The college experience at Northern Michigan university can vary depending on the person. Northern, is in the heart of the upper penisula's largest city Marquette. The city of Marquette is very beautiful, scenic, and peaceful. Although, the city doesnt have a large mall like most cities, it makes up for that with its outdoor activities like hiking Sugarloaf or hogsback mountains. Skiing down Marquette mountain, going to the beach, plus many other hiking trails and things to do.

Now to the University, Northern will honestly accept anyone, what many fail to understand is that just because they accept everybody doesnt mean that the school will be easy. The course work at northern is very challenging and sometimes can be annoying. Its not to hard though; but you will get your moneys worth. The professors are easy to get ahold of and because of the small class sizes alot of them will remember you by name. Another great thing northern has to offer is All subject tutoring. Every class you can think of has a tutor so if you need extra help you can always go to the tutoring center. Northern also has a writing center and other places that can help you succeed in your academic career.

As far as the social life goes at Northern, it is what you make it. People here are extremely friendly, nice and outgoing. Although, if your not a social person and you dont talk to people DONT PLAN ON HAVING A GOOD TIME HERE. Northern is very social. There are alot of good parties, and for those that dont like to party dont worry there are alot of people that just hang out in the dorms, either playing videogames, watching a movie or just relax and have a good conversation.

Overall this school is a really good school in my opinion but i know many people that dont like it, just like i know many people that love it. It is what you make it. Warning, make sure you focus on academics because alot of people get here and have a lot of fun and end up dropping out because they didnt focus on their grades. Academics first, then social afterwards.
