Communications (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON20 February 2019
Lots of great things to like about NU, including amazing people and good benefits.

Sadly, there is little opportunity for employees to grow.

Hopefully it will turn things around in the near future.

Strong Workplace, with a Few Flaws
Admissions & Enrollment Services Coordinator (Current Employee) –  North Bay, ON26 September 2018
Nipissing University is a great place to work with few issues. Due to being unionized, all unionized staff get access to two breaks a day and a one hour lunch. The only negatives are that it takes some time move up at the organization.

Satellite campus review
Student (Former Employee) –  Satellite campus - Brantford25 April 2018
The professor who had taught a bunch of FSL teachers, was a core French teacher herself, therefore had very little to offer teachers seeking to teach in the Immersion program.

Poor environment.
Student Experience Assistant (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON26 February 2018
Nipissing University is an excellent school, but as with all other universities, it is going downhill fast. In an attempt to be progressive, the university shames students for being "privileged, white, and male".
Pros
Easy job.

As Good a Teacher Education Program as I Assume There Is
Intermediate/Senior (Current Employee) –  North Bay, ON2 May 2017
Although teachers' college is widely viewed by teachers to be a flawed program, Nipissing does a solid job of providing me with an education. I am generally happy with most aspects of being an education student at Nipissing, but there are always the occasional classes that feel unimportant. North Bay has a lot of nice natural scenery, but not too much else to do.
