What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
I love Northern Michigan University. The campus is beautiful, and right near the great Lake Superior! The professors are always willing to help you, they have ample office hours where you can talk to the professor one-on-one.
Cindy from Delano, MN
NMU is a rather small, yet comfortable campus. It appeals to those who enjoy outdoors and athletics, as well as those that prefer shopping, clubs, and other city-like things. The campus has lots and lots of physical resources as well as a staff that will do anything they can to make your college experience the best it can be.
