Northwest is amazing! The teachers really care about what they want for you to get out of going to college and want to prepare you for bigger and better things. The teachers actually care about you and want what is best for you but still letting you get to know yourself. They prepare you for what to expect in your years at Northwest. They also teach you about what to expect from universities for those that want to move on and further their education. The best part about Northwest college is they want you to take advantage of all the resources that they offer, such as the TRIO program, TRIO is probably the best thing ever invented. Everyone at Northwest from the students to the faculty are amazing people and I am so glad to attending Northwest.
Review Northwest College - Wyoming
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!
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.
