Northern State University Reviews
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!
Northern State has a very diverse campus. There are many students from other countries, and Northern is always great about welcoming them to the states! The academic advisors that you work with are absolutely great!
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.
