I have attended NWACC for 5 semesters so far and I am glad so see how much it has grown in the time I have been there. It is a lively but comfortable campus, they did well creating an atmosphere of learning.

They really do help you - just ask! If the staff don't know the answer, they will find it for you - just drop by the student center! I really enjoy going to school here.
