Academic Programs

It is such a supportive atmosphere. The smaller class sizes offered the opportunity to have conversations with and receive guidance from professors – opportunities I may not have had at a larger university.

PNW offered a perfect college experience for me. The connections and relationships I’ve made are my favorite thing about attending.
