Northwest College - Wyoming Reviews

I really enjoy school in Powell, WY. This college is one of the best schools in Wyoming. Everyone here wants you to receive a great education and they will help you to make sure that you do. I love the location of Northwest also. There are so many outdoor opportunities for when it is warm. But there also isn't much to do when it is cold and snowless outside. So, If I could change some things with the college I would ask for more things to do and for better food. The food here isn't terrible but it isn't really great either!
Review Your College
I have recently completed my first semester at Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming. I am majoring in the photographic communications course where in the short time that I have been here I have already seen huge improvements in my photography skills. The faculty that I have met throughout the college such and in the photo department and business office have always been helpful making sure you are getting what is the best for you and NWC. For a small 2-year college in a very rural state it offers high quality education, the photography program is currently ranked 8th in the nation.
All of the teachers and faculty want you to succeed. I was really struggling with figuring out where to go and what to do, but the faculty helped me figure it out. Don't be afraid to ask questions when starting at a new campus, everyone has been so friendly and willing to help!
