College Sophomore

Diversity: I am not totally sure but most people on campus are straight but I know some are gay/lesbian, and a lot of Asians that are on the international student program.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The dorms are very strict on some things like keeping the halls or bathrooms clean and sometimes the noise level down at night, but most of the time the RAs don't really do anything.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student life is good lots of space to hang out outside and do something like sand volleyball, throw the baseball around or football. Library is big, they have a zone so people can talk quietly and an upstairs that is all quiet and cant talk, and then they have rooms to work on group projects together or if you need some quiet by yourself.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is usually safe. There was once or twice this year that we have had a scare about someone getting raped but most of the time it is usually quiet around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: When I was trying to apply for financial aid it went okay and then I had to keep re doing it because either fasfa received it but I forgot to sign it or it never went through. But usually it goes pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are very important and big when the school plays any sport from football to volleyball and basketball. A lot of fans show up including the students and locals. School spirit is wonderful always cheering on the guys or girls. The facility is in great condition.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food on campus is sometimes good and sometimes not. There is a counter for like "home cooked" meals, pasta and Chinese counter, and then a counter for the other food like hamburgers, chicken patties, hotdogs, pizza, French fries. Most of the time the hamburger counter serves almost the same food a lot, and the "home cooked" meals most of the time are pretty good. They also have an ice cream machine and can put nuts, choc chips, sprinkles, caramel, and choc syrup on it. The dining goes to our meal plan and then our flex goes towards a coffee shop/ food business and a C-store that is on campus.

College Sophomore

Academics: I just switched majors this last semester so I don't really know what it is like yet.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a wide range of academics from pre med, early childhood teaching and secondary teaching, psychology, sociology, biology, coaching minors and endorsements and plenty more minors and majors. The professors are nice and most of them do care about your grades. Registration is pretty easy just fill out the registration form and housing. Workload most of the time is pretty easy, its usually just reading and then when midterms and semester testing come around than it gets a little harder. Study areas include library, student center, dorm, dorm lobby, mostly wherever someone would want to study.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is good. There are recreations like parks and places to camp. A lot of places to shop like the mall, target, Walmart, and other little family owned clothing stores. Plenty of cops around town and around campus. There are the activities that the high school and two colleges have that the students and locals can go to. Most of the time there is always something going on.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experience is good, professors help you out as you need and can go into their office or after class and talk to them. They all know your name so if they see you around campus they say hi. Class sizes are relatively small usually about 20 to 30 students, some of the general ed classes are a little bit bigger like my wellness and bio class that had to be a bigger room.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors and the staff care if you are in class or get a degree.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had a chance to be in my specific program yet because I just switched majors so this coming fall I will be starting my classes for psychology.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had one yet since I will only be a sophomore in college. Yes I do plan to get an internship. I do have concerns about if I can find one especially what I want to do with my psychology degree and being a case worker in a hospital or something like that.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is nice, and a lot of people get along with everyone

College Freshman

Greek Life: I have never heard of anything involving Greek Life.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It's very cold, but I knew that when I came to campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Generally stick with my meal plan on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of locations that close to campus. Availability, convenience, and cost speaking I would prefer to stay on campus throughout my four years.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not sure, not involved in that scene.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Enjoy all the local attractions and events to attend.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The only problem I truly encountered was excessive noise in the dorms.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The registration process is very easy, meeting with my adviser and planning my future takes less than 30 minutes. I have a good workload that will help me graduate in 4 years and the professors truly care about helping me get there with as much knowledge as possible. I generally like to study in the library with no distractions.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Cost for transportation is almost non-existent. By living on campus all buildings for classes are located within walking distance, very convenient.

4 College Student

Diversity: There isn't too much diversity here at Northern, but for the small amount there is people are pretty accepting.
