Review University of Northwestern - St. Paul
My experience at Northwestern has allowed me to grow as an athlete, a student, and a follower of Christ. I am challenged in my classes, and was able to connect well with many people on campus. Joining the soccer team for all four years allowed me to make incredible friends and be mentored by coaches who sought to see me grow personally and athletically. The opportunity to participate Campus Outreach ministry on campus really shaped who I am as a believer in Jesus. Although it is necessary to pursue Christ as an individual, Northwestern does a great job of providing lots of resources for students to know Jesus more.
The campus at the University of Northwestern is absolutely lovely. The grounds and buildings are well kept and sightly and have a peaceful character to them, and the all the dorms provide quite enough space for comfortable living. The campus itself is easy to navigate, and the main buildings have underground tunnels connecting them that come in handy during the cold winter months! Northwestern has a strong atmosphere of Christian fellowship, and there is usually an event or two to attend from week to week. However, the weekends are often quite a bit quieter than the week days due to many students leaving campus.
