What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a fantastic university and brings an all America feel. The campus is very homey and feels like the students that attend are there to learn. Furthermore based on my experience I would recommend NSULA to everyone I meet who wish to further their education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Northwestern State University is nothing but passion to be an NSU Demon. I started out my college career here at NSU as my first choice and fell absolutely in love with the school. I sadly left for a semester and attended another college and considered dropping out of college. I returned back to NSU and I have had nothing but love and support from the faculty and staff here at NSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwestern is a great university to go to when you don’t really want to go to a college close to home but you also don’t want to have to jump in a car, plane, or train to visit for a holiday. It’s great for getting a college experience while still being close to home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwestern University is the college I had dreamed it to be and more. I had wanted to attend the institution since I first visited there in middle school on a band trip. Ever since then, it was my ultimate goal to attend there, and now I could not be happier. I have zero complaints about attending this school, it really is everything I thought it would be. College was my savior from a bad home life, and Northwestern's facilities and counselors have also helped me to cope with the many problems I had and still have at this time. The professors here are extremely hands on and caring about their students and will go above and beyond. All the teachers at my high school told us how difficult college would be, and how the professors wouldn't put up with us and would treat us in a strict, cold, manner. Not at this school, it is the complete opposite, or maybe it's just because so many of them are well respected that they do not even have to assert themselves. Whatever the reason, college has been so much better for me than high school could ever even ATTEMPT to be. It's been the best experience of my life so far, and I cannot wait to make even more memories.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a graduate of Northwestern State University, I look back on the many opportunities it afforded me. Campus life at NSU is vibrant, fun and exciting. There are usually SGA or other organizational events held every day. Community events are abundant, especially among special interest groups and Greek organizations. Greek life has a prominent footprint on campus, as I was a member of a fraternity myself. It was a great way to meet new people and open new doors for future networking which has come in quite handy since my graduation, not to mention the pride one felt seeing your "Letters" displayed around campus. Academia at NSU is typical of most universities. There are classes that are exceptionally difficult that require one to be attentive to their studies; in contrast, there are those that are less strenuous. For the most part, the professors are willing to help in any way they can...of course there are some who's teaching methods are quite different, but they truly care and want to see their students succeed. I was able to forge a great relationship with many of my professors, even now calling some of them my fellow colleagues. Not to mention, NSU houses the Louisiana Scholar's College, a unique experience that focuses on personal and professional edification with a heavy emphasis on literature and research review. Campus housing is decent, the more recently build University Place II is the nicest and they are currently renovating Varnado Hall. Dining options are average, with Iberville being the main cafeteria though other options exist on campus. Off-campus housing is available, though I am not too familiar with it as I resided primarily on-campus. Houses within Natchitoches are older, but with the quaint, Southern charm of a small Louisiana college town. The university's presence definitely contributes to the city's liveliness with Christmas Fest and NSU's Christmas Gala being popular events that draw quite a crowd from places afar. Overall, Northwestern State University is an excellent university to attend. It offers a rather extensive spectrum of both social and academic opportunities. I have met many life-long friends and garnered a supportive brotherhood at this higher-educational institution, and I hope this review serves as a great insight into what a prospective student might expect if they choose to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwestern State is a regional university that cares greatly about their students. Each faculty member is personable and an expert in their career field. The size of the university allows for a unique college experience. Classroom sizes are small enough that each student gets individual, personal attention. The campus layout is easily accessible and continues to improve each year. I highly recommend this institution to anyone looking to get a quality education with a very reasonable cost of attendance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall experience is that, this would be the best place to attend college. All the students are so friendly and helpful. Going here will give u the best college experience. Also this is a great place to get your work on while still having fun. This college has so much to offer and you would never get bored here. I am an incoming freshman, and I am so excited to get the chance to go to college. I am also ready to further my education in an environment such as this. You would probably regret staying in your dorm, because you would miss all the opportunities that they have to offer. The classes are also great (as so I’ve heard from fellow students). This college best fits me and I am looking forward to attending here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about the school is the professors, who for the most part genuinely care about students and have a passion for their subject. The administration is inept and makes decisions that are totally out-of-touch. Diversity is atrocious among the administration and faculty, especially compared to the diversity of the student body. There is not even basic funding for disability support services. There's absolutely no public transit and campus parking spaces are terrible.
