Ethan - 05/20/2023

Overall, the college is pretty decent. In a sense, this is more of a community college, though this college does offer degrees over an associate's degree. Food is pretty decent, and the classes are as well. There are less clubs than a traditional 4-year college, but the clubs and organizations are good. This is a good college to go to if you live locally in the Florida Panhandle.

Jordan - 05/04/2023

I would recommend it for undergraduates who need to get their AA or for people who don't want big class sizes. It doesn't give much of a college sense or a big sense of family. It feels like people are there just to get their degree and go. I was dual enrolled whenever I started and it was perfect for a high school student who was a little more advanced than his other class mates.

Anthony - 04/09/2023

Overall, a very well rounded College with many paths to choose from. A great community that people can really grow in and thrive. The people I attend with are great people and are very well spoken and intelligent. I enjoy the classes I take and the professors make it their goal to help students in any way possible. I have much respect for the professors and faculty at Northwest Florida State College.

Jamir - 09/28/2020

When I first thought about life after high school, I was quite terrified. I had no idea what to expect, save for the movies and television shows I had watched. So far, I have enjoyed my experience at Northwest Florida State College. There is a calm air to the school, one that makes education as a priority feel very easy to accomplish.

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

    The main concept of childhood life is growth. Throughout my childhood and into my later teen year I feel that I did just that. Knowing what I know about college life and making the transition, if I could go back and give myself advice, I would say, "Keep up the hard work!" This for the simple fact that from my middle school years, I watched myself grow in terms of maturity and educational standards. From the "punk kid" years of a middle school child, to the respectable graduate level of a hard-working high school senior, I can say that I did it! I grew! I got myself off the skateboard, the poor study habits, the desire of going out every night and into the life of a good graduate. I went from skateboarding with friends at night to studying for my AP Music Theory, AP Lit and Lang, and AP Statistics Exams. I went from going to the movies on weekends to staying up at the school with the National Honor Society and making sure things were done at school. And I even went from 'punk kid' music, to blaring the streets with the drumline!

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

    I moved away from Niceville when i graduated, where the college is located. I wish somehow now i could of seen a way to stay, but its not easy to live alone and go to school. Saving money and apllying more for loans, grants, scholarships, schools, sure would of been an upside if i was thinking about it. I just overlooked the fine details and when i realized its not going to be easy or cheap, i bit the bulet and went with it.

    Recently, the school has started charging students to print per page. When I first began at this college, printing was free.

    I think NWFSC is a great college; my professors are intelligent, and very polite (if you show effort in the classes, of course). They also make themselves available outside of class for tutoring. The student clientele in the daytime consist mostly of kids in high school participating in the Collegiate High School program. In the evenings, most of the students are active duty or reserve military personnel.
