Life at Northern
At Northern, you are never far from your next great adventure. There is always something to see, do and experience. Enjoy plenty of recreational activities in all four seasons. Spend time outdoors exploring nature trails and lakes. Attend a wide range of festivals, attractions and cultural events. The Northern experience is so much more than just classes, labs and homework. That’s why we host exciting activities and events giving you an opportunity to make new friends and create great memories.
For outdoor enthusiasts, our Northern communities provide excitement and adventure. Snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, and ice fishing can fill the winter months. Enjoy summers golfing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or relaxing by one of the hundreds of lakes surrounding our campus communities.
There is never a shortage of indoor activities. As a student, you have free access to athletic facilities. All campus locations have a weight room, cardio equipment, and a full-size gymnasium. Intramurals and activities are specific to each campus location and are held throughout the year. Why not complement your academic growth with a fitness regimen? Get to know students from other programs over a game of basketball, badminton or hockey.
We host annual events that celebrate our multicultural student population and build a sense of community centred on respect and diversity. Our Annual Northern College Traditional Powwow and Indigenous Cultural Awareness Week is a time for students, staff and community to learn and celebrate Indigenous cultures.
