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!
Northland College is small for starters, so if you hate small towns and having nothing to do, especially in the winter, this is not the college for you. This college is great for those looking to major in STEM, but for the prospective students looking into the arts and humanities...the program is lackluster. Good music and party scene here, pretty much everyone smokes something or drinks, but everyone respects eachother.
I like the professors and the students. They are very friendly and accepting. The professors won't hesitate to help you if you ask. The admissions team is super friendly and they'll remember you even after you're a student. I'm not to happy with residential life though. My room mate never showed up and I received an email that seemed to be accusing me for having a room to myself. They gave me a list and told me to find a roommate or they'd make an assignment. Isn't that their job? Other than that I've really been enjoying this school.
