Special Memories of Northwest

I was committed to attend the University of Arkansas, but took a trip to Maryville in October of 1981 and the leaves were changing. I loved the beauty of the campus on that fall day and it was much closer to home. After getting a personalized tour and meeting some of the friendliest staff who answered all of my questions, I fell in love with the University.

Some of my favorite memories are carrying peanuts in my backpack to feed the squirrels by hand, enjoying the beauty of the campus and making new friends. I enjoyed playing sports at Northwest including serving as the first captain of the Men’s Soccer club in 1985, participating in intramurals and spending a lot of time at the pool.
