Amazing school! Everyone is so friendly, the professors try their hardest to work with each individual student and make sure they are understanding the curriculum. I've never been to a class in which I felt no one cared about my education. I am proud to call myself a Ranger. The campus is taken care of and is absolutely beautiful. The dorms are extremely nice in comparison to many colleges I looked at before attending NWOSU.

So far, I have enjoyed the atmosphere of this university and my time here as a student has been a great experience. Since the school is quite small, classes are smaller which allows for a more personal environment in the classroom. I am a shy person so asking questions in a large classroom is horrifying to me, but in a smaller class, I am more comfortable with asking for help during class which allows me to fully understand the topics.
The small town community grew to become my home. I was a student athlete so, I received a lot of love and support from everyone. It’s a school who believes in tradition but is steady growing and becoming more diverse.
