Northland College Reviews
Review Northland College
Northland College is great for anyone pursuing environmental studies, outdoor education majors, and anything to do with the humanities. Everyone on campus is very accepting of whoever you are as a person, as long as you are a nice person. Professors are on first name bases with all students and always try to include everyone's thoughts. If you're looking for a more personal feel to the college experience, Northland College is the way to go!
Northland is a great school to start thinking differently. Since coming to Northland my social skills, ability to understand people, and understanding of social constructs has improved drastically. And although I'm a Sustainable Community Development major with a duo minor in biology and geology, my overall knowledge of religion, sociology, and psychology has improved just as much. Northlands environmental focus to all the majors are outstanding, because as science has come to show us we have to change the ways we live if we wish to continue as a species. Northland's campus life is also outstanding, the small student population makes great for a family feel community. The class sizes are small and 90% of my professors I've had are very approachable and seek to form relationships with you at an individual level. This makes attending classes, listening, and striving for success that much easier.
Northland is a wonderful small school school and the connections with professors are very one on one. My class sizes are typically average around 20 students and professors have easily accessible through office hours and email. Northland is heavily environmentally focused with exceptional field programs. The student body is heavily involved in sustainability programs, student government, and athletics. Northland also has many connections with international study programs as well as the facts that is a member of the Ecoleague that alows students to transfer within a system of around 10 private schools for the blanket tuition. I would definitely choose my school again because they provide so many opportunities and connections all within a tight knit academic community.
