Not a bad school for someone wanting a cheap yet quality education. I was always told not to base a college on it's campus but Northwest really does have a beautiful campus - trees and squirrels galore, bell tower, majestic-looking Administration building. The town of Maryville is not exactly a metropolis - it's got a Wal-Mart and a McDonald's but you've about a half hour drive to anywhere worth going to.
