This university is an excellent place to learn and grow. Every professor and staff member is interested in your success. The student to teacher ratio is a small amount, which allows them more time to help when needed. Life on campus is also great. There are many services that are available to the all students. Everyone on campus is so friendly and welcoming. The campus itself is also beautiful. The community in Maryville is very proud of their Bearcats. It shows at sporting events, music events, Greek Life events, and more. Northwest is an amazing place to be!
