I went to Northwestern for one year.AverageAccounting
I went to Northwestern for one year. I completed two years of PSEO in high school and figured I would just go to Northwestern as I had enjoyed the classes that I had taken. I wish I would have looked at other colleges. I wish that the school did not make me feel like I had to go because I took PSEO classes there. In my one year of going there, I really did enjoy it. I made some wonderful friends and had good relationships with many of the faculty. There were a few things that made my experience poor. One is the fact that they were going to make me stay on campus until I was 21. They were also incredibly rude when I tried asking to find off campus housing. The second reason is their business department is incredibly lacking. They had a massive turnover of business professors and the new ones they brought in truly did not understand how to teach. If I am paying a fortune to go here I need a good education. The third reason is when I finally decided to transfer, they told me they did not want me. I had to have an exist meeting with a counselor who grilled me about why I was choosing to leave and did not like the answers I gave. In the end he told me if I did not want to stay they did not want me anyway. I ended up transferring to Bethel University. While I had some bad experiences here, I also had some wonderful ones also. I advise anyone looking at colleges to do their research and choose based on how they feel.

The health psychology program is not what isBrightPsychology
The health psychology program is not what is described in course descriptions or program brochures. A master's level course uses a self-help book as the text. Very Freudian, unbiblical, heal yourself. According to the courses, basically all illnesses and diseases are caused by repressed rage. No research or anything to back it up. Coursework does not in the least apply to job as a behavior analyst.

Do not go into debt to attend theCommunications
Do not go into debt to attend the University of Northwestern. Don't assume it will help you with your spiritual growth to go to this or any Christian college. How close you are to the Lord is up to you. Don't expect people here to act like Christians ought to. I attended Northwestern in the mid 80's. What brought me here was a conversation I had with a young woman who graduated from NW in the mid 2000's. She told me if she had to do it all over again she would not go to Northwestern. I realized that over the decades I have spoken to dozens of people that attended NW from the 1970's to the 2000's. All that lived on campus said they would not attend Northwestern if they had to do it all over again. (One guy who attended in his 40's and didn't live on campus thought it as ok). If I had to do it over I wouldn't do it again. I wound up successful - but not because of NW. The complaints I heard over the decades are the same as mine. Hypocrisy, unfriendly students, arrogant professors and coaches, too expensive, you can't confide with students or faculty without having that confidence broken, not a great education, not preparing you the world. To see the majority of the people that comment on this site just confirm it. Wish someone had warned me. I should have took the hint when the homecoming game was so poorly attended.
