Welcome from the President

 A Message from Dr. Gary Lee Spears
On behalf of the staff, faculty, administration and Board of Trustees, I’d like to welcome you to the official Web site of Northwest Mississippi Community College.

I encourage you to browse through this new and improved website and take a look at what Northwest has to offer. Whether you are interested in one of our many program offerings—career and technical or academic—or you are looking for a non-credit class to help you with a lifelong learning project, you will find the answers on this site. You’ll find information about programs of study, financial aid, housing, student activities, athletics, scholarship opportunities and more.

In my long association with this college, I’ve seen great changes—changes in technology, changes in classroom delivery, changes in the student population and new programs of study. What remains constant is that community colleges still provide affordable, accessible higher education opportunities.

In a year when education is facing some of the toughest budget battles in recent history, we at Northwest remain optimistic, especially when we are able to celebrate one record enrollment after the next.

Please feel free to stop by our main campus in Senatobia, DeSoto Center in Southaven/Olive Branch or Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center in Oxford for a tour of our facilities or to speak to a faculty adviser. You will see for yourself why success starts at Northwest!
