Northwestern College is a place that is focused on getting me educated and ready for the real world. The faculty and staff are passionate, encouraging, and helpful. This combined with a beautiful campus and awesome fellow students make Northwestern College a great learning experience.
Joseph from Eagan, MN
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.
