What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
A friendly, fun environment. The School is really involved with the Community and vise verse. A great size and good pricing, I'm paying the same or less than I would have to go to some of my in-state School
Kaitlin from Skokie, IL
Northern is a wonderful school if you like the great outdoors! Class sizes are relatively small and the school is very affordable. There are many activities for students to enjoy both on and off campus!
