Allison

I have had a wonderful experience at NWACC! If you're looking to be prepared upon transfer to a four year institution this is the place to be! There are numerous opportunities to get involved on campus, or within the community. The majority of their professors are top of the line. They also offer several certificate programs, such as PTA, that are nationally ranked.

Garon

NWACC is a smaller college, but that's an advantage. The small sizes allow for more personal lessons from the professors, and there is a wide enough variety of classes. The college has adequate art and theater facilities, but maybe not large enough for someone who is aiming for a career in art. The location is great, and there are campuses spread out around the Northwest Arkansas area, so everyone is within driving distance of some of the classes provided. Overall, I'd recommend NWACC, though preferably for those who want to move on to another college to advance their education.

McKenzie

Great school set on teaching students the greatness of learning and helping them to achieve their future goals however they can. Teachers are great and students are easy to talk to. Help is always given when needed. They are a little pushed with time, but always try to clear a spot for you to come in and take all the time you need.

Adrianna

NWACC is a great school, i was originally against going to NWACC because it was a community college but it's much better than I expected. The facilty member are usually very helpful, the classes are worthwhile, and the community is welcoming. NWACC provides the answer to any question fairly quickly. This school is a great way to ease yourself into the college world and to get your associates or trade certificate cheaper.

    I really like the smaller classes this school provides. There are more opportunities for a teacher to get to know you and further assist you on any problems you may have a with a class. The teachers have more office hours than larger universities which allows students to contact them outside of class.
