What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
After struggling for some time to get settled in to a college and call it home, I have finally found that at NU; the school is small, but large at it's core. Their mission is simple: to carry the call in ministry through education and their academic program is both invigorating and challenging. I have been here one year and the experience has been phenomenal; between the educational experience and the strong sense of community, one cannot go wrong at a place like this.
Monique from Kirkland, WA
Even though I will begin in a month I've been impressed with the college so far.
