Great location. Marquette is a pleasant city with beautiful scenery.
The school focuses on teaching and learning, not on research.
I was in the computer/business program. The business school is great, but the technical side was poor. Many of the professors are way behind current advance technology.
NMU was a very friendly college when it came to the admissions process and for first time students. I found the staff to be helpful and inviting, something vital for freshman. The only downside I could see with NMU was its location: pretty far away for most people, and once you exited Marquette, there was nothing but land and small towns.
I would go back to NMU if I could, and I encourage anyone who loves the outdoor life to at least consider them. There are so many things to do from skiing in winter to swimming in the summer months.
