What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the academic side of the University, and the campus is stunning. The faculty are super helpful, engaging, and kind. The students seem a little unwelcoming but I'm sure they're fabulous once you get to know them better. I wish that their housing policy was more relaxed and the the state allowed them to have a Social Work Pre-lisencure program (but that last part isn't there fault). Overall, it's a great school and I like it a lot; it's a good Christian community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don't want to sound biased, but the University of Northwestern is an amazing school and has much to offer to students. It offers over 70+ majors and minors, as well as interdisciplinary studies that allow students to create their own majors. The faculty and staff care about the students and want them to succeed in every area of their studies. Classes range from easy to challenging and are designed to The campus itself also has much to offer too. The grounds are situated right on the shores of Lake Johanna and are within walking to a five-minute drive from restaurants and a mall. The student body is awesome too. All the students are so caring and make you feel welcomed right on your first day. By the end of a semester, they're practically family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university has a beautiful campus. There's an island and a lot of gorgeous buildings on campus. The school is quite art-centric; However, they do have a great nursing and engineering program. The biggest problem with the school is that it doesn't live up to its values. It claims to be a Christian school, but it has one of the highest abortion rates for Christian schools among its students. They also highkey gaslighted a PSEO student to the entire student body. The next biggest problem is the price. It's 40K a year and the administration exploits every opportunity to fine the students. Parking fines, chapel fines, where does all this money go? Seriously; They rent out the historic chapel for weddings every weekend and there's a two-year waiting list. Shouldn't a Christian college be donating most of this money? I've heard the president has a gigantic house, but that's just hearsay. This ties back into my main problem with the school; It often privately fails to hold to its very public values. But, in terms of education and campus life, it's pretty great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When visiting UNW I felt right at home. No other campus that I have been to has students walking with their heads held high and are always smiling, saying hello, and is willing to answer any question to help you out while on campus. In the classroom professors know all their students and care about what is going on in your life. UNW is the best college out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Imagine a University that is small, on the lake, secluded by woods, however, it's near downtown--that is University of Northwestern--St. Paul. It has great access to anything downtown for activities and really has an important aspect of community life. There are loads of opprotunities for students on campus for a variety of interest groups. The food is good and the campus is beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNW is a great place for those who want a valuable, Christ-centered education. Professors make sure to incorporate real-world applications, and they are all incredibly nice and understanding. Not everybody on campus is perfect, but the vast majority are the kind that would stop to help a stranger in any way they could. I'm really glad I chose Northwestern. The only issue I've had was with one professor who is no longer an instructor here. Overall, it's really a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful environment to meet different people and grow in your spirituality while seeing other people's viewpoint on subjects. Teacher's are generally friendly and will be there to talk to you with a smile on their face. It's not perfect, by all means, but it is to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNW was my dream school before I graduated high school. Since I participated in their PSEO program, I had a wonderful academic start there. The campus is lovely, surrounded by trees. We even have our own island and lake, allowing students a chance to be alone, hammock, or even kayak. The food is decent, though expensive for our a la carte meal budgets. We are required to go to chapel 22 times a quad, but students can decide which chapels they would like to attend. There are also other opportunities to earn chapel credit. A good deal of quality services are included with the tuition fee (health, counseling, car maintenance). UNW has also been generous with their scholarship packages, allowing students from lower-income families a chance at a private education. The faith-based environment is nice; there is an atmosphere of community that many appreciate. However, there is also a lot of diversity in theology and social beliefs. Ultimately, a student's spiritual formation will be based on how much they're willing to work for it. Most professors are open to engaging with difficult subjects; classmates and roommates often are great sources for discussion and learning as well. Because of the diversity of faith expression, sometimes a particular expression or theme can seem oppressive. It is important to take responsibility for one's own beliefs and spirituality--even at a Christian university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Casting out a line into Lake Johanna, letting the warm summer breeze cascade over skin while waiting for a bite is rejuvenating. Located on two lakes which provide countless opportunities for fishing, swimming, boating, kayaking, etc, this beautiful campus offers an affordable, high-quality, non-denominational Christian education and its own island! I have had excellent experiences with professors who are responsive to questions. With class sizes of about 15, the professors actually get to know the students and care about them. Students genuinely get to know and want to help each other succeed in a cooperative, non-competitive learning environment. UNWSP offers a private education on a wonderful, clean campus with great security, virtually no crime, and new athletic facilities. Free campus buses run constantly to help students get to all areas. One of the things I love about UNWSP is that they offer online dual enrollment and early college experiences, both of which I have utilized. Each semester contains 16 weeks, with 15 weeks of classes and one week off (Thanksgiving, spring break, summer break). I felt relieved to have the summer semester be the same term length so all of the learning and assignments for my 5 courses were spread out. Now for the areas that may need improvement… These are based on my feelings, so you decide if they are accurate. The school feels Baptist-centric, like Baptists are probably more comfortable with the views than other denominations. Chapel attendance is required a specific number of times each semester, which averages out to about 3 times per week, and they keep track. The denomination I was raised in would not call what they do “chapel,” more praise and worship through singing. There is no message/teaching. I like singing God’s praises, so I don’t mind attending, but it seems mislabeled. They have a nice stage/theater for it and a good band and vocalists. Because it is a small university with under 2000 students, it does not offer the opportunities that very large colleges can offer. I plan to go into astrophysics, so I will be transferring at the end of this year. They do have an excellent pre-med program with a 98% acceptance rate into med school. In conclusion, UNWSP is so safe that I would trust my little sister to attend. The campus is small with all parts being easily accessible; the teachers are helpful, encouraging, and uplifting. The atmosphere is laid-back, but focused with students helping each other succeed. I would recommend this college to anyone looking for a small, safe, Christian school with excellent academics. And it has an island open to all students for relaxation, conversation, studying, or the occasional nap!
