Northwest Mississippi Community College Reviews

268 reviews
All Categories
Northwest Mississippi community College is a junior college that gives local mississippi residents the opportunity to begin their college education without the distance education or expense of a university. While being an affordable option, there are components of Northwest that need to be refined and updated. Some of these components are as follows: better parking for commuter students, increased knowledge and training of advisors to assist students in preparing to transfer to a university, and making the registration process easier for new students. Overall, I had an average experience at Northwest and am happy I chose such an affordable, local option, but would like to see these improvements made for the sake of future students and alumni alike.
Review Your College
My only experience at Northwest was when I went on a college tour. At first I was iffy about the school, but after the visit, I actually liked it. It's cheaper than starting out at a university and all I'm doing is getting my easy classes out of the way. I feel like I can get to know the teachers freely because its not that many students that attend the school. 6000 students isn't bad, but I feel like I would be able to develop a strong relationship with the teachers and I would be able to get the help I need.
As a high school senior, I was unsure about which school I wanted to attend. A lot of my friends ended up going straight to four-year universities, but I wanted to do what would be best for me financially as I did not want to begin stacking up on student loans. I ended up getting a full-tuition paid scholarship to Northwest Mississippi Community College, and I can honestly say that going to this school was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've had wonderful teachers who are passionate about their subjects and actually want to help you succeed and learn. Not just pass the class, but LEARN. I've had a great experience here, and I'd recommend this school to anyone!
