There is a couple of gyms, each with their own facilities and equipment. Library is a great place to study and get work done. We have two peer tutoring services with well-trained tutors. Dorm rooms are close to everything. We have a theatre for performances and many other events. A student lounge that has games and many other activities if your looking tod something in between classes. And we are getting a late cafe where there will be games etc. and its a place for students to really get to know each other.

Class sizes are 22-30 and the classes are far better than I had imagined. Photography sophmores have a large workload since they must prepare for the interviews before finals which can be at sometimes, a little overwhelming. These interviews are potential jobs as well as practice to see how an artistis interview differs from a typical one. These interviews are also set up for your particular portfolio ans speciality.Teachers will help with getting started in the job market if asked.

We have a very high level of acceptance at the school of all types of people. In one room we had all religions and ethnicities hanging out. Its not hard to make friends or to get to know people. You typically will have many friends in your field of work since you see them the most. We have non-traditional and foreign studebts all around. Most students are involved in many things at once. Plenty of students have on campus or off campus jobs.

Teacher-student relationships are as close as you want them to be. All photo teachers trycto get to know their students really well so they can help them succeed. You learn a lot of the technical and art side of photography. Other teachers in the more general classes tend to treat you like your still in high school but that's livable once they know how capabke you are.

This college is the perfect place to start thinking about a major that fits your interest. It's very cheap tuition and the college takes a wide variety of people who apply. I definitely think that if you don't know your major or even if you do, it's a great place to get ideas of other majors and/or get general credits out of the way.

Although I didn't have a major when I first started attending this college, I certainly figured it out with the general credits I needed. My professors that showed enthusiasm in their classes are the classes that caught my attention and made me more interested in that course. The professors here aren't always very enthusiastic and that can really affect the way I feel about the course they teach, and could very well make me change my mind about pursuing that class as a major.

Because this school is so small, the teachers are always easily accessible and answer any questions I may have about the class. Although that is a fact, many of the teachers don't review all of what the class needs us to do during the semester. So, although they may be very accessible and have the answers I need, I think that the teachers need to keep to the semester's criteria for the class.

I am a writing and sociology major, and so my classes are on a wide range scale. The work load for my English classes is extensive and honestly hard to keep up with, while my sociology work load is a little more spread out. I am still taking generals classes so some I'm not enjoying as much as others.

My school consists of many different diverse groups. Although it is a small school and the diverse groups are smaller, there are many of them. Financially however, most students come from lower to middle class families. The 'levels of acceptance' are high considering the diversity and how everyone reacts to each other.
College Sophomore 2013-04-12T16:30:43Z
The class sizes are just right for good interaction where you can get more out of the class. The professors are helpful and very good at communicating. Some of the processes used for registering and other work like that is a little confusing and doesn't help in coming students as much.

I haven't really gotten to take ay classes real specific to my major because I am in community college, and I'm there to just finish my basics. I wish more business courses were available.

It's a lot cheaper to attend community college for the first two years before beginning on your actual major so the pay is an A+. I also love that parking is cheap, only $50 for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Northwest Vista College is one of the best community colleges in Texas. I love that that it is located five minutes away from my house which is great in beating traffic! The only negative part about my college is the parking. Of course all colleges are going to terrible parking, but this year we lost a huge parking lot to build a parking garage which would only add about 400 more parking spots. The parking pass for the garage would cost around $200, and you are not even guaranteed a spot! Nevertheless, what makes up for it is the faculty and staff. They are so helpful, and I have never had a problem with any of my professors. There is also many possible resources available around the campus so there is no excuse to make bad grades. The resources are right in front of you, and I love to take advantage if that!

The professors were easy to get ahold of and very understanding if something went wrong. THe best part about Northwest is its faculty.

Some of the halls are really nice the one that I live in is kind of the odd ball, it's just old. They do have different programs that help out with kids that have financial need.

Computer Issues – The internet sometimes has problems getting logged into the school's website, it can also tend to be confusing. The printers in the hall I am in do not work, and haven't worked for a year from what I have been told.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
