The Northwest Experience

When deciding which university to attend, Bri sought a program that encompassed her interests in sports performance, mathematics and health care. She found her passion at Northwest and a program that provided hands-on experience in developing health care plans, grant writing, assessing nutritional needs of individuals, and creating production schedules and pricing structures for food service.

As a graduate with a degree in food and nutrition with an emphasis in dietetics, the variety of opportunities to sharpen her skills in and out of the classroom gave Bri the confidence to be career ready, day one.
