WHAT I LIKED

I liked how interactive everyone was, and how much help all of the counselors were in helping me get on my desired path.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing that I didn't like was that for transfer students there is only one date to go to a physical orientation which I am unable to attend due to working and moving

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

It's a smaller campus and everything is within walking distance. Has a great community and supports everyone that goes there the best that they can.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Pre-medical degree students don't get a lot of advising help and it all leans on you to prepare yourself correctly.

WHAT I LIKED

Northern Michigan University was one of my two choices for college. I decided to choose Northern because my sister was still going there, and my grandparents were both retired professors from Northern. The campus is beautiful, and the community in Marquette makes going to school really fun. I have had the opportunity to participate in many events put on in the community, and Marquette now feels like a second home.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The amount of snow we get is a little crazy sometimes. Also, Northern is struggling with providing a lot of resources for mental health to all students.
