WHERE IT ALL BEGINS


As you’re embarking on some of the most defining years in your life, you must be asking yourself many questions. What are you looking for in a college? Are you hoping to just learn or make an impact? Would you like to leave with a degree or a career? Whether you’re looking for a stepping stone to a four-year degree, hands-on training to jump-start your career, or something in between - you’ll find it at Northland.


GO NORTH Minnesota’s great northwest, where the prairie meets the north woods, naturally offers plenty to explore. Nestled amidst the lakes, forests, rivers and scenic landscapes, you’ll find adventure and lots of things to enjoy. Vibrant towns offer specialty shops, art and music festivals, and dining of all kinds. And there’s no hibernating in winter; not with snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing and more.
