Christian Life Profile


Prepare for your future career or graduate school by inquiring into the questions that define who we are. Engage in service learning and mission opportunities. Continue to grow in your faith in a supportive faith community. Join one of more than 40 student clubs and organizations or participate in our quirky campus traditions.


We love learning
Earning a college degree is hard work, and we will make you work hard to earn your degree. NNU is nationally recognized and awarded by both U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, but more importantly, our students are committed to intellectual inquiry.

Whether you’re interested in business or computer science, our grads leave NNU prepared to embark on any career path and to pursue advanced degrees at some of the best graduate schools in the country.

We love being a community of belonging
With more than 40 student clubs and organizations (ranging from Art Club to Journey’s Outfitting Co.) and
quirky traditions like Fresheree (our annual talent show) and Mr. NNU (like the Miss America pageant, except with dudes), you’ll find enough student life options to keep you involved and entertained for all four years.

We love pushing one another to grow in our faith
NNU’s faith community is rooted in love for God and one another, but it is not a Christian hideout from the world. Students and faculty alike challenge one another to examine, articulate, and own their own faith. Attend inspirational chapel services, join a small group Bible study, serve on a mission trip, or connect with other students in a weekly student-led service.
