Northwestern College is a wonderful college with faith integration and a very rigorous academic programs. The professors here are highly qualified and genuinely care about every student they encounter. My experience here so far is fantastic and I am loving every minute of it. There is a large variety of clubs, sports, and activities to take part in! Every student here contributes to our community. Community is a large part of Northwestern and you will here this at least three times a week. Warm cookie Wednesday in the cafeteria is also great. If you are looking for an awesome but challenging school with faith integration and challenging academics then this is the college for you!

If you want to make a mark at this awesome establishment, that's comes to be a choice. Choice was a big part of this educational experience for me. There are so many opportunities on and off this campus, and even in the community you will find many social outlets to plug yourself into. Choice however can land you a good experience or a bad experience, if you don't make a choice to go out and experience everything Northwestern has to offer (The community, different dorms, diverse atmospheres, an awesome coffee shop, opportunities for amazing travel and internships) and choose to just stay in your dorm with friends (Which is great sometimes, especially Harry Potter or Star Wars marathons on a cold rainy day), your missing out and you're going to waste a huge amount of money on an experience I had that was worth every penny! Although, I have to hand it to my roommates / wing dwellers for a place that I called a great second home for 2-1/2 wonderful years! :)

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.
