Although Northwood may not be for everybody, it still has its ups and downs.

The good thing about Northwood so far is that the faculty and staff have your best interest at heart (for the most part). Most are always willing to help you with any of your academic endeavors. They are even willing to let you evaluate them at the end of the term. Nonetheless, you still recieve a quality business education that will make you well-rounded in the business world. The other good thing about Northwood is that you have many options from housing to meal plans. If you decide not to stay on campus, there are many apartment complexes in Midland that are actually cheaper than room and board cost at the university. Still, for a private school, Northwood is relatively cheap.

Northwood comes with its problems, though. First, it is easy to get bored around here. As nice as Midland is, it can also be just as boring (and somewhat racist). The students at Northwood can vary widely. While some people here are cool to be around, others come off as unapproachable, stuck-up, spoiled, or straight-up a**holes. At times, it'll feel like their is some racial tension here. For being a small school (2,000 students) drama isn't too hard to find. As for the food, it's just hard to eat most days, and it's barely worth the cost.

Like I said before, Northwood is not for everybody. If you're looking for a college that can distract you easily or make you feel like the man on campus, Northwood might not be that place. For all it's negatives, Northwood is still affordable, and what you will learn is worth the price.
