Northwest-Shoals Community College Reviews
The program I am is is great. It is fully accredited, which is important! Very fulfilling courses. The instructors have been incredibly helpful along the way. The campus is beautiful - very neat, clean, and safe. I love my college.
Northwest Shoals is a great two year college. I highly recommend high school graduates to consider NWSCC. Starting out at a community college may really help one get the college feel. Also, for those who are struggling to figure out their major, NWS is great to help you decide. If you are much older than a high school graduate and want to go back to college/never been to college, you will feel right at home at NWS. They make sure to show you every option. The staff is outstanding. They make sure you know where to go, what is coming up, and always are there for one-on-one time. The only change I would like to see at NWS is bringing back their athletics. That would attract more students by playing a sport there and by giving them something to do.
Northwest Shoals Community College was a great school to start at, all the professors are easy to work with and the cost to attend is very reasonable compared to most universities. The only thing I would like to see change is the availability of classes, there are a lot of things that are not offered at night.
