NWSCC is the perfect size if you're looking for a college that is not too big or too busy. It has the potential to be a thriving school, but it does not seem to have enough funding going towards the college. Very outdated inside and out along with very limited resources and staff. The Nursing program however is top in the state and you can't beat that for price and short time of schooling.
This college has amazing people and teachers who care about their students. If help is needed, then any staff member you approach will be more than happy to help or point you in the direction of someone who can.
