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 Northwest Florida State College
I like the professors in the math department, English department, and business department, and Science department. The history department has a poor American history professor and the college did not offer another American history professor. The camp-us s open but safe since they have a police academy and active police officers on site. I hope they improve some of their programs and hirer better qualified counselors.
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.
