I've had a good experience at NWACC. Honestly, I'm part of the Culinary Program, and so I'm not at the main campus much, except when I'm taking my core classes. My core class teachers were ok, but they weren't the best. My math teachers, were not good at all, but my English teachers were great! The Culinary Program is an amazing and awesome experience! I love going in and knowing that I'll be challenged and welcomed during my journey throught the program! I can't wait to teach my family all that there is to learn about cooking! Nevertheless, I think NWACC has a lot of potential, but it's not quite where it needs to be.

NWACC is a great school for incoming freshmen and returning students alike. They have a dedicated tutoring center ran by college faculty with Dr.'s degrees, and are experts in the subject matter you might be needing help with. Very friendly staff, and teachers will see to it that you are getting the education you need to succeed! The classes are smaller which is conducive for learning. Various on-campus events, clubs, and organizations that students are encouraged to participate in. Overall a great school that meets the budget!
I think this is a great college! It is not a University, but it is much cheaper and has very close to the same level of difficulty available as you would get in a larger university. Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) is a great starting point especially for nursing, engineering, physics, graphic design, and math majors. I have taken 67 credit hours here and one thing I like most about NWACC is that they try to base their curriculum on what the University of Arkansas uses since it is only half an hour away. They try to use the exact same book in Calculus and Physics for example. There is no housing so that is up to the student, but a large amount of students here either live with family still or live in a small apartment. The teachers here, especially in the lower level classes, are very kind and do their best to work with you. The upper level class professors also do their best to help you, but at the same time they don't cut you any slack.
