NNU's education program is TOP NOTCH. The professors are absolutely incredible. Not only do they know their stuff and how to teach it, they make a serious investment in each and every one of us. They go above and beyond to equip us with the knowledge and experience we need to become qualified educators, and I've never had more fun in school than I have had being in this program!
