So far my experience with this university overall has been over satisfactory. The staff that work there is friendly and genuinely dedicated to their work to help you succeed and make sure any of your questions are thoroughly answered. The students included have so far been very helpful and welcoming with open arms and are also very faith based. This school to me is unique because the staff I have met remembered who I specifically was when I had met them again and could recall our conversations, such as my admissions counselor Kassia Galick, which I have not experienced with other universities in Oregon. I am personally glad that I have chosen to purse my education with this college because of how dedicated they are to make you happy with your decisions and guide us not only with our careers, but faith as well. If I had to make a decision of where I could pursue my education once again I would defiantly choose NorthWest Christian University again because of the fact that they are all so caring and love to make you have the best experience, guidance and education possible.

The school is great for building a sense of community.

Small classes are nice and staff. Staff and community atmosphere are really great. Sometimes getting help from adjunct professors is difficult. It is assumed that you are doing school full time and not working (not reasonable for adult programs).
