Northwest-Shoals Community College Reviews
I was very nervous for the transition from high school to college. I wasn’t sure as to what I was wanting to major in, so I chose to go to Northwest Shoals to get some basic classes out of the way. It was a very good choice. The overall atmosphere of the school was very comforting and my first day was not nerve racking at all! All the professors were extremely nice and helpful! Northwest Shoals is a great college for beginners!
There are good teachers at this school that can help you out when you need advice, answers to problems you're having in class, etc. You have to be willing to ask them questions and put yourself out there. Get to know your classmates and find out the best teachers to take for the classes you need, and then utilize the tools that they offer on campus to get connected with different social groups, advisors, tutoring, etc. You do have to put in a little extra work to get the information you need, but it will be worth it.
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.
