I chose PNW because of the challenging academics. It’s also close to home, the environment is welcoming, and they’re part of NCAA Division II Athletics.

The community you get to be a part of when joining the Honors College was and still is definitely the biggest benefit to me. The friendships and connections I formed through the Honors College shaped my entire college experience.
