The University of Northwestern in St. Paul is a Christian, liberal arts university established north of St. Paul in the town of Rosewood. Along with traditional coursework, undergraduate students at UNW are also required to attend a daily chapel program and earn a minor in Bible studies. Academics, student life, and community activities at the college are all centered around the university’s evangelical spirituality. While UNW is located near the metropolitan city of Minneapolis, the campus itself showcases a wooded, lakeside landscape with classical architecture to promote peaceful student living.

Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Summing up Northwestern College in three sentences is a difficult task, because the college is so outstanding. Besides the gorgeous campus and exceptional programs, Northwestern offers the most personable and helpful staff and students. Every person on campus, whether they are administration or the student themselves, are down to earth and ready to help at any moments, making the school that much more inviting.
Grace from Hastings, MN
At Northwestern, I am strongly encouraged to get the most out of my college years. I participate in athletics (both official and intramurals) and work in admissions as a tour guide. I also have loved the academic side of things and really appreciate the great relationship the professors have with the students.
