This college is amazing. There's a good range of classes for it being a small school, wonderful teachers, a gigantic library, and helpful, cheerful staff everywhere. Oh, and the food is awesome, in the cafeteria and in the vending machines! I've had such a good time at this sweet school.
Review Your College
Northwest Florida State is a small college located in the center of a little bit bigger town of Niceville. Since it's not a huge university, teachers know you on a first name basis and really interact with you during each class. I always feel safe walking from class to class or leaving because it seems like every time I walk outside and turn a corner a campus police officer is nearby ready to assist anyone. There are very few sports teams due to the population of the college but the men's and women's basketball, baseball, and softball teams all excel due to the commitment of the players and coaches. The campus itself has a mix of personalities where on one side of campus is a more nature oriented section with open areas and pine trees, while on the other are delicately placed statues and fountains giving it an artistic feel. All in all this is a great area to spend two years then transfer or stay all four years and be able to stay close to home in a more comfortable environment.
My experience at NFSC was a wonderful experience; small campus where teachers can dedicate more one on one time with thier students. The quality of teaching was outstanding and the staff was always helpful, very corteous. The curriculum was well rounded to prepare students for the future. It became a four year college while I was still there earning accreditation for Nursing and Project Management. I would love to see them provide more bachelor's degree like computer science, Information technology, and other careers on demand.
