Okay When Available – When available the computers, if working, are slow to start up but once you get going will be okay. They are usually crowded around certain times such as lunch and afternoons. The printing is also limited as there aren't many places to print on campus and when someone has a lot to print, you could be waiting quite a while. The printers are usually down for maintenance which can be a pain when there's only one printer in the entire library. The wifi is honestly out of date and if you have an iPod or laptop, the wifi is impossible to get into even in the library! I find this extremely frustrating especially when the computers are a.) all tied up and b.) not working properly.

D1 is where it's at! I love going to the hockey games. Our athletes are trained by some of the top notch coaches in the state. We go to MAAC and NCAA in all sports and we have club sports for those who may not be as serious as the D1 but they have similar perks and we have intramural sports and chances to start your own sport or club. There were rumors that a Quidditch club might start and someone started a club called Women Rock, all about equality for women. It's pretty cool.

Facilities at NU are great! They are renovated, clean, and have great hours for the students. The gym is free to all students and includes free weights, machines, and class such as Zumba and Pilates. The student center is where all the students hang out before, between, and after classes. You can play pool, ping pong or grab a coffee and watch one of the many flat screen TVs.
