If you are reading this, you are a part of Northwest University during its largest traditional undergraduate enrollment in its 78-year history. With 947 students, we just ousted the old record of 945. What was the secret for this year’s growth? The Admissions Office diligently pursued potential students by “adding personal touches to our communication, getting to know the student and doing everything that we could to make the decision process as easy as possible,” said Director of Admissions Jessica Velasco. The school’s retention rate also added to this semester’s record-breaking enrollment. Our traditional undergraduate student body is the biggest it has ever been and still expanding.
