The ability to manage my time and be able to work with others are two of the key skills I was able to take from my school environment and apply to my work life.

Sydney Hanson

When I first visited the university, I liked the small class sizes with the ability to get to know my professors and I really liked the campus community. All of these things helped me choose PNW. I loved the whole school.
