    The College offers so many great opportunities and experiences. I got to study in Atlanta, Georgia as part of my course and now I'm employed as a full-time Business Analyst with NWRC's Business Support Centre.

    The recording facilities at NWRC are second to none. I use my free studio time to demo and record new songs. You wouldn't get this anywhere else at such a professional level.
