Northland College Reviews
I love Northland College because of the outdoor aspect. I love being so close to nature and the amount of people here who also love nature. Everyone here obviously cares about the environment. Also Northland is such a welcoming environment, walking to class you can always count on someone stopping to say hello!
I'm currently a senior. College visits are the best ways to see if the college is a fit for you. Northland College was one of my top choices. They had an admitted student overnight stay. At first, I thought this college was so sweet that they're willing to pick us students up for the college visit. I live in Saint Paul, MN. Which is pretty far from Northland College. Northland College was one my top choice because they're an environmental college, which is what I'm planning to major in. However, when I went to visit, my experience wasn't as good as I wanted it to be. The host I was with was very different from me. She wasn't big into sports, and the college wasn't big into sports neither. The campus life seemed really dead, and everyone just did their own things. The student population was very small, but since it was smaller than other schools, I was hoping for everyone to come together, and do fun activities together. It turned out to be very quiet, and nonactive campus.
My biggest concern was the safety at this school. When a friend of mine's life was threatened by another student, administration did not take the threats seriously until they found weapons in the dorm room. Also when cuts are being made to the school (which happens a lot) administration targets full learning programs, professors and classes instead of extracurricular activities.
