It is calm in the dorms, but a few time it will get a little loud for a short period of time. In the night clubs outside campus, they're great with different people dance all kinds of songs from different cultures.

Being out of state I did everything over the phone and e-mail. I applied for financial aid online and if I ran into trouble I called my university and they helped. I suggest always calling your school and making sure you filled out everything correctly.

The nightlife at Northwood University is for those who are 21years old or older. There is one club that I know of that is 18year old and older. Even though you may be 21 or older you still need a car because the good clubs and bars are ten minutes away by car. A taxi would cost you almost $20.00 each way. The parties on campus are never really parties. Students sit around, some play games and of course there's music but it never feels like a real party.

There are two wings for dorms. The East wing is mostly freshmen and the West wing is mostly upperclassmen. The inside of the dorms are great. Three closets for two people, double sink, shower, study room, and a living room shared between the four people who live in the suite. The upperclassmen side however has nicer furniture in their suites. The only downfall is laundry cost $1.25 for washing and another $1.25 for drying. We already pay $10,000 for room and board they could include washing and drying machines.

Since Northwood University is a small college there are plenty of computers on the campus. There are enough computers between the library and the computer labs for regular students and students in the masters program. They are high speed and are uploaded with the latest software. They are easy to use and are always updated. They run perfect. Most if not all students have their own laptop and the WiFi connection is good more than half the time.

As always, it depends on the class and professor, but the classes are full of information according to the field but may not be distributed in the most traditional fashion such as lectures.
College Senior 2013-02-11T05:18:39Z
The dorms are extremely nice. They are appartment style with a common room, office room, bathroom, and large rooms with three closets per dorm (2 students) and the common room is shared with the suite (4 students).

Northwood is a great school for business students. However, if you are undecided on a major and may someday transfer to another school to earn a degree in a non-business field, Northwood is not the place to start out. Because the place you directly into business classes it is hard to transfer to any school other than business. Yet, like I said, if business is your area of interest the school is great and you are submerged into that world from day one.

Health & Safety:
I feel Northwood is a very safe campus. With on campus security roaming the campus basically 24/7. The health at Northwood is currently atleast a A grade. With the great gym in the student life building, and a variety of healthy foods in the food court.
College Sophomore 2013-01-18T16:27:50Z
There are mostly fast-food places such as tacobell and Wendys. But there are some restuarants and bars for the late night college students.

I just finished my first semestar at Northwood in West Palm Beach. Ill give you the break down of the nightlife and partys. First of all the campus is completely dead when it comes to parties. You can party in the dorm but the school is very small and most people live in apartments off campus. There are many nightclubs off the campus that look great. Theres 2 diffrents strips about 5 minutes away that is very popular every night of the week. The clubs are very exspensive so you need a lot of money to go. This isnt your typical University with frat partys. Most people complain about it being boring. West Palm is beautiful and the Academics are great here.

Nothwood University Is the Place to Be – The business degrees and programs at Northwoods is set apart from other schools because they are some of the best in the country. They are hands on and your experience at Northwood is more like being an intern for 4 years rather than a student. The social scenes are great because there are many on and off campus activities that the school hold. The West Palm Beach area is great for college students because there are many places to eat, shop, go to the beach, and hang out with friends. It is also a great place to find a job!

Excellent Technology at Northwood University – The computer labs are top notch. They provide many computers with the latest programs. They alsp provide Macs since it is a business school and a lot of the students have advertising classes and projects. The availability is also not an issue.

There are many different apartment complexes around Northwood University but they are very pricey considering it is West Palm Beach. Not many of the students live off campus on their own or with a roommate.

Play at Northwood University – The sports at Northwood University- West Palm Beach are a lot of fun. The athletes work hard on the field but they are also expected to have great performances in the classroom. The games are a lot of fun to attend and there are many different sports teams at Northwood University. A lot of the athletes are from all around the world so playing a sport here is a great way to meet people from different cultures.

Northwood University does not have a Greek Life. Our students consist of students and internationals and we are all viewed as just that.

Well Rounded Community for Students. The facilities are constantly being maintained and kept clean. Our athletic fields and arenas are always manicured to say the least. The dining center just received some renovations, however still resemble a highschool cafeteria. The library is beautiful on the outside, and the view is lovely on the inside as it hangs over the lake; however, the inside decor needs some modernization.

Humble Home & Strong Academia – Northwood University has a multitude of unique features to offer students. One, the school offers a 20:1 student, teacher ratio; therefore, as students, we are able to have a personal connectivity with our professors and receive much needed assistance at any given time.

Sunshine State – The Local weather here is always sunny out. Everyone gets really good tans when playing a sport or laying by the pool or beach. If it rains we always have a game room we can go to too play pool or table tennis. For the most part it is always sunny and beautiful!

Not That Many Drugs Are Here – Don't get me wrong there are drugs at any college. We don't have the crazy drugs we just have the typical one which is weed. Its college everyone drinks but we have to stay in our room and do it. Their is no peer pressure for drinking or weed. If you want to do it cool and if not no one is going to get mad at you. And the policy is enforced and if they see you with alcohol they will make you poor it out and warn you and if it happens again you get a ticket for it. But everyone follows the policy so we don't break the privileges that we have

Guys & Girls:
Could Not Ask for a Better School for Social Life – Everyone dresses like everyday students. No one judges you on what you wear and everyone is so friendly. Even when you walk by someone you do not know they say hi too you i was very shocked when i came here. I did not expect college to be such a nice and peaceful place. No one dresses trashy we dress the way we like and that is appropriate. Everyone likes to fish here so we all join together at nights and fish in the pond we have at school. The social life is awesome everyone gets along at school. The whole student life plays pool together or we all get together and go to the beach together. I would highly recommend this school to anyone. You also receieve the student teacher relationship you want here. Meaning you can go to them anytime during the day and ask for help and they will be more then willing to help you.

You never know what the weather will be. There can be sunshine and the next minute it is raining. When it rains nobody wants to pursue going to class because they will get wet
Sorry, there are no reviews.
