Megan - 11/17/2019

It's a great school for everyone. It is a safe campus; it is tobacco and alcohol free. The professors go out of their way to help each student. The food is good, and there are many fundraisers for each class/program. Everyone in the school, professors and students, support one another.

Rainy - 11/15/2019

My overall opinion of Northwest Mississippi Community College is pretty well. There are good parts, but there are also the bad parts. I believe the class sizes are great. It is like the size of high school classes. This makes it easier to get to know people and to get to know the teacher. Student involvement is also well. Many students play a sport or they are involved in some sort of club. There are a lot of students present for sporting events as well. The down fall is that most of the people are from around here. I personally went to high school with several people from this school. That almost makes it harder to have an actual college experience. I almost feel stuck in high school still. The town itself is also a downfall. It is a small, cute, little town. Most places are closed by ten at night. Five minutes down the road and you are no longer in Senatobia. Overall, I believe the school is a good first start to college for many people.

Akram - 04/27/2019

Excellent community college to start off.colleges charge around $1,000 for in-state tuition. Attending a community college can be a good way for students to ease into the world of higher education and learn at their own pace. I would definitely recommend it to anybody think about attending the campus:

Holly - 02/25/2019

I have been accepted to Northwest and have visited the campus several times, I am so excited to be a student in the fall. I knew Northwest was the school for me the minute i stepped on the campus, everyone was so friendly. A student gave me the tour and let me in on their honest opinion of the school. The campus is very nice and clean.

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

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say, "Live life on purpose". It is better to go to college right out of high school, work hard, give it your all and do not take breaks. Go straight through to each semester with the intent of making an "A" and not striving for a "B". If you work hard for your "B", celebrate that, but if you are capable of making an "A", acheive that. It is very difficult to get the courage, money and time to go back to school after an extended absence.

  6. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    I attended Northwest Community College because it was close to home and offered what I wanted and needed for my AA in Accountancy. I recently went back for a completely different major and am now hoping to start Delta State for Wildlife Biology. I chose NWCC over other community colleges because of location and it is a familiar campus. The classes are far from too hard to do as long as you do the work. All the teachers have been great to me and always had time to help when they could.

  10. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    They treat the students like they are contunuing high school. Not all students are straight out of high school. It seems that the adminstration micro-manages things. For example, registration for the following semesters must be completed by physically standing in a line and having a volunteer enter the classes into the system. Something that could be done from my home computer. College is an opportunity for young adults to spread their wings and learn the benefits to being responsible and independent, at NWCC they are still sheltering their young students.

  13. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    When I find myself bragging about Northwest I brag about the Fine Arts. I am under band scholarship and a Theatre major. Northwest cherishes its fine arts. The atomsphere is amazing, and inviting. We are all friends and we all know the harships of being a fine arts major. If it were not for the fine arts I probably would not have the abundance of friends nor would I have recived the encouragement that I recieve everyday from the staff and students to reach a dream that can now become a reality.
