    It is true that Northwestern is very expensive. However, the way that I try to look at it is that if it is God's will for you to come here and you earnestly seek Him, He will provide in various ways. And you definitely get what you pay for if you come to Northwestern!

    With so many majors available, including religious fields and secular you are bound to find it in this close knit Christain environment. You will be expanding your mind as well as your Christain walk with weekly chapel. Most students will also have a minor in Biblical studies as well as their major when they graduate from the University of Northwestern at St. Paul.

Northwestern helps you to engage the world beyond the bubble of college. You will learn to invest in the people that make our society so incredible, and to help every person make a difference. It's a learning experience like no other.

    It's expensive. It's not the most well-known Christian school, but it's perfect for some people. God will provide if this is where He wants you.
