What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great college for someone who needs to get into the hang of things! If your plan is to go straight into a university I highly recommend checking out nwacc first. I enojed this community college much more than my previous one. The professors care!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

What would I tell myself and everyone around me if I could go back in time? Well, there are two pieces of advice I wish I had known. One, the friends your graduate with will not stay your friends. The people you expected to always be there for you will be off finding themselves and discovering independence and I suggest you do the same as well. Your first year of college is a rollercoaster ride of emotion. Your new friends dont know you well enough to understand and your old friends are too busy to run to. The second thing I wish I had been told is that it is hard. You won't know how to pay for it all, you won't know how to keep your grades up, and you wont know what to do with all of your independence. You will make mistakes, you will break down, youll miss home. But you know what? It gets better. Somehow youll survive. You will make your payments, you will pay for your meals, youll survive the hangovers... youll be happy. You just cant be afraid of the future. You have to go in knowing youll come out aive.

What kind of person should attend this school?

You should attend this school if you are wanting to stay close to home, did not get financial aid, and are not wanting to be 40,000 in debt. This school is pretty inexpensive and that was great for me. This is also a great starter school for anybody who is afraid that college is not for them, or anybody who is not sure what they want to major in. You can take some random classes for a lot cheaper than you could anywhere else.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you have the money to attend a more expensive school, that is what you should do. I am an over achiever, planner, and have big goals. This is not the ideal school for me.

The location of NWACC is what makes me like it as much as I do. It's local and it feels local.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Kevin, I know you were good in all your classes and you were also bored in some of them. You are tired of learning after twelve years and you have already decided to join the military for three years. The military part is the best plan you could have made and I'm proud of you for making it, but do not forget how much you enjoyed learning, at least in most of your classes. When you go to college keep in mind that you have an end goal and all of your classes will be necessary in order to give you the knowledge you need to achieve that goal. You need to try and understand that four years (or more) may seem like more school than you can handle but there is an entire lifetime to live once you get out and it will be amazing and rewarding. Please use the stamina and discipline you will learn as a Combat Medic to apply yourself to achieving the goals you want, all of which you deserve.

What's unique about your campus?

NWACC has a wide selection of options when it comes to support for students who work and have families. The campus is easy to get to and the stff is always friendly and helpful.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Forget about that college, go to NWACC and don't waste so much time getting there!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Those that are on a tight budget, and looking for smaller class sizes for more one on one time.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Where I sitting next to my once eighteen year old self in high school I would stress the importance of, not only being familiar with my major and the classes I must take, but that of actively knowing them. Had I better informed myself with the types of classes I was to take and the timeline they should follow in order to achieve effectiveness in my first two years, I would have been better prepared for my transfer to a four year university and, hence, been more on track with my Bachelor's in Biology.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I would have wished to know that there is such a thing as blackboard and that, even before the first day of class, some professors will post homework assigments . This would have helped me keep myself updated with my classes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I have found that the most frustrating thing is that my school hardly gives you much options to pay your bill balance; if you do not pay by a certain date you are dropped. I understand this is necessary yet they should allow a review of special circumstances and perhaps extend the date.

Describe the students at your school.

One thing I love about my classmates is that we are all diverse (age, ethnicity and different educational goals).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I have attended to both U of A - Fayetteville and NWACC. I love both schools because of the values they teach about diversity and leadership. I have always been a great influence on diversity by teaching others my Vietnamese culture. Through education of these schools, people can see how important diversity is in an environment. I've learned through experience that a leader should be open minded and be able to take criticism. We draw strength to continue through our mistakes and passion for leadership.
