Overall Rating

Northwest has a beautiful campus and is well maintained. Living options are extensive, including four different dorm halls, on campus and off campus apartments. there are many clubs you can join; almost anything you could think of, it's offered. The professors are friendly and will go out of their way to get you the resources you need to succeed. Northwest offers free tutoring, along with a study center for extra help. The meal plan is affordable, having a cafe as well as a dinning hall. Northwest has two gyms, one with a rock climbing wall with equipment you can check out with just a fifty dollar despot. You can check out bikes, canoes, kayaks, and sport equipment. I've never seen a university, let along a community college offer so much!
