Decent academics, great profs, and a gorgeous setting. If you love the outdoors and can hack winter, this place can't be beat.

I loved my experience at NMU, I love the outdoors and this is a great place to be outside, weather that is studying of hiking with friends nothing beats the Northern experience. The only drawback is that my degree Mechanical Engineering Technology needs an updated building and class rooms. I think it would draw in a lot more students because the teachers are the best in the world but we lace the resources.
