Northwest Christian University Reviews

This school has changed my heart in such a humbling way, with the communication of professors to students, to the activites the school does, and the desire the school has to be part of the community they are in. This school takings pride in being in and with the community that is surrounded by. The thing that I would love to change is probably the public transportation the school does not offer. Since Eugene is a town with two universities the public transportation is a big key for people to get around but Northwest Christian University does not offer any discounts or free bus transportation. This is something I would like to see change.

coming in as a freshman out of state is very difficult, you know not knowing anyone, basically in a foreign place, but what made it easier was how nice and welcoming they were towards us. The only thing I would like to see change is the food, it’s so repetitive!
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.
