I loved the personal connections, the attention and the welcoming atmosphere I got here! It was great


Alumnus - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I think NHIA was a fantastic school. The small number of students there allows you to really connect with your professors and create the opportunities you really want. They have fantastic teachers, and a very wonderful, close atmosphere. But like anything, education is really what you make it! A degree at NHIA is not a recipe for a dream job. I worked very hard when I was there, stayed in touch with professors afterwards, and had amazing results!
