But NU is not like most other universities. Here, you’ll be encouraged and challenged in your spiritual life like never before: at chapel services, by the new friends you make, by the questions you tackle in class, and by the image of Christ you see in the students and faculty around you each day. </span></span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 11pt;"><span style=""><span style="font-size: 12.0pt;"><span style="color: black;">At Northwest, our goal is for all students to graduate feeling equipped and able to enter the workforce with quantifiable work skills that employers find most valuable.
