Northwest Nazarene University Reviews
Review Northwest Nazarene University
A lot of our sports teams are really good! Unfortunately, only a few athletic events each year have a high turnout. This is something being looked into by our athletic department, admissions department, and marketing department, and will hopefully turn around soon!
NNU is the perfect experience for myself and those around me. The community is easily the best part. I know that students of many backgrounds and personalities all find their place here. There are social events nearly every night, so I always have an opportunity to connect with my peers. I love the way NNU includes everyone!
This is a Christian college in Idaho. So as you expect, it's mostly lily-white. However, the Hispanic population has grown a lot in the time I've been here. We also have some African-American students and some Asian exchange students. While the school is pretty white, most students here are pretty accepting of others and quick to call out racism- with the exception of some assholes, but they exist everywhere. Politically, the staff are moderate-to-liberal and the students are a very mixed bag. VERY diverse economic backgrounds. Nearly everyone here is a professing Christians, but there are a few agnostics and they are treated with respect. Sexual orientation is still a pretty controversial subject on campus. I have heard of some openly LGBT students being bullied or judged, but for the most part respected.
