Northwest Indian College is a tribal institution on the Lummi Indian Reservation and the only accredited tribal college serving Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. As an institution dedicated to the study of Native cultures, NIC offers four bachelor’s degree programs in subjects such as Native Studies Leadership, Tribal Governance, and Native Environmental Space. NIC’s enrollment draws from a number of Native traditions and over 90 tribes are represented in the college’s student body. Outside of the classroom, NIC fields athletic teams in men’s and women’s basketball.
I loved the students and staff because of support and comfort. I did not like the online book store and Tulalips Tribes mail system. Some in the beginning of registration, I would be late to register because of the wrong classes for degree program.
Northwest Indian College is great for students who are looking to learn more about their heritage. It is also a great school for Natives looking to get an education that they can use in their tribes. Lastly is great for students who like smaller classrooms.
