Discipline

 

In the military, they learned it. At Northern, they live it.

 


 

  

Northern State University faculty and staff reflect on their current and past military service

How it has shaped their lives

And the unique opportunities for military students at Northern

 

 

 

"[Military students] have done more. They’ve seen more. They’ve traveled more. It gives them an advantage."

 

  “A lot of freshmen are still trying to find their way ... I don’t have that problem with students in the military.”     " ... It's easy for a student to transfer credits from Northern to wherever they may get transferred to in the military."   "I’ve never seen a school that’s so willing to commit resources and provide students with proactive feedback to ensure success.”

  "The smaller class sizes and individual attention ... make NSU an excellent choice for any veteran."

   "Military students simply enhance the campus because of their variety of experiences."   "We really have a surprisingly diverse campus – I think veterans have a lot to share in our courses."    "Northern is a lot like a military community, in a way ... You will feel comfortable if you've grown up or lived on military bases."
