Northern State University Reviews
Review Northern State University
Northern State University is above and beyond what I expected. The professors take the time to get to know your interests and goals and give advice on how to achieve your goals. The campus is safe and very nice. Northern State University has that "personal touch." The food is very good and there are plenty of activities to take part in. Being a member of the track and field team has been a positive experience, as well. I like seeing that Northern State University welcomes all races/nationalities. I would recommend Northern State University to anyone who wants to attend a quality institution!
I attended Northern State University for my Undergraduate Degree. I studied business, was a double major in Finance and Economics, minored in Accounting, and graduated with Honors. As with any college, there are good professors and not-so-good professors. The key to my success at NSU was networking, creating connections with advisors, department heads, students ahead of me, and professors. By understanding the system and your choices to customize - it was a lot easier to get set up with internship credits and independent studies. A few of my favorite contacts are no longer with the university or retired, but I have had a very good impression from Professor Barclay - who teaches marketing, I believe.
Fan support is not always the best, but when the students get together for homecoming the school pride really shines. Everyone on campus is very friendly and when future students visit campus everyone takes time out of their day to show them around. Our athletic facility (the Barnett Center) was recently updated and is made to accommodate everyone's needs.
