Northwest Vista College is one of the best community colleges in Texas. I love that that it is located five minutes away from my house which is great in beating traffic! The only negative part about my college is the parking. Of course all colleges are going to terrible parking, but this year we lost a huge parking lot to build a parking garage which would only add about 400 more parking spots. The parking pass for the garage would cost around $200, and you are not even guaranteed a spot! Nevertheless, what makes up for it is the faculty and staff. They are so helpful, and I have never had a problem with any of my professors. There is also many possible resources available around the campus so there is no excuse to make bad grades. The resources are right in front of you, and I love to take advantage if that!

The Northwest College campus was the perfect size to me. It was not as big as Arizona State University (a college I visited) but not so small that I couldn't have a full college experience. Everything is within walking distance, and the rooms were an adequate size. The halls are all different from each other, which adds some good diversity. There is a full mix of people, with different ages, interests, and intended degree studies. The price is so reasonable compared to many other colleges! And for me, it is only an hour and a half from home.

Finacial Aid – When going through my application process and all the things involved with starting college, the financial aid was very scarce. Federal aid was about all the school offered. And the poor communication between offices in the same building made it so all my financial aid was locked due to lack of communication. Currently my aid is still locked and despite my efforts to speak to the school about aid they seem to have no options other than federal and alumni related aid.
Work study was also something I also have been looking into. I wished to work in the Adult Education office on campus, I filled out the application and call and emailed the woman about the job. She informed me that the position wasn't even going to be filled. Money provided for financial aid was no going to be used at all due to the fact that they are not even filling the position. WHAT?!
This has been as far as my student financial aid has gotten so far.
