I really enjoyed the curriculum. It was setup for me to succeed as a working professional. I was able to complete 9 credits a semester, one class at a time (each 5-6 weeks). Highly recommend!

Northwest Nazarene University has a personal approach. Every person I have been in contact with was kind, helpful, and quick to respond. Thus far I've only taken one course but in this one course, the professor was open to discussing different perspectives. Discussing different perspectives is of great importance to me in furthering my education. I have been pleasantly pleased with Northwest Nazarene University.
I went to Northwest Nazarene University a couple of years ago when my sister graduated from NNU. The whole campus was beautiful. When I was at NNU, I got to take a tour to the different departments and got to meet a few of the professors. Everyone that I met there very nice and answered all the questions that I had. The food was also very good, it was better than some of the other campus food I have eaten. Another thing I really like about NNU is that you feel safe when you’re just walking around campus. They have a good security team that do their job very well and not let random people on campus.
