I think that my career prospects are very good after Northland, because I have worked hard while I've been here. I've also been able to participate in research related to my field. I wouldn't say that a degree from Northland is all that special on a resume, but if you get the hands-on, individualized experience that is opportunity that is offered here, that might say something to potential employers.
