Student Resources

The NWACC Honors Program offers a curriculum of small, challenging classes led by instructors who are engaging and committed to transforming your ideas of undergraduate education. Many classes offer seminar-style discussions, learning through experience and service, and opportunities for rethinking traditional approaches to coursework.

The Academic Literacy Center at NWACC is the pathway to an academic understanding of college reading and writing. Center faculty offer their expertise to assist students to master writing and reading concepts and academic literacy skills to better help them with their studies and become successful students. The Academic Literacy Center offers literacy labs that support Composition classes, one-on-one consultations, workshops, and tools that can help with reading comprehension and to overcome language barriers in literature.

Get involved and be part of something bigger than yourself--join the staff of the student newspaper! Journalism is essential in a democratically elected, representative government, and working with Eagle View offers students a chance to see what it's all about.  Any person enrolled in classes at NWACC may be on the staff of Eagle View.  Opportunities range from reporting to photography, graphic design distribution, and more in between. No previous experience is required. Students get training and lots of support, help, and encouragement. Former staffers report this school activity on their resumes has helped them get interviews and jobs.  Students also win awards at state and regional journalism contests.

The Writing Center at NWACC is an integral part of the composition program. Writing Center faculty offer their expertise to respond to writers individually during the composition process. They strive to develop in the writer the ability to recognize good writing, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism. The Writing Center offers face-to-face, online and e-mail consultation, workshops and many online resources. They also offer a yearly essay contest where select students are published in the Expressions and Reflections anthologies, which are used within the composition courses as examples.
