At Northern, we know that value is about more than the sticker price - and you want to buy more than a fancy piece of paper.

Northern's value is our comprehensive programming, successful students, and partnerships with employers and the community.  Our graduates go on to earn 50% more a year after graduation than graduates of all four-year colleges in Montana. We care about more than classes and homework; we also want you to have FUN!

Our activities include on-campus concerts and comedian performances, intramural sports, open gyms, disc golf, and dances.  We also have our own bowling alley and fitness center at the Student Union Building, and numerous other campus activities that make college life enjoyable!

The campus is a 20-minute drive from trails, fishing, hiking and camping in America's largest county park, Hill County's Beaver Creek Park. Havre is just 30 miles from the Canadian border. That proximity allows for a flow of culture and access to many nearby attractions. Affectionately referred to as the Crown Jewel of the Continent, Glacier National Park is a 3-hour drive from campus.
