School, in general, is great. The professors are very approachable and very willing to work with students one on one until they understand the material. Peer Tutor's are also available to students, ensuring that someone is always there to help a student succeed and make the grades they need to. Our campus focuses on loving each other and making the campus feel like a tight knit community where we worship together, pray for each other, and learn and grow in faithful and courageous learning. I would choose Northwestern over again in a heart beat because there is no other campus where one feels so welcomed, loved, and taken care of even within a day of stepping foot on it.
