Why are you "forever green"?

"I am "forever green" because I was fortunate to attend Northwest, which provided me with both student employment and student loans to enable me to attend. Northwest also enabled me to associate with exceptional fellow students, some of which who became lifetime friends and enabled me to attain degrees in Accounting and Finance from one of the finest business faculties and programs available anywhere in the Midwest. Northwest changed my life."
