    Pros

    I attended NAIT for 3 Years. I truly love this College and I recommend it to anyone researching the school! They have a great gym, skating rink, different food varities, a ton of different clubs and groups and so many opportunities to get involved in volunteer groups or to make friends! The classes were small, not massive, and we worked as a team - making great grades and support. I would definitely go back and I recommend anyone to attend!!

    Cons

    Some instructors just read from the text book.

    Advice to Management

    Its all about the Students!!
