Northwestern Michigan College is a great community college. I actually think I received a better education and had better professors here than I did at a University I attended years ago. There Medical programs in general are very good. The classes for the medical programs such as Anatomy and Physiology, math, and chemistry are tough but after passing them with flying colors ( because I basically dedicated my life to school), I realized how much I learned because of how focused and dedicated I had to be to pass them. The professors are very well educated and take the time to really let the students grasp the material in the courses. You can tell the professors enjoy their jobs and enjoy watching students learn the material. I would recommend NMC (Northwestern Michigan College) to anyone wanting to pursue an education in Traverse City, Michigan. Another perk is living in Traverse City as well. Sooo beautiful!

I am currently attending Northwestern Michigan College. The facilities are excellent along with the campus. Compared to big universities the campus main Campus which I attend is very small but also very beautiful. Northwestern Michigan College technically has four campuses: the main campus, the Maritime Academy, its campus where it holds all its trades and the University Center. I have visited all of them and was very impressed. Along with their excellent facilities it has great faculty and staff to match. Just about every professor will help you if your struggling and we have three different tutoring centers if you need more guidance.
What I really love about Northwestern Michigan College is how caring the teachers are. I myself someday want to become a teacher so when I see a helpful and compassionate teacher I take notice. Since NMC is a smaller college most all of the teachers get to know there students and will not move on in class till they know each student is understanding the material, this is something you do not typically see at the college level. NMC also offers so many opportunities to seek out tutoring and help if you are struggling. Teachers and staff really want to see you succeed and that to me is priceless.
