Overall Experience: From the beginning, things were disorganized. I was enrolled in classes that I did not need to take. Most of the teachers are reasonable, but some have personal vendettas against their students. Many teachers were ill-prepared in their subject matter. The Technology and Education teacher knew far less about the topic than I did. Classes in the Adult division are far too rushed to actually learn anything of purpose. They will lie on your grades, lie on your payments, and lie on your graduation requirements, all in an effort to extract more money. They don't tell you up front that the adult teaching degree will be totally worthless unless you intend to take a year off work to get your Masters. I would recommend any college above this one, especially if you are considering it to be Christian and would be devastated to here that it reflects no christian principles in their business practices.

Overall Experience: My school is a Christian university that is intentional about building a strong community of believers. Northwest University helps me to ask questions about my beliefs and challenge my faith in an environment where I have the resources to find the answers I need.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of places in Kirkland and furthermore in Seattle, and all very different. Some places will offer student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness on campus is good and helps create a good atmosphere, I think. There are very strict values and codes that must be regarded upon entering this school, especially about things like drinking, but a student should be prepared for that when applying.

Scholarships: The people who work in financial aid are really good about getting students what they need and dealing with any problems. But, I have had communication problems with them, which has caused some stress, but it got figured out in a timely manner. Don't be afraid to ask questions and email/talk to someone in financial aid if you need help, because they will do their best.

Party Scene: We don't have any parties because Northwest University is a Christian school. Therefore they don't allowed any dancing, drinking or any sexual activity on campus. However, we have the evening and Roomies where guys ask girls for a movie night and it is so much fun.
