Most Helpful Review for Northern State University

I am learning everything I had hoped to as a college Freshman. The faculty here is not only more than qualified but because NSU is such a small campus, students here are more than just a number. Every professor genuinely cares about his/her students. All my professors knew me by name and said hello to me outside of class after a month of class. The professors at NSU have so much information to give you and are really excited to share it with you.

    NSU is small public liberal arts college in Aberdeen, SD. It has the only Center of Excellence in International Business. The campus is gorgeous and safe.

    Do not go there. Not enough classes offered and the classes get cancelled a lot because they are under-enrolled. The administration is dysfunctional, professors dress like bums and are not smart, and the students are very lazy.

    I have heard nothing but good things about Northern. I am going next week for a campus visit. I hope I find what I am looking for to go into history education, and to continue with band.

    Northern is a small school, good for students who do not want to be lost in the crowd. Class sizes are small, so professors learn who you are on a first name basis. There are also a lot of opportunities for studying abroad or undergraduate research across the country.

    I would give Northern a five out of five! I love it there so much, and it's nice because everything is at close range to you. I love how easy it is to get answers to your questions as well for things like financial aid.
