select it again because it has an approximate placement rate over 70% of its graduates, prepares each of us for the real world classroom, and does a variety of assessments in an ongoing manner that continuously monitors progress towards teaching licensure.

My goals are simple - graduate, become a full-time Social Studies teacher in a Middle-School, and teach for as many years as health and job available exist.

Jobs in Education are always a challenge so I do have the concern of a position upon graduation, but due to the quality of the program at NCU and their placement history, this is not as big a potential problem as it might otherwise be for finding work.

Majors: The specific Education Program I am enrolled in is a high speed and full-time process. Once accepted into the Education Department the student is assigned to a different school in the community each semester with a cooperating teacher. During the assignment the student does lesson planning, test proctoring, teaching, and all other aspects of the full-time teacher. The hands-on environment makes it possible to learn what the profession is really like from the inside, and because each semester is in a different school, the student also gets to see his/her field (Social Studies for me) presented in different ways to students from various communities. A very attractive aspect of this program is that almost seven of ten students obtain work in the school they did their final student teaching semester. All of this is combined with the academic work in Teaching Foundations, Lesson Planning, and course specific classes - American History, Geography, Political Science, etc. I do enjoy the program and the professors teaching and guiding us through the program. While structured tightly, and challenging often, it remains an enjoyable and pleasant environment to learn the teaching profession.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Twin Cities Minnesota has cultural, historical, sports, theater, and political activities for ever enjoyment.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Very little exists in the immediate vicinity of the campus, but working outward a few blocks and more opens up many possibilities.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security is well-trained, available and friendly. Health facility non-existent - campus is one block from a Level 1 trauma center so great care easily available.
