3 College Junior

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity here on campus, but Northern is working pretty hard on fixing that. Just last year, the Black Student Union went down to Detroit and Chicago to recruit students from that area, which is pretty awesome!

4 College Junior

Diversity: Theres a lot of diversity on campus and everyone excepts each other. Its fun getting to meet others from different backgrounds and regions and learning about their lifestyles. And with over 300 student organizations, students are able to find a group that relates to their background, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation and race.
