My time at UNWSP was nothing short of exceptional. I grew from a crazy, rebellious high school "boy" into a still-crazy and fun-loving man with a passion for Jesus Christ, family, church, community, and living life as an example of what His love looks like in the world.
The friends and relationships I made have been some of the richest of my life. The professors really care about the students in their classes, and even the support staff is there with the heart to serve the Lord through their work around campus.
I had a professor explain in detail that if making money is your only goal, college is not for you. (Live with your parents for 4 years rent free. Work at minimum wage and save it all without tuition. Retire a millionaire.) HOWEVER - if your goal of higher education is to grow as a person, and follower of the Lord, while also getting a degree that rocks and an education that is of outstanding caliber, then the University of Northwestern - St. Paul is for you!

Attending the University of Northwestern - St. Paul has got to be one of the best decisions I have made, it has changed my life. The combination of academics, Christ, friendships with faculty, student living, and sports makes looking forward to the end of summer...something you don't hear often!
This college is an excellent choice for all students who love the conservative Christian outlook and environment! All faculty and staff are very supportive, and you are constantly meeting new people! Knowing that you have common ground with everyone on campus by believing in Jesus Christ, both professors and students encourage and uplift you while you are growing in your faith and in your studies!
