My favorite part about being a Bearcat:

I chose Northwest because:

I chose Northwest because during my visit, it felt like home. I loved the smaller size of Northwest and the feeling of community.

Advice for other freshmen:

  1. My biggest piece of advice for first-time freshman is to talk to the people around you when you come to Northwest and join some sort of club/organization.
  2. Don't be afraid to connect with your professor and ask for help. This took me awhile to realize but almost every professor wants to help you succeed in their class.
