I have loved my time at National Park College! The teachers and students have made going to the school a joy. I am excited that they are expanding and growing when they have added a student center and now they are building Dogwood Hall, a dorm hall. I am disappointed I will have to move on, but satisfied with my time at National Park College.

The President's scholarship really takes the pressure off, financially speaking. It is super easy to win and apply too. The professors really care about your success and future. The college is really taking efforts to improve itself. They are building dorms. They recently built a new student commons, so everything is starting to become really new and modern. I did; however, have to fight them over my scholarship and what it covers. It got resolved in the end. Their finance and scholarship division in general is poor, but their other services are really helpful. There career serveries, in particular, are happy to help and really try to meet you half-way.
In my short time at NPC I enjoyed learning under professors, academic advisors and my peers. Obtaining my Associates Degree in Liberal Arts was a stepping stone to transfer to 4-year Universities/Colleges. Close to home and not too big for a fresh high school graduate. This is the perfect, affordable college to attend for those that know what profession they will go into and definitely for those students like me that didn't know what they wanted to pursue. You will make great relationships that will leave a lasting impression and last a lifetime.
