Christian Life Profile

Since 1934, Northwest University has successfully prepared students for service and leadership.

Approximately 2,000 students study in more than 75 academic programs, including Business, Church Ministry, Nursing, UX Design, Psychology, Education, and Recording Arts. 

We believe each student is capable of significant and unique accom­plishments. Academic and spiritual growth are encouraged and celebrated. NU seeks to develop students of exceptional character, competence, and compassion so that they may graduate feeling confident and pre­pared to fulfill God’s calling on their lives.

Our 56-acre campus is located on the east side of Seattle in beautiful Washington state. Stu­dents are within minutes of leading corporate headquarters such as Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon, and Nordstrom. Greater Seattle has it all, including festivals, museums, parks, lakes, shopping, and major league sports. The Pacific Northwest offers some of the best venues for outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking, climbing, windsurfing, biking, and canoeing.
