Northwest University (NU) in Kirkland, Washington, is introducing a new major that will take advantage of the University’s prime location neighboring tech industry stalwarts such as Google and Microsoft. NU’s Bachelor of Arts in Information Technology is designed to help prepare students for a career in the information technology field and apply information strategies that address real business needs.
Northwest University cares deeply about the spiritual vitality of its students. Chapel is held multiple times a week, giving students the opportunity to worship and grow together. But it doesn’t stop there. Faith plays a role in the daily lives of students in the classroom and in student living areas.
Something unique that Northwest University offers each of its students is the opportunity to pursue spiritual growth. As a Christian university, it is important to us that our students have plenty of resources to help them grow, as well as a strong community that will support their faith. Some of our most meaningful opportunities for growth are our annual summer mission trips.
I have nothing that I wasn’t given. Even my words—the tools with which an English professor earns his bread!—were gifts to me. None of them are mine. By teaching, then, I try to give freely what I have freely received. Yet, paradoxically, teaching is itself a gift . . . as soon as I try to give what I have received, I discover yet another gift! To be caught up in this finite gift exchange is to get a glimpse of that infinite gift exchange of Father, Son, and Spirit. I teach for that glimpse.
Mexican perspectives on immigration will get the spotlight at a one-day symposium sponsored by Northwest University (NU), in cooperation with the UNAM-Seattle Center for Mexican Studies. The event, Immigration in a Time of Uncertainty, will take place on February 24 and will consider policy options for immigration reform that respond to current social realities in the United States, Mexico, and Central America.
As we keep expanding and adding programs at Northwest University, we gain more and more students with different skills, talents, and passions. Each student chose NU for different reasons, and they all contribute to our community in unique ways. One of our current students came all the way from Maine to study music production in our Contemporary Music Industry program. Landon Fleury is a sophomore, and he has already become heavily involved in music and ministry outreach at NU.
While college is meant to be challenging, it is also meant to be fun! One factor that makes college so much fun is the surrounding area. This is especially true in the Pacific Northwest. Mountains, hiking trails, lakes and vibrant cities are all close enough that you could fit most of them into the same day.
