    Campus Safety

    There always seems to be a campus officer around. The campus is always well lite.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students that don't like over whelming numbers of students to be around. Great for older students wanting to go back to school.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like for the money this is an excellent 2-year college.

    Food and Dining

    Great.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in a dorm. But I have not heard of any complaints.

    Tips for prospective students

    NWSCC is a wonderful college to attend to get yourself started in college. There a very friendly down to earth people there that want to see their students succeed.

    In three sentences

    NWSCC is a great school to attend especially for older students like me who haven't been to school in a long time. The admission's office is very helpful in registering for classes. The teaching faculty are very good at helping to get acquainted to the school atmosphere again. They have class scheduling in the afternoons and online classes that are very convenient for a working mother like myself.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise going to Northwest Shoals in Muscle Shoals, because it is a good way to get your basics out of the way before having to transfer to a more expensive college. They do offer many great options over at Northwest Shoals, and will just about work with you on anything that you need. Just stop by the campus and tour it.

    Great for these types of students

    Trade skills, first year college students, older students wanting to go back to college.

    Bang for the buck

    Great education for a much lower tuition than the four year institutions close in the area.

    What to do for fun

    Music, art, community activities

    Food and Dining

    Without a doubt, this is the only negative for your campus. I would love to see a food area or place to sit and eat lunch established on our campus.

    Academic Rigor

    NWSCC is an excellent choice to begin the college experience. I recommend taking your basics and using the two years to decide on a 4 year degree.

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet your instructors and get involved. Even though this is a community campus, make your face known.

    In three sentences

    NWSCC is an excellent place to begin your college experience. The administration as well as the professors are very student oriented and helpful. The math lab is an excellent resource for students.

    Campus Safety

    Super safe campus. The kind of campus you could leave your car doors unlocked and the windows down. I have never seen a fight or serous incident on campus.

    Greek Life

    None..

    Clubs and Activities

    Phi Theta Kappa, SGA, Intramural Sports, Toyland, Spring Fling, Halloween festivities, Jail-Break, Blood drives, symposiums, concerts, pageants, and more.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who prefer small schools, friendly/helpful teachers, and students who have children or jobs that don't have a lot of extra time.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I know of.

    Bang for the buck

    I enjoy going to this school immensely, but I have different tastes in education than the average college student.

    What to do for fun

    Their are hiking trails, pool tables, ping-pong tables, and other little activities for students to do while passing the time. Their is an annual Spring Fling and an annual production of Toyland, The state recently cut sports from the school but there are still gyms and a tennis court.

    Food and Dining

    There is a cafeteria that is catered by a local restaurant. They make an effort to offer a variety of choices, but it is still pretty limited. The town does not offer many choices either. They basically have two small diners and a grocery store.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at my campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers are not real bad about asking students to feat impossible tasks. The typically do not ask the student to do more than what is required to understand the subject being taught.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best tip I have for any student is be organized. Organization has changed my life. I encourage everyone to make lists, schedules, and plans. Another tip, try not to miss class or get behind.

    In three sentences

    The campus that I attend is located in a small community of less than 3000 people. The teachers are friendly and enjoy helping students get the most out of their education. The school lacks a variety of organizations and activities, but makes an effort to get students involved.
