What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
The course load is enough to keep you busy but not excessive to break your back. The teachers are all really helpful and willing to work with you.
Desiree from Covington, LA
If you study and manage your business correctly you'll be successful. If you get off track academically you could possibly be placed on academic probation, which may jeopardise your reception of certain scholarships.
La'Kendria from Natchitoches, LA
Academics on campus is taken very seriously. In my opinion, most students focus on studying, attending class, and doing homework on a daily basis. There is also plenty of opportunities for students to get help if they lack in some subjects. Lastly if students need advising on classes Academic Advisers are available during the week.
Adrianna from Shreveport, LA
I attend the Scholars honors program, so if you are looking for a challenging academic program, this is the one for you. It contains some of the greatest professors around, and with its small class setting you will not have to worry about being just another face.
Travis from Brentwood, TN
how hard the classes are genuinely depend on what classes you take.
Angela from Walker, LA
Northwestern tests you with your first year and first couple of weeks of your classes to see where you stand o help figure out what is required to push you to where you need to be.
