At Northwest, the word ‘family’ gets used quite a bit, and it’s an accurate description of how we feel about Northwest. When we think back about our times with friends, whether those experiences were shared in the dorms, in class, during happy hour at The Palms or cheering on the Bearcats, we look back with the fondness of family. Northwest was the place where our own family began. Had someone told me on that sweltering day in August when I moved in to Hudson Hall that later in the year I would meet my future wife, I wouldn’t have believed them! This connection doesn’t end with the friends we made along the way; it also extends to several members of the Northwest faculty as well. We were fortunate to spend time with incredible mentors who helped shape our lives and develop us into the people we are today, and we are forever grateful to them. Now, living miles away in Phoenix, it’s that connection of the family that still ties us to Northwest. Northwest is, and always will be, family.
