“I am very pleased with my experience at Northern
and would do it all over if I had to make that important decision once again. The
best part of it all was that I didn’t have to move away to further my education
“When I first came to Northern, I wasn’t sure what
I wanted to do so I started out in generals and tried a lot of different classes.
I tried a business class and really liked it. The Business teachers have been the
best, they learn your name and get to know you. Plus they are all very approachable
if you have questions or need extra help. I like the small campus and think that
it’s really neat that these professors remember you.”
"My experience at MSU-Northern not only led me into
an exciting, long term career, it also ensured I was well prepared. The up-to-date
knowledge and personal experience of the professors, as well as their commitment
to our success, ensured that I was able to be competitive in a national professional
career field. I am currently a civilian Supervisory Contracting Officer with the
Department of the Navy, am responsible for multi-million dollar contracts, and have
the opportunity to work just about anywhere in the country, or overseas. I am grateful
not only for my education, but for the opportunities that I have been provided,
due in large part to the Business Department of MSU-Northern."
