    Northern is a really great place for meeting new friends and most of the professors are really helpful. If you are having difficulty with a class all you have to do is ask or email a teacher for clarification or for them to look over something for you and they will be more than willing to help you succeed.

    Northern Michigan University is much more special than many know. This university houses the Olympic Education Center. I am an athlete with dreams of being an Olympic medalist and after visiting the facility, coaches, and athletes at NMU, I realize that the possibilities of what some people may call unrealistic dreams are actually quite possible. The coaches are very accomplished technicians and the athletes have intact moral principles that will make the fun not only fun, but safe. The athletes were also VERY welcoming along with the rest of the NMU staff. The location is definitely different from the city like environment I am used to in Miami. Much more quiet. Very tranquil. The nature in Marquette is absolutely beautiful. I had the opportunity to visit Lake Superior, which is not even a mile from the university and is definitely one of the most beautiful things i have EVER seen! So will I enjoy it? Of course!

    I love Northern! During the fall it is so pretty in the UP. Winters can be harsh but it's completely worth it. There's always something for you to do and you're never bored.
