Campus Life
Make friends with students from around the world

More than 2000 students attend Northwest College, with approximately 500 students living on campus. Our international students are an active and integral part of the college community and enjoy the multicultural environment and activities that take place throughout the year. Student organizations offer many opportunities for students to get involved on campus. International students participate in student government, athletics, cultural events, Model United Nations, NWC newspaper, radio & television stations, and more than thirty-five clubs. Additional activities are planned for international students which include educational, cultural, and recreational field trips designed to provide cross-cultural experiences and opportunities to interact with other students.

Our students also appreciate the opportunity to meet Americans – NWC’s international student population is very diverse and is smaller than many other colleges and universities. We do not have more than 10 students from any one particular country. Unlike at other colleges and universities in the U.S., you will have many opportunities to meet and get to know American students.
