This is my HONEST opinion of NU…no sugar coating at all. I transferred to NU a couple years ago. NU is good and bad in different categories. When it comes down to education, Northwood is one of the best. They provide you with detailed classes and real life experiences. Most professors are kind and willing to help during their office hours. Other professors are extremely rude and could care less about you and just want to get through the term (there are only a select few of these). I do have trouble with professors here and there when trying to e-mail them. Sometimes they won't e-mail you back until it's too late if they even get back to you at all. Small class sizes help out. I have heard from numerous faculty and graduate students that employers love students from NU. NU has a TON of connections for jobs. The acamademic advisors here are terrible. They are always "busy" which actually means they are really lazy or always out to lunch. Very crabby as well. Financial aid is hard to come by, but that's because of the current economy. More and more students are finding their funding getting cut. NU is expensive but most students don't really know why. When you attend NU, you are fully covered in health insurance. They are continueously refreshing or building new buildings on campus. They have everything paid off in full.

The social life here is so terrible. If you're not in the Greek life or an athlete don't even come here! You will not fit in no matter how cool you are. There are parties all the time here, but like others have said, it's either Greek only or just athletes getting together. Men's sports and frat boys DO NOT get along. NU's sports department is growing and in the past hasn't been very good but all the programs are rebuilding and some have had great success (women's basketball, men's baseball). There are a number of intermural sports like flag football, co-ed volleyball, and dodgeball. The workout facilities are pretty nice as well. They have a main exercise room in the lower level of the Hach and a heavy weight room (mainly for the athletes)upstairs in the Bennett Center. The campus isn't very big but it works out during the winter when there is a ton of snow and it's redicoulously cold out…you don't have to walk as far. The dorms here are very old style and are pretty small (4 students to one full bathroom). Midland as a city is alright. They have Dow Diamond for the Loons baseball team which is pretty fun to go watch. They also have a nice downtown with a couple nice bars. Dow Chemical and Dow Corning are also in Midland and they are always looking for interns from NU and Delta.
