Chat with Our Students
Admissions Ambassadors are NU students. They are community focused—live in the residence halls, in student leadership, and actively engaged in fun whether that’s Screaming Eagles Week or NU’s Orchestra. They are Christ-committed to attend worship nights, lead life groups, and actively disciple each other in spiritual formation. They are career empowered with learning opportunities in their major, tutors for classes, and building career-ready skills. They represent the authentic Northwest experience.
