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!

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'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 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 love going to school at NSCC. Everyone there has been totally encouraging & helpful. I love that I don't get treated different for being a non traditional student.

I have found Northwest Community College to be a great place to be. With the economy the way it is and the lack of jobs, it has offered me an opportunity to retrain in a different area in hopes of finding something else.
The instructors have been great. It is a clean facility and quite accomodating.

Northwest State is a tremendous asset to the people of the tri-state area. The facilities are top notch, the programs of study are very strong...but their best asset is the group of people who work hard every day for the students. The commitment is easy to see. It makes my job promoting businesses of the area much easier. Northwest State is there for current and potential businesses.

Community college is a great opportunity for people who don't have the money to go to a 4 year university. I have a lot of friends who started at Northwest and finished their degree without having to get a lot of loans.

After raising a family and having a career in management and sales, it was time to go back to school and prepare for the second career. Northwest seemed like the best choice for me. I looked at other colleges and they just were not what I was looking for. I wanted to be more than a number and I wanted smaller classes, Northwest has both. The Staff has been helpful and I have enjoyed the classes. I have completed online and in class room courses, both have been well formated and presented. I am looking forward to receiving my degree and becoming an RN, Northwest has helped me on my way.

I have been attending Northwest State Community College for 2 years now and I love the atmosphere here. Classes are small enough to get one-on-one with the teacher. You do not feel overwhelmed here with gigantic classrooms with 100 students in them. NSCC also offers a lot of different help options to its students in order to help them succeed and they are free services. I love NSCC and what everyone here has done for me.

NorthwestState Community College plays a vital role in preparing students of all ages to participate in the development of Northwest Ohio's economy. In addition to providing a solid educational start to students just out of high school, they also train workers displaced from their jobs and people who want to re-enter the work force. The faculty and staff were very helpful and professional when I have taken classes there.

Community college creates the opportunity for many people to get further education that may otherwise not have the chance. I work with a community college locally and am always thrilled to see the ambition and drive of the students!
