What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy my time there and I encourage anyone looking for higher education to first attend this community college. It is a great way to attend college without the intimidation of a large university. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I always feel like they have the answers that I need and are always readily available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwest Vista Community College is one of the greatest campuses I have been to. Not that I have been to many, but out of the Alamo Community Colleges and for being just a coommunity college, Northwest Vista is the best. It is a beautiful, big, open campus with so much to do and so many different activities a student could want to involve themselves with. Going into my freshman year of college, I was scared. I figured it was just going to be like high school except bigger and more people. I was wrong. Northwest Vista makes you feel nothing like high school. It’s a safe, loving, and caring environment to students and is very welcoming to freshman and returning students. As i walked in the front doors, already I was lost about where to go. I kindly asked a random student if she knew where my class would be and she ended up walking me there and told me all about Vista and her freshman year there as well. Here, at NVC you make lots of new friends and even get to be with some friends that you may have not seen in a while. Finishing up my first year of college, I saw all the incoming freshman and helped them to their classes and welcomed them to campus as done to me. As I finish my second year here, I have never been more grateful for the administration, faculty, students, and even the campus for providing me with all the necessities I can possibly need. Thanks to Northwest Vista, I feel prepared and ready to transfer over to the university and start the next chapter of my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a good community college overall. Academically it seems up to par, with it not being as rigorous as a university. However, it isn't easy to the point where it doesn't academically feel like a postsecondary institution. The cafeteria is overpriced, but the food is okay at best. Would not recommend going every day if you want to save money. The student life is friendly, met a lot of people and made many friends over the past two semesters. Obviously, since it's a community college, there is no campus party scene at the college or greek life. However, there is plenty of friendly students as well as activities to participate in. The campus looks nice, and it's a relatively nice size as it is easy to get from one building to the next. No buildings looked old or in need of any major repair, so no complaints there. Class size is nice, as there is mostly around twenty to thirty students per classroom and it gives an easy opportunity to get direct help from the professors. Overall, I liked this community college and would recommend it to anyone wanting to finish their first two years for a cheap tuition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwest Vista College is a friendly environment with a very modern school setting. The instructors that I have had are very approachable and are still here for me, even if I already finished their class. The students are from the community because it's usually where a large amount of high school graduates apply to right after high school. I find this campus to be beautiful enough to do your homework on the grass next to lake, or on a bench.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwest Vista has helped me tremendously in the classroom. My professors are always willing to help me understand if I don't and always emphasize how available they are to help us be the best students we can be. I couldn't think of a better community college to recommend to anyone. Northwest Vista is a school that actually prioritizes educational learning of the real-world and in the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good campus to get little college experience academically. The professors prepare their students for a four-year university. There's a lot of resources being provided for the students, students have access to information that are helpful for their field of study. Everyone is friendly, everyone try to get involve in events that the school announced.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a rather nice school. It has come along way from when I first attended 10 years ago and most of my classes were in portables, they even have their own lake! They also recently put in a parking garage, showing that their attendance has really increased. With the West and Northwest side of town becoming more and more developed their has been a huge increase in people moving in and business' springing up in and around the area of Northwest Vista.
