What Students Are Saying

2.86 Average Rating
On a campus surrounded by nature and great company one can always find the peace and quiet needed to get focused on their classwork. While still getting the opportunity to get in inolved in student activities given the need and there are an endless supply of fun and entertaining things to do after classes on the weekends. When juggling the class work load and extracurriculars the campus also has many tutors and groups specializing in whatever is needed.

Many people say that community college is a waste of time or exactly like high school. Northwest Vista College is nothing like that, while the classes are small, it allows for better one on one time with the teachers to ensure success. The classes are much more difficult than high school and their degrees are accepted by most colleges in Texas for transfer programs.
