Most Helpful Review for Northern Michigan University

The teachers are so helpful. They will come in early or stay late in their office if you can't make their hours. When you ask a question they do their best to answer it. I even had teachers who would look it up and the answer it the next class. Some teachers even remember all their students names and faces, even in the 300+ lectures. The class sizes are perfect. They're just small enough that you still can get that one on one help unlike at huge colleges. The teachers do a great job keeping students attentions, like a chemistry...

    Professor to student ratios are small, and it's easy to get help. The atmosphere at NMU is great and friendly. The campus is believe and close to the lake.

    I first stepped foot on campus during my tour and immediately felt like I was home. The more I learned, the more I loved it! And Northern Naturally is more than a slogan, it's a way of life up there.

    A beautiful, student involved campus. Class are challenging yet fun, and there's always something to do. Marquette is modern, yet with a rustic feeling; a place you can call home.

    The area around NMU is one of the most beautiful landscapes of any college town. The staff is extremely friendly and more personalized for you, allowing lots of time for one-on-one study sessions with the professor. It does get cold though, and there are long winters in the Upper Peninsula.
