Overall Experience: I absolutely love Northern. I have met the greatest people and had the best experiences here. I couldn't imagine going to a different school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are better than others. Each one has a different personality. There are also some run-down ones and some nice ones, but the run-down ones actually feel more like home to me.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's not easy to walk into parties like it would be at a bigger school. That said, when you can find them, they're a lot of fun.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of nice places to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I know a lot of issues have had issues with parking, and the planning seems poor. Otherwise, NMU seems fairly average in terms of strictness.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I like the dining halls, but both the amount and the quality of the food gets worse towards the end of the semester. The on-campus resturaunts are good, but often expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I don't understand a lot of the finanial information still, but generally the school has been very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The closer you want to live to campus the more expensive it is. The farther away from campus the cheaper the house will be.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was pretty simple I got what I needed. it just took some time until I got it and waiting for it to apply to my bill.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Sometimes the food got repetitive and it might be a good idea to ask students what kind of foods that they would want. Otherwise there were good and bad days for food. You never knew what was going to be there. Need to keep the menu updated online so students know what the dining halls are serving that day.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You really get to know people when you live in the dorms. It helps you to make friends and to get involved in things that go on around the dorms and on campus. The dorms are nice and you just share a bathroom with 3 other people. Some things that I did not like was that I took my housing survey for a roommate and the roommate I got did not have the same things that I was interested in at all and nothing matched we were the complete opposite, it was not a great fit. The cost was good and it was convenient to get to all my class.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many people go to games. We have the dome which is something other schools don't have. As a college athlete not many people go the games and even know where our field is.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many of the off campus houses are old homes. If you want a really nice place a apartment would be better

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly local restaurants and pizza joints will give students discounts. The pizza places will give discounts during hockey season.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It depends on what hall you live in and what RA you have.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got what I needed. Now I just need to get more scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's good food, but they serve a lot of the same stuff. The bad thing is that depending on what dorms you live in you might have to walk outside to get to them.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very close to campus. The only downfall is that there is old dorms and new dorms. Something unique to NMU is that in one of the dorm halls the Olympic athletes live with regular student.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is not easy to find, especially good locations. Prices are okay, but only if you are willing to stay at a poorly maintained apartment. The nicer ones are generally expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most of the parties equate to some physical and social harm to students, yet they are well attended because there is usually drug/alcohol accessibility to underage users and addicts. Some parties may not have harmful contents, but can still be unreasonably chaotic.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is pretty average. It involves chain restaurants, fast food, and private owned restaurants. A fair amount of diversity in a small town. The pubs are the most desirable.
