Northwestern Oklahoma State University Reviews
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.
When I went to Northwestern Oklahoma State University I loved the campus. It was not super big but it also was not super small. Pretty great size. I also loved how they have a football and soccer team, my two favorite sports. They also have the most important thing for me, my major, nursing. I heard that they had a pretty good nursing program. Another thing is the people are extremely nice and friendly.
First year student and college athlete. So far it’s amazing! Staff is absolutely fantastic. Small rural college in a cute town. Not much to do in town but tons of activities through the college
