This college is very good for getting your foot though the door on your first year, but other than that the students for the most part don't care and think they are entitled to an education. The Dorms are very segregated by wealth and are occasionally loud daily.The food is good, better than most high school lunches and have much variety and is relatively cheap. Over all 3 stars is a bit harsh so maybe a 3.5 is more accurate.
Northwest Mississippi college is a great college to attend.
I'm currently a student living on Senatobia campus, and my advice to you would be if you have the financial capabilities to attend somewhere different, DO IT!!! Unless you're a jock, I which case you can more or Les glide through school with every opportunity given to you, but as a regular student, you get no scholastic breaks.
The staff has an unearned sense of entitlement, and will give you the run around on ANYTHING you need t get, from Financial Aid, to Housing, to Paying fees. It's honestly a major pain.
Although it claims to be a "drug free campus", there is an overwhelming amount of pot heads that attend (most of which stay in the same undisclosed hall). Unless you enjoy smoking weed every day, this may not be the college for you.
There is absolutely NOTHING to do on the weekends, every interweekly accessible commodity that students have, are completely shut down during the weekends. The only thing open is the cafeteria, and you have to have a specialized meal plan to get in!
Really, the only thing saving this review is that the people (mostly other students) are so friendly and willing to help. I am normally a shy person, but I have made numerous good friends here in the short time that I have been on campus.
Nwcc is a great school and was the best decision I could have made. The teachers and staff are always there to help and support students. There is almost always something going on on campus to do. The campus and buildings are always clean and kept up. This school became my home for two years. I met some amazing people here and learned everything from life skills to who I want to be to academics.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Northwest Mississippi Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
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.
I would say that the parking is the worst thing because there is not enough parking for the commuters.
My school is a very enjoyable community college campus where it is very easy to succeed in classes, great opportunities to make new friends, and a great living environment.
Northwest Mississippi Community College is mainly know for it's "2+2 Program." This program allows students who plan to attend University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) to attend school at NWCC for two years, then, transfer to the Ole Miss Campus. Also, depending on the degree, the "2+2 Program" allows students to receive an Ole Miss degree without ever having to step foot on the Ole Miss campus. Northwest Community College offers many classes through Ole Miss at the Southaven NWCC campus.
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.
All the students at my school are so kind and welcoming. I didn't know anyone coming into freshman year and now I feel like everyone on campus is friends with everyone.
The instructors are enthusiastic about teaching at the school. They love the school as much as their field of study. They give you detailed instruction and try to start at your level and raise you up. They are thorough and genuinely care about the students.
I wish I had known that I could have taken more hours because the classes were not as demanding as I expected.
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.
My overall opinion about Northwest CC is that it is fantastic. The best decision I've made is to come to school here.
I don't think we have one.
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.
