    I am an Alumni of Northwood University and after being out of school for awhile, I look back and realize how great my education and time was there. I have realized that the real world skills that I learned at Northwood have translated into real life. I utilize what I learned in business and finances every day and I'm not sure I would have got that elsewhere. I talk to a lot my friends about things I learned in school and they did not receive some of the same skill sets. I loved the stronger focus on my major from day one. If you are interested in business, Northwood is the place to go. The teachers were former business owners, accountants, etc. so they had real world experiences they could share and not just educators their whole live.

    Its a smaller school which I prefer and the classes were not in auditoriums as I have heard from friends who went to bigger schools. You got to know your professors and they got to know you. Overall, i highly recommend Northwood!

    Northwood University has been everything I have hoped for and more. I have been involved with athletics, RSOs, Greek Life, and have gotten multiple internships throughout my time at NU. The professors really care and are easily accessible. They all have real life experience in what they are teaching, which always keeps the classes interesting. Midland is a nice, quaint, safe place to live. If you choose to go to Northwood, get involved because it will pay off in the end. It is a great networking school as well!
    I love Northwood so much! I will be a sophomore here this upcoming school year, and I love how every class I am taking applies to the Northwood Idea. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus, the professors actually care about you, and you're not just another number at a college. Your potential is amplified at Northwood, and I am so happy I chose to go here over Michigan State, SVSU, CMU, and Delta. Plus, Northwood offers pitch competitions where real investors pitch real money for student business ideas. The professor-student relationship is awesome. In fact, I went Frisbee golfing with one of my professors last semester! Northwood also prepares you very well for your career. I already have an internship due to the many job fairs Northwood offers, and I love it so much! I know I wouldn't have the same opportunities at other colleges.
