5 College Junior

Academics: It is a heavy workload being an education major but it is worth it!

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Academics are what you make of it. If you really want to challenge yourself, there is an honors program, and you work with your professors to create a plan for enriching the courses you want to enrich. There are also honor societies for several different majors.

Academics: Biology is a tough major at NGU it is considered one of the toughest ones here. The professors want to make sure that if you make it through the biology program at NGU, that you will be able to go where you want to go. This requires you to work hard, and put forth large amounts of effort. The professors in the college of science and mathematics do not baby you, and they do not go easy on people that just try to do the minimal amount of work (I would know). They don't want you to just get by, they want you to excel, and go on to be the top of your field.
