4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of food places around campus, and many more that are beginning to open up. So far, it's been a pleasant experience.... except for my wallet!

1 College Junior

Administration: The strictness of our school is way over the top. There are 25-30 year-olds who are being told they cannot have a drink... there are 18-23 year olds being told they cannot spend time with a member of the opposite sex except for certain designated hours... there are fines for everything which should be illegal... but it is a private christian school so it's somewhat understandable.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The past few years I have been here, I have received an athletic scholarship that covered all of my financial needs. This will be my first year needing financial aid help, and going through the process. So far it has been okay, it seems like a lot of work (obviously, compared to my past few effortless years...)

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Because it's NNU.... the parties that are thrown are thrown off campus... and almost always at one athlete's house or another. They're awesome though... a lot of people show up, there's good chemistry and atmosphere between the people, and it's not out-of-control ragers, like most colleges have. They are maintained fairly sensibly, are safe and allow people to follow the NNU lifestyle conduct rules.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is totally hit or miss. Often times the food is just poorly made or looks unappetizing...which might be part of making/ordering food in bulk. The meats are almost always sketchy..

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are so many rules, it makes people not want to live on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is great! ... If you can find it. Most of the options get snatched up really quickly and people hold onto them for dear life. It's really hard to find someplace close enough to campus that is in okay shape and in the price range.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's basically the usual McDonalds, Panda Express and Taco bell. The town does have a pretty good mexican restaurant and they have a Dickey's BBQ which is all right. The great thing is that most of the local places will give the students a pretty good discount. Other options include Subway, Wendy's, Mongolian BBQ, Little Caesars. I've heard there is a Panera, but have never actually been there.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: NNU has an honor code and they expect their students to abide by it. It's not that hard, nor is it an unreasonable request. The administration cares deeply about the students and they are all very nice and more than willing to spend time with you.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office and business office are very understanding and always willing to help. You can ask them questions and they don't beat around the bush with the answers. NNU has a ton of financial aid opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most of the parties you hear about are school sanctioned and put on by the SGA. They do a very good job with these events and they are always a lot of fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is either really good, or really awful in The Dex. That's the main cafeteria. In The Dex there is a main line that offers the main entree and sides for that meal, a grill that offers hamburgers and cheeseburgers, a deli that offers made-to-order sandwiches, an expo that offers an entree different than the one on main line (usually a salad, pasta, or wrap). NNU has a thing called flex money and what that is is a pre-paid amount of money that is included with your meal plan. This "money" can be spent at the libraries (amazing place by the way) coffee shop, The Bean. They offer Starbucks coffee, soda, sobe, and amazing baked goods including bagels and cinnamon rolls. I highly suggest the cinnamon rolls.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at NNU is pretty good. All the dorms are fairly close to each other which means your friends are never far away. No matter what dorm you are in, you are never more than five minutes from your next class. The people here are great and so friendly, there is always a helping hand nearby. The cost of living on campus is cheaper than living off campus unless you've got a bunch of friends you are willing to room with. Freshman and Sophomore year you have one roommate, Junior and Senior year you will have three. Housing is based on a lottery process. It is really simple and straightforward.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Nampa can be pretty sketchy to live around. A lot of the neighborhoods surrounding NNU have good prices and availability - however, most of them are the same and very old. Some of them are even falling apart. The farther you get away from campus (for the most part) the nicer the houses get, but the prices are higher and transportation is tougher.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: From fast food to basic chain restaurants, there's quite a bit of off-campus foods to chose from. There's even a few ma and pa style restaurants in Nampa that are very good. A lot of places like Panda Express or Dutch Bros. give NNU student discounts, but I wish more restaurants would give similar benefits to us.

3 College Junior

Administration: The administration is pretty strict - they outline the do's and don'ts of on and off campus life and make you sign the life style agreement. I've never been involved in any serious violations, so I wouldn't know how they actually deal with it. Most violations include fines. At NNU, there's a famous saying that goes around: "There's a fine for that!"

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I think it was the average and somewhat easy process to get the money I needed. It was a lot of work, but I got all the aid I needed to get through school without too much hassle - in other words, the work paid off (literally).

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Most of the parties on campus include big events put on by SGA. I go sometimes to these events and have a good time - but it's mostly basic music, snacks, and socialization. Some of the other kind of parties occur off campus and I choose not to find out about that. Overall, NNU is not a big party school.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Honestly, I may be slightly biased considering I work at the Dex, but I think it provides good quality of food and service. Sometimes, the options are limited and bad, but a mass production food company can't simply please everyone every day. Most of the time, it's basic and good food that I and all the other students can rely on for our meals.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The school's on campus dorms and apartments are exceptional - they're clean, the social atmosphere is welcoming and vibrant, and the people in charge (the Resident Director for example) are always there for you. However, some downsides include lack of maintenance and technology. Although most of these buildings are old, something seems to go wrong with the Internet, the heater, or the lock on the door. Most of the time, the school's maintenance is very slow to respond to your problem, so it could be weeks until the heater is fixed. Overall, living on campus is not too bad.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from NNU is very valuable, as many employers, especially hospitals in regards to nursing majors, love to hire NNU students because of the quality of education that students receive.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had a job because I have been focusing on my studies.
