Students' academic experiences at Northwest Florida State College are very different. Some students who take a modest course load (i.e. 9-12 credits) do very well. Those students don't usually feel very overwhelmed. Other ambitious students tend to take 13-18 credits in one semester. With their schedule, they seem to have no time for any other aspect of their life (i.e. employment).
No matter how many courses a student takes at Northwest, he is still usually presented with great academic experiences. Most professors will elaborate in class about the lecture. Professors also offer help through e-mail and phone support. They often want to see students succeed. On the other hand, some professors' time is limited, and they do not lecture well in class. These professors can usually be found in night classes, fast-track courses, weekend college, distance learning, and online classes. This is why some students can handle one or more of these types of courses in addition to other courses on campus. However students set out to achieve their education, their academic experience is what they make of it.
