Northwestern State University of Louisiana Reviews

If you are looking for a school where you are a person that is known by all your professors as an individual and not a number then NSU is the school for you! The professors here are very helpful in the class and out. While the cafeteria food is not always the best, the student life is amazing. There is always something taking place on campus, and events for all interest. Fork'em Demons! 😈

Great online and low-residence programs. Less writing and research in the visual arts programs. The teachers are well qualified and very willing and quick to answer questions and help solve problems.
Northwestern State University offers diverse students a clean and safe campus to further their education and become the best vision of themselves. #forkemdemons
