"The adjustment from Northwest College to the University of Wyoming wasn't a big difference at all.  It was pretty much the same thing.  I found that the accounting classes I took at Northwest were better than the ones that I could have gotten here (at UW) as a freshman.  The accounting classes at Northwest gave me a better background."

Students in a business class



"After entering Northwest College's Business program, I discovered a new me.  A few years of studying has had a major impact on the quality of my life.  It was well worth the effort.  I am more self-confident, have a greater sense of well being, and a continuous positive outlook.  Northwest College's faculty and staff helped me find a new me, and in turn, that has opened up a whole new world for me.  Life is great!"
