    Greek Life

    Greek Life is not offered at this particular campus of Northwood University.

    What to do for fun

    located very close to downtown west palm beach there is quite a lot of fun things to do!

    Food and Dining

    There is only one dining hall, and its not the best.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you know exactly what you want to do after graduation from college, also make sure that a small school is what's right for you.

    In three sentences

    Northwood is a fantastic school for students looking to get a jump-start into their major, while having to take no GED classes. At Northwood the class sizes are small and students get that one on one help whenever they need it. Also, the school is small enough that students get to know each other quite well.

    Great for these types of students

    If you plan on majoring in a business degree then this school is one of the best choices that I've seen in a while.

    Tips for prospective students

    I know that college's can sometimes scare seniors, but don't worry the staff here is great and can be very helpful all you have to do is talk to them.

    Bang for the buck

    Since the school is private the price is higher than a public school. But, it is worth the price with the education you will receive here.

    Am enjoying being here

    With the school being in South Florida, there is lots to do. Whether, going downtown for a movie, heading to the beach, or down to Miami or Fort Lauderdale there's always something going on around campus.

    Am learning a lot

    Small class sizes makes it great for learning.

    Great for these types of students

    People who like very small schools and who want to learn about different cultures. Northwood is filled with students from all over the world.

    Tips for prospective students

    Scholarships! Scholarships! Scholarships!

    Bang for the buck

    Absolutely too expensive!! I know its a private university. But it sure wasn't worth spending so much.

    Am enjoying being here

    Students are very nice and teachers are usually there to talk if you need anything. I just didn't like how small the school was.

    Am learning a lot

    I was in the accounting program and I didn't learn a thing at all. The teacher wasn't very good at teaching it.

    Campus Safety

    Campus security takes their jobs very seriously with night time visitors. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. What they say goes. Resident Assistants (R.A.s) allow you to do what you want in the dorms for the most part, but they will inform you what you can and cannot do. Listen to your R.A.s.

    Greek Life

    No Greek life on this campus

    Clubs and Activities

    Numerous amounts of potential clubs and programs to get involved with. Easy resume building activities that stick out for potential employers. Basketball team is one of the best in the nation (in the NAIA level) and has gone to the championship twice in the past 3 years. Basketball games are a good time and a great environment to be in with friends.

    Great for these types of students

    Hispanic Spanish speaking students. Very diverse student body. Lots of international students from Europe, Asia, and Latin America (Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, etc.)

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This campus has an outdoor pool, and an outdoor basketball court that I had never seen before. Library hangs over the water for a very scenic view. There is a lake and a river that runs through the campus. Very beautiful.

    Bang for the buck

    Very expensive school compared to others since it is a private university. Teachers provide all they can to make your education worthwhile. Administration and what they have to offer the students is sub-par.

    What to do for fun

    If you go to this school, you WILL have a good time. Lots of outgoing people and it is only minutes away from the ocean. Also, Clematis Street and CityPlace in Downtown West Palm Beach provide the night life every college student dreams of. You have to be willing to spend some money though!

    Food and Dining

    Food is pretty good, your average cafeteria offering. Dining facilities are nothing to brag out. Old TVs and almost like a high school cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Outdoor dorm setting that allows you to interact with lots and lots of students. Not too strict but definitely a safe environment.

    Academic Rigor

    School isn't too difficult yet it applies real-life learning scenarios that may serve as a benefit more so than your average text book.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit the campus and meet some of the teachers. Get to know if the school has what you believe suits you. Don't let them convince you to sign up the day of. Think about it. This is a big decision you are making and it will cost you a lot of money!

    In three sentences

    A university with many professors that possess real-life experiences in the field they teach. Numerous opportunities for networking with other students due to the small student enrollment. You get to develop a name for yourself and meet a lot of the students very quickly.

    Food and Dining

    Food is excellent, they always have options for you and the meals are always fresh.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately I commute to school so I have not had the chance to see how the dorm life is.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors, like in any other school expect you to be on top of your school work and on time to your classes. Some challenges that us as students can face is having to work and go to school at the time, which can at times complicate our studying habits. Overall, when you put your mind to it things will work out smoothly.

    In three sentences

    Northwood University has been a huge blessing for my life in which I have gain great knowledge on my major and was able to get hands on experience since day one. It is a school that has a passion for business and is determined to help their students succeed. Having one on one with the professors is great!
