3 College Senior

Diversity: The school have a wide diversity of students and everyone is really accepting of them and tries to make them fit in.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The dorms are so clean and they want you to feel like it's your home. They also try to give you your own room if you request it.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug and alcohol visibility is very very limited. The campus really makes sure they don't have any of that on campus.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I love where my school is located. It is in a small college town but it is also close to a bigger city if you need anything.

4 College Senior

Parking: The school in always making sure they have enough parking for everyone.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Alva is a small town so there isn't alot of different places to go out to eat. But I really don't mind it because I love living in a small town.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love it here! I only wish I would have came here my first year of college. They really do have the best college in the nation.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: They heath service here is good. They make sure everyone is healthy and makes sure nothing spreads. They clean the campus very well to make sure nothing is "caught".

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I think the campus strictness is good. They really make sure students have that college experience but in the safe and fun way. They want to make sure alcohol and drugs are not in the picture. They want to show students that you can have a great party or get together without all of that.

5 College Senior

Academics: I am majoring in Elementary Education and this school is known for their education program. You have small class sizes so you can get that one on one conferencing if need and they really know how to prepare you for the real world of teaching. They want to see you succeed.

5 College Senior

Academics: There are so many other academics offered at this school and the other one that I am going to pursue is Ag Business. This school had so much to offer and are willing to help you out to make sure you graduate with your bachelors.

College Senior

Transportation: We do not have campus transportation because our college is so close and connected together it is easy and convenient for students to get around.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The life on campus is amazing. I am a senior and I still live in the dorms because of the cost and they are always having great and fun activities for the students to be involved in and get to know people. I love being apart of all of it. And the facilities provide great places to hold all of these events.

5 College Senior

Athletics: The school takes great pride in our athletics even is the season isn't going so well for a certain sport. I know we moved up to D2 (correct me if I'm wrong) and it's been great for the school but the sports are still getting used to it. But the school and the students are awesome at supporting them no matter what. Coming to NWOSU was the best decision I have ever made. I am so proud to be a Ranger!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus even when walking alone.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a shortage of off-campus housing here. Plus prices tend to be high due to oilfield traffic. However, there are some very nice apartments and houses available and you can find some at decent prices if you look around.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There is one club in town and it is decent and doesn't cost a lot to get in. There are other bars but most of them are pretty scummy.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety isn't a big problem but the dorms are very unclean and there is mold everywhere

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Without this university the town would shrivel up and die

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: One night club in town but they are very strict on underage drinking

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Honestly I have never felt unsafe at NWOSU. It is a small campus and extremely safe. They have campus police available to call 24 hrs a day and 7 days a week if needed. Honestly I feel extremely safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Thursday thru Saturday Nights at Northwestern are usually exciting. They have a dance club in Alva that after you turn 16 you can go and have fun but no drinking till you are 21 years of age. They have great bodyguards who help keep the place safe while they are open so I would say they have great night life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus Housing at Northwestern Oklahoma State University I heard is great. Sure it is a bit expensive for the rent but hey at least you can get out of the dorms. They have room for a room mate to split the cost and hey no dorms. So on the up side its all great.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs and wireless access is great at Northwestern Oklahoma State University is great. You always have a way to get onto a computer. They have like three computer labs plus you have free internet in your dorms. So all together I would say we have great computer access.

1 College Senior

Weather: The weather at my school is crazy! It changes just about everyday and sometimes multiple times in one day. You can wake up and it's cold and rainy then by the afternoon you need shorts and a tank top. It also snows pretty bad and this past year we were out of school for over a week! It's crazy but when the weather it's good it's good. The only issue is you never know what the weather will be like so it's hard deciding what to wear or if it's fitting for a relaxing day outdoors with friends.
