SPOTLIGHT

An obstacle that I have had to overcome since coming to NNU has been my mental health. And I think that it's been really helpful that NNU has a wellness center, with counselors and a doctor that you can go to whenever. Without them I wouldn't be able to talk through problems that I have, and all the counselors there have been very helpful to me.
