Northwestern Michigan College Reviews
Northwestern Michigan College is an excellent college to start your college career. I am 51 years old and just started in 2018, this is my first time attending college and I am glad I chose Northwestern. The Professors are amazing, always available, and more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure you understand what you need to do. The Academic Success coaches are always there to lend a helping hand. Everyone here is just wonderful, kind, and helpful. I love my college!
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!
Although I have officially started attending, I have visited the campus and taken an online class for NMC. I enjoyed both! The atmosphere is great, the staff and professors are nice and helpful. Finally, I felt like I belonged. Even though I wasn't even a student yet, NMC made me feel like I was one and that I was welcomed. That's what I look for in a college and I am glad to have that at NMC.
