Northwestern Michigan College Reviews
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 attend NMC as a dual-enrolled high school student. They seem to have lots of academic support, and it's a comfortable small campus where you can get to know your professors easily. You can easily walk anywhere on the main campus, and there are plenty of quiet places to study, whether it be in the fresh outdoors (there's lots of greenery), student enclaves, or the library. Being in northern Michigan, there isn't much diversity, but Traverse City is a neat place to explore-- there are lots of cool restaurants and shops downtown, and you can taste different types of beer, wine, and more from local breweries and the like.
The classes here are WAY too easy - unless you like that kind of thing; but I like to be challenged, and to feel like I can go out into the world and succeed.The Registrar/Billing office is the worst - they very clearly don't care to be there. The campus is super tiny, with not much going on. I absolutely love my advisor and the Psych department - I felt like they really looked out for their students - helped get internships, jobs/recommendations, accommodating - just super open and communicated well with students.If you're looking for a diverse school, aside from the LGBTQ community on campus, you're looking at the wrong school to attend. While there is a good mix of culture in the area, if you're skin-tone is anything but 'white,' you will stick out like a sore thumb here.
