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.

Everyone has been very helpful and insightful. I've gotten so much help and care from staff, professors and advisers. It is a close nit community that helps support the students and lifts them up when needing help and guidance. There are many programs in place to help students succeed. The professors and advisers are very caring and understanding. Great environment.
There were fun events every week. Classes were never bigger than 50 people but were often around 8-15. Professors tough and pushed hard but were also very understanding and helpful. There weren't many clubs for students, and it was difficult to get them going sometimes.
