Don't Be Stupid – Don't be stupid and you won't get caught. Don't have alcohol on campus--it's a dry campus, and you'll have to face consequences for your actions. Don't be obnoxious or break the rules, and you'll be fine.
Nothing Special – If you're a freshman, you're going to live in either the newest buildings on campus, or the oldest. There really isn't an in-between option. They base where you live off of when you sign up for housing. Sign up early if you want a nice room!
The same goes for upperclassmen with the signing up. To get the Tower Suites or South Complex, it's best to sign up early. Forest Village Apartments are quick to fill up, as well, but the housing situation is a little different there.
The cost depends on where you live. Living in one of the high-rises (Dieterich, Millikan, Phillips or Franken) costs significantly less than living in Hudson/Perrin, South, or the Tower Suites.
Not Too Bad – The facilities are usually kept pretty well-maintained, with custodial staff cleaning everywhere at least once a day in the different buildings throughout. The library is really good, in particular, because it offers a wide array of books and DVDs for whatever purpose you require.
Not Bad – A lot of people live on campus, so you shouldn't have too much trouble getting to class. If you live off-campus, though, make sure you have a good head-start. There's plenty of parking near the buildings with classes in them, too.
Northwest is a big sports campus. There are a lot of intramural activities, and the support they have for their football team is tremendous.
Very Little to Worry About – There isn't a lot to worry about on campus, really. Just be smart, don't walk out late alone, and don't leave your stuff where it could be stolen.
