I attended this college right out of high school and loved the atmosphere, but was alittle home sick and burned out on school, so I took a 7 year break. I am now taking online courses through this college and I am very satisfied. The online classes make it easy for me to stay out home with my two girls and are flexible enough to work around my busy schedule. The teachers respond quickly to emails and offer ample material for help. I love the fact textbooks and computers are included in tuition.

Overall, Northwest is a great campus. The students and faculty take much pride in their school. It is an amazing place, and is definitely a home away from home. The teachers know what they are doing, and there is always something that is being improved. I also enjoy that when you are in town it is completely green. Everyone is a Northwest fan and shows their spirit day in and day out. One of my utmost favorite things about Northwest is the football team. We are currently the MIAA Champions! We went 11-0 this season, and the awesome part, is that student tickets for home games are FREE! This is a great thing because at other schools tickets can get very pricey. The night life here is also very interesting. At 19 you can get in to the bars, so if you are old enough it is definitely the place to go, especially Molly's. If you are considering Northwest make sure you are prepared for small town life. You can drive down Business 71 in less than 15 minutes.
