My college experience was wonderful! I was very involved and it led me to the career field I am in (higher education). I created so many wonderful memories, made great friendships, and loved my classes!

Every professor I had was willing and excited to get to know me and help me succeed personally. They are very friendly especially in their office hours. This does not mean that they won't push you. The professors at Northwest will expect a lot from you and push you harder than you might like. This push allows you to grow as a person as I have grown a lot from being a part of this college.
