    This is the first college I've attended and as far as community colleges go, I feel spoiled. Every time I go to school I feel happy walking along side the lake, seeing friendly students engaging in college life. Sometimes it feels like I'm in a movie with the typical college scene of people throwing a football on the lawn, students studying by the lake sipping coffee, student groups setting up tables to entice you to join, it just feels good. Also at NWV is a good variety of courses and majors, along with advisors to help you figure out your path.
