Maria Moreira Chavez

(Class of 2021 Associate of Arts)

Maria Moreira Chavez Looking back in time, two years ago was when I first moved to the States. I couldn't recognize it then, but I was scared. I was scared that I wouldn't do as well in school as I did in Ecuador. I was scared that I wouldn't be welcomed, and I was scared that I wouldn't meet anyone with who I would bond. Today I am glad to know that I was wrong. NSCC received me with open arms; the professors taught me many things like critical thinking, writing tools that I still use, analyzing, time management, drafting, planning, accessing resources, and many more tools that have prepared me for my time at OSU.

Dan Gariepy

(Class of 2000 Business & Marketing)

Dan Gariepy I have taken the education I received at NSCC around the world - literally. Through an amazing "semester at sea" learning opportunity after NSCC, I have developed a strong global perspective that still guides me today. My mission work and my music both reflect the foundational education I received at Northwest State and my studies at other institutions. View full story!

Josiah Stottlemyer

(Class of 2019 Computer Science Engineering Technology)

Josiah Stottlemyer I gained more than an education at Northwest State. I gained the confidence to network, do public speaking, and ultimately a career path to Bil-Jax/Haulotte Group. I would like to credit Brad Geer for helping me realize my true talents, and connecting me to great local employers to open doors to my new career. View full story!

Amanda Judkins

(Class of 2016 Medical Assisting)

Amanda Judkins I was attracted to Northwest State Community College based on both its academic reputation as well as knowing several others that I knew that went here and spoke so highly of the school. Northwest State has lived up to its academic reputation and more. I have found opportunities for personal growth and development not only academically, but also to expand beyond classroom knowledge.
