For a small private school the staff is a highlight. The school hires good professors and they really challenge you. I feel as if I have learned a lot in a variety of different classes that I thought I would just breeze by. The small campus and small student population gives for a good sense of community that lead to knowing everyone. Everyone is so friendly and you can always say hi and get a bright happy hello back. If future college students were looking for a place to go, and they wanted a small school, I would recommend every time.
Review Northwest Christian University
So far my experience with this university overall has been over satisfactory. The staff that work there is friendly and genuinely dedicated to their work to help you succeed and make sure any of your questions are thoroughly answered. The students included have so far been very helpful and welcoming with open arms and are also very faith based. This school to me is unique because the staff I have met remembered who I specifically was when I had met them again and could recall our conversations, such as my admissions counselor Kassia Galick, which I have not experienced with other universities in Oregon. I am personally glad that I have chosen to purse my education with this college because of how dedicated they are to make you happy with your decisions and guide us not only with our careers, but faith as well. If I had to make a decision of where I could pursue my education once again I would defiantly choose NorthWest Christian University again because of the fact that they are all so caring and love to make you have the best experience, guidance and education possible.
I love northwest Christian university because of many reasons. Mostly because I can play basketball here, but also this school has the right education to set me up to be successful. All in all, northwest Christian is a great university.
