3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus tries to exemplify safety but it does not seem very prominent. The safety services seem to police the students instead of the campus. There have been a couple issues of people getting into the dorms who shouldn't be because there are places where people can sneak onto campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Northwestern offers a variety of classes. The professors are very invested into the lives of each student due to small class sizes. You are not just a number or a student to them; you are a unique individual.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Employer recruiting is very prominent on campus. Nearly every day there is a workplace looking for students, though it's usually focused toward one area/type of student/degree.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, the housing is great. There are some downsides to the housing, such as things breaking/needing repair in the dorms more than once a semester, but the accommodations are good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of our school, and it shows through our facilities, school/fan support, and involvement. Most people on campus participate in either varsity or intramural sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed being at Northwestern. There is such a community that I haven't found anywhere else, and honestly, it was hard leaving after I was done with my first year.

5 College Student

Party Scene: I mean it's the best as in there is none. Yes, it is about a fifteen minute drive from many other colleges and areas in the city with a wild party scene, but there is virtually wild night life at Northwestern.

5 College Student

Party Scene: Same as my last answer, no party scene around. Very dry campus. Strict visiting hours.

5 College Student

Academics: The professors I have met at this school are very personable and want you to succeed. Their curriculum covers exactly what it should, and though they have a tough workload, I also feel like I am getting a lot from the classes.

3 College Student

Diversity: This is a private Christian college in the midwest. There is some ethnic diversity, but everyone one campus identifies as Christian and no one is openly gay.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Anyone can access campus, we just have a little entrance gate and one security guard to let people in. its super easy to access campus through bike and walking.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think the classes here are good, but I think some of the Professors in-class activities are not fun. The class sizes are good. I like in person classes, when It comes to a big lecture class and the teacher doesn't have a PowerPoint slide or any notes displayed, it makes note taking very hard.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the career center does a good job on campus trying to get people to do internships for companies.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a lot of space and we can actually walk around in our room. We have a bathroom, a walk in closet, and a kitchen with a mini fridge.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't really have a Greek life/society here on campus, so I can't really say anything about it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: the school spirit is super huge here. Especially at football games. There are so many people at the games that it fills up super quickly. There is a lot of fan supports too.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is alright, but the Christian atmosphere is just not for me. The people are super friendly and the Professors are great, but again I just don't see myself being here for the next three years.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great professors who did an incredible job at teaching, and effectively grading. The class sizes were great and the teachers taught accordingly very well.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security on the campus was a pretty big deal. We often discussed it with the RA and they were in the process of implementing new safety measures when I was attending school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms were pretty good. A bit small and a little older but that is OK. There was plenty of student study space and I loved being a little away from the campus but within walking distance.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really appreciated the how student and Christ focused the staff and all the professors were. There was not a single professor who was lax with his position. They took their work seriously, used class time extremely efficiently and cared about me as an individual. I loved how Christ centered the school was. Even during Symphonic Wind rehearsal we would take time to stop and pray for each other. Truly a school with top quality education while maintaining Christian values and focus in the education.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Courses are challenging, but only as much as they should be. In most classes I've taken so far, the course is true to the syllabus. Professors are very helpful.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm only taking online classes right now, but I'm pretty sure my on campus experience will be even better.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There is literally no party scene whatsoever. UNW: Named "tamest party school in America". If you want a party, bar, or club scene, the University of MN campus is a 10 minute drive away.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There is no party scene at Northwestern. Unless you count grocery bingo, movie nights, and choir concerts as party life.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

As a whole, Northwestern is loved by its students. The faculty, programs, students, staff, community, and environment create an atmosphere of love, comfort, and respect. A high level of satisfaction exists because most students chose the College for the high level of Christian education that Northwestern offers.

Northwestern is a place where professors and faculty do not shut down when they go home at night. Professors make themselves available to help and support students all the time, many of them even giving out their home numbers to students in case they should ever need to talk. Nearly all students that attend Northwestern have a deep passion for their faith and are on fire for the Lord. Students and faculty have such welcoming and sincere personalities, which makes it easy to get to know people. Friendships created at NWC are something cherished by everyone. There's not a place on campus where you won't receive a smile or salutation. The light created by the Lord is apparent on this campus and in its students.
