While I am not entirely thrilled with the location, the school and the people greatly compensate for that. Not only is it a beautiful campus, but the students and professors all care about each other and create a warm, loving environment. Plus, with it being a small campus, you are able to build strong relationships with most everyone, including the professors. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at NNU.

While it's luster has worn off as I've deepened by education here, NNU is still one great school. The small, Christ-centered community has helped me in many ways, from finding employment in my field to getting help with classes to getting connected with the Nampa and Treasure Valley community as a whole. It's not a school for everyone, as it's generally pretty "tame." Also, Idaho winters suck unless there's snow on the ground. But I am privileged to be able to do my undergrad at this institution, and it is also up for consideration for continuing my Master's at.

The community at NNU is the greatest and one of the most supportive communities I've ever been apart of. I love that I can be in a community that not only is supportive in every way I need academically but also socially and spiritually. Between all the student life events, living on campus, and the students that make NNU the place that it is I couldn't have chosen a better school for me. The smaller community and class sizes allow for so many different opportunities to work hands on with professors whether it is in understanding a class or working on a research project with them. The campus life is so great and a positive community to live among. Also NNU being a Christ Centered community makes the experience of being a student here even better. I am given opportunities to grow and learn in my walk with God while being supported by a lot of my peers.
