    Enjoy the experience. It's not the biggest school but there are many opportunities and activities for you both on and off campus to have fun. It all depends on what you make of it.

    Be certain of your major! (That's kind of general though...) Had I planned to be a business guru this would have been the perfect college!!!!!!!!! They are the best at what they do! However, I was unsure of my major or what I wanted to be when I grew, thus racking up tons of debt and an Associate's degree. Honestly, I didn't learn anything useful that I did not already know from work experience. So - point is - if you want to be a business major and you want to be hugely successful - GO TO NORTHWOOD! If you just want a business degree to back you up working at a local bank branch - go to Delta and do the 3-in-one program! Save some cash!

    You really need to have great time-management and choose your friends right. College is not like high school, it on another level then high school. the reason you need time-management because your school work will pile up.

    Make friends as a freshman and join some kind of team or get into greek life it will make your stay much better. Don't take 8am classes, they are always terrible to get up for.

    Make the most of working with groups. Prior to transferring to Northwood I did not enjoy group projects. This is something that is a big focus at Northwood. It actually was helpful, because in most careers you have to work in teams, with a wide variety of people.
