Severe shortage of real Christian guys at thisQuite BrightArt & Design Department
Severe shortage of real Christian guys at this school. Do not expect to meet your future husband here. Commuter students do not usually get invited to impromptu social events, sadly. There should be a speed-friending event each semester, not just freshman orientation. Some classes are only offered once a year (one session). Studio art, music, and science classes can be very time-consuming, so don't schedule too many for the same semester.

Question
Very little academic challenge at NPU.Quite BrightEducation
Very little academic challenge at NPU. The staff treats veterans with too much disrespect. There is a major drug issue on the campus. The dorms are the place to buy any drug you might desire, this is scary. There are students on campus in the dorms that do nothing but sell drugs, they are not dealt with due to minority status and college does not wish to deal with any race issues. Sexual assault is also ignored by the college for same reasons as the drug issue. NPU is a tiny inner city crime haven with no fear of legal accountability. DO NOT SEND YOUR DAUGHTERS TO NPU!!!!!

Question
The academic regard at North Park is veryQuite BrightEducation
The academic regard at North Park is very very low. This college is nothing but a below average high school. I have yet to be challenged in any of my classes. There are many inner city students that have a lack of basic reading ability which really slows every class down. The worst thing of my personal experience is the college went through my transcript and excepted 28 hours of credit, but when I was in my second year at NPU, I received notice that 10 credits would no longer be allowed toward my degree. I am so angry they did this after the fact, the admin has not level of honor...none. Basically they just lied to me. Another very poor action by the college is their poor treatment of the Vets coming to the school. The staff are not Vet friendly. Again NPU is just like a below average high school.
