Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Northern Michigan University is in Marquette, MI. Not only is NMU a good 4-year college, the town of Marquette is enough to win anyone over. All students will experience a small town atmosphere in the biggest city of the Upper Peninsula, but surrounded by a breathtaking view. This place has it all from hiking, biking, winter events, comedy nights, trivia, local festivals, great food, and small business shops. If the town does not win anyone over, the University has many great programs. The psychology department is expanding their research and programs every year. From when I started, NMU's psychology department started 2 new research labs and added a neuroscience focused track. They are in the works of starting an APA accredited PhD program and hiring new faculty with ambitious goals. Completing the Master's program at NMU, the Psychology department offers their graduate students graduate assistantships where they teach a lab section for different courses. These assistantships include tuition waivers and a stipend. There are also a lot of scholarship opportunities. This university is one of the least expensive 4-year universities in the country, and has a new LTE internet system to supply free internet for off campus students. Along with free internet, full-time students get a laptop and full-time helpdesk support. In 2016 - 2017, NMU rebranded and build a new facility and dorms with state of the art technology and equipment for classes. There is a starbucks right in the middle of the new facility, Jamrich, for before and after class caffeine intake. Overall, I enjoyed my time at NMU and only have great things to say. As all universities have their downsides, I feel NMU's are limited and worth the education you recieve. I would definitely give NMU a look while applying for schools.

This is a wonderful college. Small enough to feel like home and large enough to have everything you need.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2011

Overall I thought the school was awesome! Northern is well known for the nursing and education programs. In some of my classes we went on "field trips". One really cool experience was going to an indian reservation school! Another was working with students at camp in Big Bay. I did not have any negative experiences with the education program. It was very well organized and professors give you hands on experience within the schools and are very helpful.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Similar to any school, there are fantastic, supportive, engaging professors and some that are not so much so. At times, it seems communication leaves something to be desired between faculty, staff, etc., which can make it very challenging for students to have realistic expectations. The program itself is relatively new, and has some kinks to be worked out, although I am thankful the program is here, and that there is a decent network of business contacts. Once out of the program, most students choose to move elsewhere to find work, as this community does not produce a lot of employment opportunities in most fields (unless in healthcare, law, accounting). Best of luck in whatever school you choose!
