STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

IVY'S NORTHWEST NAZ EVAL :)

The softball program here has been getting better for the last couple of years and that is something that I wanted to be a part of. I was given the scholarship to come here so it made sense for me to go to NNU. I heard the community was a great thing to be a part of and the teacher to student ratio is nearly unbeatable. Teachers are very approachable and want to help you be the best version of you.


Course Curriculum - 

It is a liberal arts school so it feels like you have to take a lot of unnecessary classes for your major, however, it is good information to have. The major related courses are awesome and super fun to be in. I feel like you learn a lot and they prepare you for the future well.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

EVERYTHING IS GREAT HONESTLY.

The community as a good fit for me. I was looking for a school that would match my values, morals, and beliefs and this school was the perfect fit. They hold me accountable in all I do and everyone I've met is great encouragers.


Course Curriculum - 

I do think that curriculum could be updated or examined more closely as it is evolving quickly, but I do appreciate the effort and work, the school puts into educating us as well as they can and preparing us for the work field.
