The community is extremely supportive of the college students. They provide free meals and millions of dollars in scholarships to the students. The businesses provide internships. The community also attends sporting events, concerts, plays and other student events on campus. The community also sponsors the athletic teams and concert series with donations. The college is located near a German Prisoner of War Camp, a museum, Great Salt Plains Lake and Refuge, the Alabaster Caverns and the Little Sierra State Park.

There is always something to do in the community. It is a safe environment to learn.
Review Northwestern Oklahoma State University
Except for a few bad teachers I'm so excited that I decided to be a student at this college! The dorms are definitely old school and the cafe isn't the best place to eat. Almost every teacher that I've had has been extremely wonderful and understanding!
NWOSU is a small, friendly college. They have some of the best curriculums in the state but they are not expensive. Though small, NWOSU had a lot of student activities and groups to join.
