            1974-1978, Business/Education

            Northwestern College is a small Christian College in Northwest Iowa. Its facilities are second to none for a college its size. Northwestern will always be kept close to my heart. It is where I met my wife, and where I also, accepted Jesus Christ into my life!!!

            2013-2017, Bachelors

            I think the people here are really into the campus life and not just the "job" you get after. There is a sense of seeking a higher purpose and goal motivated by the desire the participate in God's redeeming work in the world God loves. The faculty and staff have students think towards something good we all can do for our world. This is why I recommend Northwestern College, IA.
