Helpful Links
Just toured University of Northwestern-Saint Paul today with a couple of my children looking at it as a prospective college. It was shockingly beautiful and serene. Almost like walking into a fairy tale. Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The grounds and buildings are gorgeous and I (being a devote Christian myself) was thrilled that they work to continue the Spiritual growth of their students in God's Word. They even require all professors to sign an affidavit of Faith. (Which since a huge amount of college students leave their Faith behind is at the top of my priority list! Yes above my students education or even physical health I place their Spiritual health and Faith in God and have told them this.) Being a Christian and believing in Heaven and hell how could I not? I really can't think of any cons to this college with the information I currently have. A+ They also have their own private island with bridge access.
