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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwestern feels like a university size of my old high school. Everyone is extremely friendly and open to building new and different friendships. The students are up for having fun or difficult conversations. It is very safe and Christ-centered. I knew I wanted to go there as soon as I stepped foot on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Northwestern-St Paul has a great sense of community and fellowship. All of the professors and staff are very intentional and really make a point to get to know all of the students. From my time attending Northwestern for PSEO on-campus classes, I have learned a lot about my major and have also grown in maturity and self-reliance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northwestern provides the ability for students to interact with each other not only on an academic level but also on a social one. They provide many different opportunities for students to interact with each other through programs such as sports, theater, music, art, and a variety of clubs. They also give students the ability to create their own clubs to provide a way for students to pursue their interests.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school. God has grown me a lot in every way. A little pricey, so if that could reflect a ministry major's future salary a little more in future, for ministry majors anyways, that would be much appreciated. Overall, I absolutely love the College and Christian community that, for the most part, encourages your spiritual walk to thrive in deeper ways!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UNW. UNW has an amazing atmosphere and everyone is treated like family. I could not of asked for a better community to be a part of. The professors are very caring and always able to help you out. Northwestern wants you to succeed, and always has opportunities outside of the classroom to do so. Christianity is a very large part of campus life, and it is placed into every corner of your education. The dorms are amazing and provide a nice escape. The only negatives are a small variety of majors and a long walk form the dorms to the academic building in below freezing weather. I would suggest UNW to any Christina who wants to invest in their education and future, as well as a relationship with God.
