What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Try everything but not too much. As a Freshman it's easy to get overwhelmed. Calm down and find a good set of friends. It's okay to not hang out with your wing, roommate, or your friends from the first week of school.
Attend classes and do all your homework. Go to bed at midnight. Fred Meyer's Peanut Butter with Honey makes for a great late night snack. Learn your schedule and all of the schedules. Never miss chapel.
Curtis from Lynnwood, WA
Save money for books, many of them are made specifically for NNU
Just go to chapel, it ends up being quite interesting and fun
Do not be afraid to reach out and open up to fellow students, everyone is so kind!
Danielle from Boise, ID
Beginning on move in day, decide to be friendly and reach out to others. Communicate honestly with your roommate. As you are walking down the sidewalks to class, make eye contact and smile! Sit in different places in the cafeteria. Look for people that need to be included and include them. Get involved on campus - there are lots of clubs and organizations to choose from. Don't forget to go to class, study, keep a calendar of when things are due, and get your needed exercise and sleep. If you don't want to gain the freshman 15, don't eat after 7pm, walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator, and eat your fruit and vegetables.
Jessica from Eagle, ID
Don't come here if you want to come to a party school, but if you want a great school with great academics then come. get your work done though, and apply for scholarships, because it isn't cheap.
Timothy from Cove, OR
Register early. The staff is very willing to help with questions and concerns. They take their job seriously and will be very helpful.
Suzie Student
I should say, if you come to campus, get involved. Don't lock yourself in your room. Go to events, go to sports games, be involved in the student activities. The more you get involved and explore all the different parts of campus and people will start to recognize you and support you in what you do for being here and involved.
Greggory from NAMPA, ID
Apply for scholarships like crazy ahead of time. If you come to NNU strong with money it will make it easier to stay in the future. It will be easier to take out loans, just because you don't have that much money out already (so you won't keep piling up the loans). Also realize that this is a time when you are going to figure out who you are. Maybe write out your values, because you are going to be tested and have to come up with solutions on your own. NNU is a great environment for that, though. NNU really helps to shape you.
Kate from Seattle, WA
Come visit campus! Everyone who steps on campus, eats in the Dex, goes to a community chapel, or stays in one of the dorms can feel the family atmosphere radiating throughout campus and you will love it! Come meet a few of the profs and find out that you will be getting something here, that is just not possible in a lecture class of 200 people.
