I went back to school 17 yrs. after high school. I feared of going to class and being sorrounded by students almost half my age. This was not the case. The staff truly does care about us individually, and go out of there way to ensure a great educational experience. Last semester I had to leave town for a family emergency the week before finals. All of my instructors went way above the call of duty and not only allowed me to make up my work, but helped me along and answered all of my questions and concerns. I recommend Northwest State to anyone and everyone who needs to improve their situation or get an edge in today's employment environment.

I started off at Defiance College first and I hated it there. When I transferred to Northwest State, I instantly knew it was the college for me.

This new building will help benefit my learning experience as a nursing student. I can't wait to start using it. This is a fantastic idea!

My experience at NSCC has been a great one. I took their LPN course and am now applying for the LPN-RN Transition course. Without the care of the instructors I wouldn't have the knowledge and be able to apply it in my work.

I have taken classes over the last 30 yrs, most recently last summer to update my knowledge of Quickbooks. The education experience has been very helpful in obtaining a job and over the years to advance my career.
It has been good to see the college growing in size & educational opportunities - keep it up!

NWSCC is helping me fulfill my goal of acquiring a Associate Degree in Nursing. I am a returning student after many years away from school. I can take many classes also that will be transferable to another school to continue my goal for a BA. Thanks NWSCC

I'm a student and I would like to see more study areas for NSCC students. It would be so much easier for those of us who have kids in to be able to go to a nice quite place to get our homework done so that at home we can focus on our kids.

I am a student at NSCC and this money would be put to good use. NSCC needs more room for their students to sit and study!

I've lived near Northwest for most of my life so when the opportunity came up for me to take classes there to further my career I jumped at on it. I am very pleased with the quality of the classes I am taking so far and I expect that the rest of my classes will be no different.

I am not sure if this money is need for a student lounge, this money would be better spent on energy conservation on the new building being built at NSCC. Ideas where given to make improvements to the building before it was being built to save energy, but nothing happend. The failure to look for the long term savings will cost more in the long run. We cannot continue to build buildings that are not energy efficient and expect to be considered a "green college." To meet the new standerds the same old ways need to change.

I started at NSCC after moving to the area. I'd heard wonderful things about their nursing program & decided it would be a good fit for me. It is a challenge, but I know it will be worth it in the end. NSCC has a great reputation & I will be proud to be a graduate. I'm looking forward to the new Allied Health building for myself and the new students who will be going through the program in the future.

I am a 40 year old student returning to school. Due to the economy being in a slump the way it is I NEED to get a degree just to be considered for jobs in todays market. I am very grateful to Northwest State Community College for being here to help me when I need it the most. NSCC is a wonderful place to learn and I do not know what I would do without the friendly staff and fellow students. It is nice having such a great college close to where I live.

NSCC is a wonderful institution and tremendous asset to our surrounding community. The education they provide students of all ages is inspiring. NSCC is the educational anchor for our small corner of the State of Ohio.

Northwest State has made a dramatic improvement in my life. They have allowed me to stay a full time employee and a full time mother of two, by their branching colleges. If it wasn't for them I probably would never have been able to achieve so much. My family is proud of me for furthering my education. I am so glad their our smaller community colleges in my area that can offer so much!
