Northern Michigan University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (11)
Northern Michigan University is located in the beautiful city of Marquette, MI. This, in my opinion, is the best part of the school. Located on the south shores of Lake Superior, there are endless trails and beaches to find an adventure to offset the hectic life of a student. The people of this area are nice. The city of Marquette is amazing, and so is the whole UP. There are a lot of activities to do outside and that attracts a cool crowd. Tuition is cheap, but they keep raising it significantly to pay for all of the new dorms,even though enrollment is down. Also, They could 100% pay their professors more. I had a professor who had to go on welfare to get by on what she was making at the school. Not okay.
Northern Michigan University is a nestled in the north of Michigan where at first you might not expect to find such a unique school. NMU is very supportive of its students and their endeavors. My program was in international studies with a minor in anthropology. The staff are wholeheartedly dedicated to helping shape your goals into a reality while pursuing a degree. I recommend visiting NMU and considering it as an option for your education as it is a world apart from what you might expect.
You get out of it what you put in, but its a really good school with great teachers. It is also in a beautiful location. and has a great hockey team
It's a good school for people who like smaller towns and it's provides a good education. Not as well known outside of Michigan. Good clubs and sports. Friendly people.
Northern Michigan University offered me the opportunities to not only pursue my career goals, but it also helped me grow as a person. Coming from a small town I wanted the real world college experience, but without the overwhelming masses. My experiences at NMU is something I would never change, and if given a second chance, would do the exact same thing.
WILDCATS!!!! Seriously though it is a good school, but you will only get out of it what you put into it. Also I could not be in a cooler more beautiful place.
Great school with small class sizes in one of the most beautiful cities in the country.
NMU is a great school. Most of the professors are down to earth. The location is great for anybody who enjoys doing things outdoors in all types of weather. It's pretty chill. Very easy to make friends in your classes.
When I was looking for a college to attend, I was looking more than just an education, I was looking for a real life experience. Northern Michigan University and the city of Marquette made this possible. Not only did I learn a lot, I was able to get out of the classroom and experience a wilderness I never before had seen. The extra coricular activities were a major highlight of attending NMU.
You'll be hard pressed to find a more beautiful campus and city than northern Michigan and Marquette. Right on Lake Superior the summers are amazing and the area surrounded by natural beauty. If you love winter or can handle the long harsh ones here you'll do great. Besides the setting the classes and teachers are also great. NMU is a relatively small University so class sizes are small and it is easy to get to know your professors who are usually very approachable. I had a great time and learned a lot at NMU and would recommend it to anyone who asked.
