National Park is the perfect place for me to get my degree in Elementary Education. I'm a fulltime nontraditional student, working two jobs, and taking care of my wife and 9 month old baby girl. The professors are knowledgeable, approachable, and there to help whenever I reach out. National Park was the best option for me to go back to school because they really worked with me on my schedule. Most of the buildings and facilities are brand new and really nice. It's a quite campus and I enjoy that. I went two different traditional colleges and was very involved in the college scene lifestyle. Now that I am an adult with a wife and family, I really appreciate just focusing on getting my education. I would really appreciate if I was chosen for the scholarship! My girls are counting on me! We struggle to make ends meet because we are paying out of pocket for my education. Thank you for your consideration.


National Park College is a great college. I cannot really say that it is my favorite college since it is the only one that I have ever attended, but I have a hard time imagining things getting any better than this. The instructors are reliable, the classes are fun, and there are many activities to participate in, as well as a wide variety of classes to take.


Overall, it is a good school that is close to home. It is more affordable than other places I have considered and a good start to getting my degree. They've recently opened a new student center with new meal plans-which I'm looking forward to. They are also in the process on building on campus housing.


National Park College is a great place for those wanting to begin their journey to earn a degree. The instructors and administration are extremely helpful. There is a tutoring center on campus that is always staffed. It has been my experience that the instructors are more that happy to assist you during office time with course work you may be struggling with. I believe that National Park College is the ideal beginning to the college experience. NPC is always looking for insight from their students and faculty to better their campus experience for future students. I love NPC.
