Choosing the right college is about fit. Northwestern College is a great fit for students who learn best in small classes with professors who are great teachers and inspiring mentors. We’re perfect for students whose faith is important to them and who grow spiritually by being around other Christians. We’re the right place for students who want to be part of a tight-knit campus community while also experiencing the world.
