Northwest students are Career Ready. Day One.

 For preparing me for my career, Northwest has given me a lot of real world and first-hand experience, especially with classes like Knacktive that gives you something that’s really unique and you can actually apply and use, rather than just the knowledge you write down in your textbook, it teaches you to actually apply the things you have learned.
