When researching colleges When researching a college I must confess the first thing I consider is the location. Being a single parent with a limited income, I need to be able to drive the shortest distance necessary to attend college classes. The extreme price of gas has limited my options to the closest college campus. Northwest Florida State College has several campuses located throughout the Pan Handle, which makes it possible for students like me to attend. My second consideration is the cost. While I qualify for assistance and am able to get student loans, I want the best qualified, most affordable education I can receive. NWFSC meets both criteria. In comparison with other local colleges, NWFSC is ranked amongst them and is affordable. I am in my Freshman year at NWFSC. My professors have exceeded my expectations of what I believed a college professor to be. NWFSC professors' love for their subjects reflects in their classrooms. I feel comfortable approaching my professors to help me when I do not understand their lesson plan. My professors have all extended their time past class time, which is reassuring and comforting. My experience at NWFSC has truly been a blessing.
