I really enjoy being at Northwest Nazarene University and I love how the class room settings are smaller so that I could actually have a real conversation with my peers and professors. NNU is very involved in politics when it comes to their campus ministry especially this year, which I believe they should not do because no matter what politics brings division and we are to unify each other. I enjoy the people at NNU and I love the community that I have on campus.
I am currently attending NNU and I absolutely love it. The academics are great and my professors are constantly pushing us while also being there and understanding as well. If you are looking for a great Christian community while obtaining a great education I would highly suggest looking into NNU.
A great school if you are looking for a smaller university with professors who care. I especially recommend if you are interested in music, art, or nursing. A welcoming small environment with a community centered around faith, growth, fellowship and knowledge!
I love NNU. It has helped me to grow as a person and definitely grow in my faith. I could not have chosen a better school to go to and I am so happy about that. Everybody is so nice and even the professors are extremely nice; they actually care about you. I would encourage everyone to attend NNU!

I would tell my younger self this:
"Grades are very important. Mom and Dad tell you to focus on your studies for a reason. Do not screw around and put things off. You are just going to regret it, in the end. Get all your homework done first, before hanging out with your friends. Do not put your friends before your schoolwork because you are for an education. Friends are great, and the ones you make at college will stay with you forever, but do not go looking for drama to start up. Just do your work, hang out with your friends, and go to bed at a decent time. Also, go to the gym! You will gain weight, and you will hate it! Go to the gym, and work out before you gain too much weight. Remember those four things, and you will be set."

NNU feels like home with quality people surrounding you who all care about your life and education.
Nothing. I knew a lot about the school already.
I tell all my friends back home about the clean air quality, the snow, and the mountains. Back in my hometown, Bakersfield, California, these are three things you hardly see, if ever. It never snows. The air quality is awful, and you can hardly ever see the mountains. Up here in Idaho, it's very pretty here.
Since Nothwest Nazarene Universtiy is a privite institution, the tuition cost is higher than average. As a result, much of my tution is paid for with student loans. Though I am fortunate enough to receive some money through scholarships and grants, the rest must be paid with loans
Someone seeking a great education with professors and staff members who truly do care. A school full of school spirit and pride for our sports and what we stand for as a school. A close knit campus where there is never a dull moment.
A person who is well-rounded, dedicated, and true to his/her faith.
Like every other thing, this university has its things, that i dont agree with, we have fines for strict rules. We have curfew, and if your late you get fined, or if you dont get on time to your wing meeting, which we have every tuesday, we get fined. I understand the fact that we should get wing meeting, but they should understand that we have things to do.
My school is best known in this area for its growing MBA program. They advertise a lot about how easy it is to get your MBA in their evening program.
The students are more friendly and share a closer friendship with each other. Proffessors will go out of their way to help students succeed in the classes they are taking. Even the students are willing to help each other to succeed in school.
The best thing is the community aspect. The smaller size of the school and religious aspect seemed to make it easier to intereact with most people on campus and even to explore different ideas within the community.
