I went to NWC in the mid 80's and found it to be a rather stifling experience. Although the college is full of a lot of well meaning people, it has never been a first, second or even third tier school. This is not a rigorous school, nor has it ever been so. If you'e going into something Bible related, I would encourage you to consider this school. Math, science engineering- go elsewhere. Check out neighboring Bethel University instead. Their math and science programs are fantastic! The rules at NWC seemed to have changed quite a bit. Given the ultra-conservative reputation of the school, i am surprised to find college sanctioned dances going on. When I was there, one couldn't even hold hands while walking to class without getting into trouble for PDA. The bookstore recently gave out free t-shirts to the first 150 kids who came to dance the "Harlem Shake". 300 showed up. I'm not criticizing, I'm just saying that the school's viewpoint on things is obviously changing. Parents and prospective students need to be aware of this. As far as cost goes, make sure to go into a field that pays well enough to support yourself- including paying off the many college loans you would take on attending a private college like this one.
