Being a part of the Superior Connections program has given me so many opportunities. Our circumnavigation of Lake Superior for May term was a very powerful experience.
I chose Northland because environmental education is very important to me. I think everyone should have a chance to experience an education that supports and involves environmental issues.
I don't feel badly about paying to go to school when my college makes such great efforts to be environmentally friendly.
Northland College teaches you how to love the environment and have fun doing so!
I am big into gardening and will be taking part in Growing Connections…I can’t wait to go to Northland and take advantage of all the opportunities it as to offer!
As a student, it’s rewarding to see within a few years of being at Northland College how tangible the results are. This is one of the places where you feel like you can actually make a difference.
My professors were the most helpful in preparing me for my future career. They’ve gave me great connections in the community, were great advisors, helped me learn about different projects and overall, gave me a great education. In the future, I’d like to get involved more with agriculture and maybe start my own business and Northland’s really prepared me to do that.
I'm just really into nature and I like the fact that this college finds the environment to be important with any kind of major.
What separates Northland from other schools is that feeling of ' I'm home'. I cannot wait to join the Northland family!
Northland prepared me to effectively and meaningfully contribute to the world around me. My studies here gave me a solid background in environmental issues and prepared me to lead by example for a more sustainable future.
I can't wait to come to Northland, I'm pretty sure, if I ever have free time, when I'm not doing homework, I'm going to hit up every bike trail!
I chose to come to Northland because it's a small school with great professors. They are always there to give extra help in the classroom.
I wanted an education that provided me with an environmental emphasis as well as a pre-vet degree. Coming from a big city, I was looking to experience a small school and town and have found both at Northland.
This may sound cliché, but I love everything about Northland. I didn’t want a big school with huge classrooms and I knew I would have more opportunities at a smaller school. Northland is a great learning environment because it’s so experiential.
I came to Northland College for the small town atmosphere and the opportunity to play two varsity sports. And the students here are awesome! It's a small enough school where everybody knows everybody.
I know I'm looking for a campus with a small student body and student to teacher ratio, and knew that Northland could provide that. I visited and immediately got a sense that the student body is more like a tight-knit community than just a group of people, which greatly appeals to me.
I am interested in Northland because it has a majority of the subjects I am interested in, it's in my home-state, and it seems to have a wonderful "green" connection!
Northland students are a close-knit family but we're also carefree, spontaneous, and very energetic.
