Ratings and Reviews

Names on Map


The app is helpful but would be even more helpful if the building's names were still on the map that way students can find their way around easier.

Good but missing the old map.


Okay I loved the app and it has helped me a lot being new but the update kind of messed it up because I can see how the new map can be helpful but you should also include the old one because that one was better to me.

Can be better


Glad to see my school finally doing something to help its students on the go. The one thing that this app is missing, that is an important part to my low rating, is why isn't there an easy way to access myNIU from this app? I would like to see that added if there is an update for this.
