These two established entities have been ranking colleges for years, taking a plethora of factors into consideration each year. For their 2019 rankings, both groups recognize Northwest University as one of the best Christian colleges in the West.
The next time someone asks, "What are you majoring in?" ... tell them, "Enchantment." English. Religion. Philosophy.

Although English was my first love, I wanted theology and the pantheon of great thinkers to inform my study of literature as well.

NU’s music department is currently seeking musicians who play woodwind, brass, string, or percussion instruments! Why? Because the University is building on its current instrumental program with both a wind ensemble and an orchestra. 2018-19 is going to be a great year for music.
When we examine the life of Jesus, we see that he cared immensely about developing people. Our Savior was deeply committed to ensuring that those around him had what they needed to walk fully in their calling. Through Jesus’ relationship with his disciples, we come to know him as an influencer, teacher, mentor, and servant. These leadership characteristics enabled him to lead and develop future leaders with the capacity to advance the Kingdom of Heaven.
