I really like NVC as far as the classes and professors. They need work on being able to speak with an advisor, their calendars are always full and that’s unacceptable when your trying to register for classes. Sometimes finding a class is difficult. Hire more staff!

My overall experience at Northwest Vista was great! I spent an entire year of college here and made straight A's the entire time. The professors truly care about you and do everything in their power to make the information being taught to you as clear as possible. The library is a great place to study at, or even if you just need something printed out. I used their printers almost every day it is only 5 cents a copy. There are several tutoring services available and writing centers for any help needed with essays. I truly enjoyed going to this college, and learned so much while I was here!
I moved out of state to go to college and decided to start my education with Northwest Vista. One of the things I love about the college is the small classrooms and amazing professors. Also, with me working full-time, the night classes are extremely helpful! The staff does a wonderful job getting me ready for each semester and I appreciate how clean they keep the college, inside and out! I have saved so much money by attending Vista and getting my basics done versus at a University. I highly recommend Alamo Colleges!
