Northland Community & Technical College Reviews

118 reviews
All Categories
The price of this college does not match what you get in return. The location is horrible; a few restaurants and the same few bars provide the only reliable entertainment. The river walk is the only hiking available, and for anything else, you have to be prepared to go to Bemidji or beyond.

The food in the cafeteria is so-so and expensive. Technology is horribly outdated. And the town is truly a small midwest town; people aren't receptive to people of diverse backgrounds, so if you aren't from the midwest, you may find yourself feeling like a permanent outsider.

The closest place for any major activities is an hour away (Grand Forks). If you choose to come here, know that housing is tight, and unless you transfer, you are dedicating yourself to this place for a full two years.

The positives include that this town is super safe, clean, and quiet. But the lack of activities and closed minded nature of the community makes it ill suited for college-goers.

My experience at Northland Community and Technical College is phenomenal. The Nursing program is very hands-on and the professors are flexible. Learning a lot and having fun!
So far Nothland is a world different from UND where I spent 3 previous years. You don't feel like a number at Northland. It is incredible easy to communicate with you teachers and administrators. Your advisor and teachers actually remember your name! The facility is up to date with relevant technology. Parking is a breeze! Fellow students are friendly too. Tgis is a great place to lower your educstional cost and time while still getting cutting edge education and hands on relevant courses that translate into an immediate career after completing your specific degree. I highly recommend this college over UND.
