I am on pace to graduate from Northwest State this year and it has been a great experience. I have learned so much from my instructors that I believe I won't have a problem finding a job in this crazy world we live in. The class's are great and they focus on my career that I want to get into, which is going to benefit my family and I in the years to come. Thank you Northwest State for helping me get my life back in order.

I love taking classes at NSCC. I didn't know how well I would fit in since I am not so social, but I have met so many great people. All of my teachers have been so nice and willing to help with anything. The teachers are understanding of how hard college is. They do everything possible to help. The tutors are amazing also. When I had a tutor, she helped me so much with learning and remembering things!

After being married and having two children, I went back to school and earned my Associates degree in Early Childhood. NSCC was very supportive of the non-traditional student and was a strong influence in my getting my BS in the same field. I have been working in Early Childhood for almost 20 years now and owe much of it to NSCC. Thank You!!

As a non-traditional student with high anxiety of coming back to school (ecspecially college), NSCC helped me transition smoothly.

I am now considering going for a Bachelors Degree.

Northwest State Community College is a wonderful college to attend. The faculty and staff are very knowledgeable and kind, and the learning experience I received far exceeded my expectations. Also, the nursing program is a exceptional program and leaves students with the knowledge and confidence to practice at a ADN level proficiently and effectively. Also, the biggest benefit to NSCC was the cost and location. I live 8 minutes from campus and have zero student loans. Thanks NSCC!

I am in my 3rd year here at Northweststate. I have been very happy with my overall experience with Instructors and staff. The Instructors show compassion to the students as well as a passion for the subject that they teach. Any Instructor that I have or had has been more than willing to help in any way they could to get the point of the class across if some one wasn't quite understanding something. northweststate is closer to my house than any other Community College and I chose to come here because of the higher standards that they hold.

This is roughly my 3rd year at Northwest State. It is close to my home and affordable. The instructors are easy to work with. I have had issues with the business office but as far as everything else is concerned, it is a decent school. I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering and I am about 8 classes away from finishing my Associates Degree. I would recommend Northwest State to others

I have been very fortunate to have compassionate teachers each class that make it their goal to help everyone understand the material and succeed. With the teachers encompassing such a positive attitude, they show that they are approchable and will do anything to help us as students secure a better future for ourselves.

This is my second semester at Northwest State and I've had nothing but good experiences here. The staff helped me out with the admissions process and applying for a scholarship. They also informed me about the resources available here, such as the library and the free tutoring services. The teachers and other staff are always friendly and ready to provide help wherever needed. Northwest State does a great job at providing a good, affordable education.

This is my second year at Northwest State and I really enjoy going here. My major is Mecanical Engineering and in our wing we have a lounge and it is nice and quiet. Northwest has almost everything for your education, from tutoring to finding a job. The best thing about Northwest is the cost. It is very cheap to get a degree. Northwest state wants to help me learn and since I have been here, I have learned a lot. If anyone is looking for a great education its a Northwest State Community College.

I've been a student here for two years now. It is very convenient because it is close to where I live. I have also been learning many new things during my time here. It has been a very positive experience, and I look forward to learning more things in the future.

Northwest State Community College is a great school. I have been attending classes here for several semesters and each one has been a positive experience. The teachers here are experienced, the classes are well-organized and challenging, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Without the great teachers and staff, I wouldn't be as far as I am now in my education. Northwest State Community College offers many great services and classes to help students succeed in their career. I am happy to go to a great college that really cares about my education.

I am a student at Northwest State Commuity College, and have had nothing but good experiences here. The teaching staff are knowledgable and very helpful. The class sizes are great for learning the material and sharing information, as well as getting your questions answered. It has good places to hang out and relax between classes. The only problem seems to be parking, at certain times there aren't enough spaces in the lot! It has recently set up a huge recycling program to help keep the campus green. There are more recycling containers than trash cans so that people can properly dispose of materials.

Being an older student ( 44 yrs old) I find most of the staff to be very helpful and nice.
\There does seem, however, to be a certain level of lacking in good communication and planning in the Financial Aid office and the Bookstore who ( waits until the last minute to make available the book lists that students need for their classes - this information should be available at least a month before the classes are scheduled to start!) seem to wait too long before publishing information and proper forms ( that they require us to fill out each semester) ready for the following school year or semester - mean while we students hurry up, do our taxes and complete our FAFSA renewals. So, in short, I see where these two departments of the college need to make some changes; get organized, and act ahead of the school's schedule so that they are not caught without the information and forms that the students are required to have.
I have found thus far that most of the instructors I have had are very helpful and always willing to explain things further.
My advisor Christine Robinson is always encouraging!

It was daunting going back to school at age ?? but my two children which graduated from Northwest State Community College encouraged me. The teaching staff has been exceptional. I am amazed at how many nontraditional students attend Northwest State Community College. The classes are the perfect size for ample learning and comprehension. I would recommend NWSCC to anyone thinking about returning to school.
