Academics: Northland College academics are alright. The professors are very personal, they take the time to get to know and understand their students. They build on their curriculum, trying to create as many connections with every day life as much as possible. On the other hand the negative aspect of attending a small school is the lack of diversity in teaching styles. If the professor of physics does not fit your teaching style, you better find a way to make it work because there is only one professor of physics at Northland College.Although, the professors are hit or miss the college offers free tutoring. The tutors are willing to work around your schedule if you have work or athletics that interferes with their tutoring hours. Most professors tend to keep an open door policy, to willingly assist you whenever you may need assistance.

Academics: I would argue the biology program is a very unique and hands on learning experience to be found. Both summers I have acquired internships, of which the biology department staff have assisted in finding and applying for. The program gives you an all around learning experience to connect as many topics as possible to open a plethora of job fields. The staff work towards giving you unique learning and hands on opportunities to make you desirable for graduate school and job field. I couldn't ask for a better learning experience.

Academics: If you are willing to push yourself and the do the best of your abilities you will receive a great education. However, you can do okay with just skating by too... If you attend Northland, put your best foot forward and work hard. It will most definitely pay off. The faculty are amazing. We often hang out with them outside of class and eat dinner at their houses on special occasions. Very cool.
