This college is your typical small town community college. This being said, it has pros and cons. Pros: Everyone is VERY helpful. Response from admissions, financial aid, etc. is excellent. They can help with anything you need pretty much on an immediate basis. Cons: This is a small town and there aren't a ton of things to do. It's very quiet.
I have been attending CNCC for a year now. The college is good for Equine study. My only problem has been the switching of program directors in the middle. It has made things difficult adjusting. The dorms are ok and you can choose to co-ed or not. I prefer a room alone so I can study and relax if I would like. The class sizes are average and have a diverse group of kids in them which makes it interesting. Hoping to get through my final year !
If I could rate 0 stars I would. The campus coordinators do not take care for the students, neglecting and uncaring people run this campus. Student life is by far the absolute worst! The town is decrepit, full of racists, bigots and self righteous small minded people: not the best for a learning environment. The town offers no jobs to students as their "schedules fluctuate too often" as they should for a college student. The nearest city is 2 hours away by car. The town police target students. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL

So far CNCC has been an ok experience for me. I LOVE the outdoor atmosphere of this town and mountain location but definitely wish there was more to do. The teachers are good for the most part and classes easy enough to pass. I love that they have a building with single dorms. As a 28 year old returning to school after 10 years, that has been so nice. I've been living on my own for 10 years and don't know how I would do living with an 18 year old kid lol. Luckily I didn't have to find out. I live in Nichols Hall, which is a building with only single dorm rooms and is a 24 hour quiet hall. PERFECT for me. The food at the college is HORRIBLE. It's worse than the food from the elementary school cafeteria and that's saying something.
They try and help find you a job out of college that goes with your major.
Classes are small so it is easy to receive help from other students and one on one time with professors and instructors.
Need more effort from students
Aviation is a very fun hands on experience. But have to be willing to put in a serious amount of work to succeed.
Very affordable compared to other schools with the same program.
its great they have evening and morning classes for just about everything.
The online class I took I found very hard, to understand the concept of wht exactly I was learning.
We had somone once tell us they would clal us if we didn't have a job within an yr after finishing school,and that's it.
I think is okay, because how I said we don't get much hands on expirence . But we do get someone when to show us critical thinking and how to apply things in the real world. Which I will benefit greatly later in my career.
At the end of the day , I go home knowing I learned something new, and I am one day closer to my career . All because CNCC makes it affordable ,comfortable and very helpful. At times I get to school without eating , but thts nt a problem because they have a microwave so I can just heat something up when I cant make it home before class. I get to class and get a big hello , and I come out with more knowledge than before.If I ever am struggling with anything there is always some to help.
Well the courses I am currently talking, are okay... We don't have the equipment we need to learn hands on , but we have a great instructor that does his best .
It is a great college, very friendly place. I mostly love that they always have someone to help you in the "gateway" , so you never feel like your alone through your studies.
I had one professor that was wonderful so helpful and nice. The othr Professor that I had she was the worst I got one email from her the whole time and it was the welcome to class email. The style of the online class was very easy to understand, i would go through before the class starts and get a good feel for it though it can be confusing if for peope that dont use computers a lot.

I took the classes online so that I wouldnt have to leave my job and move to a collage town. As far as online disccusions with the class everyone waas very friendly.
The one teacher I had for my ECE 101, wouldnt get back to me or reply to question I had. I felt vry alone whne it came down to figuring out a question or talking over an assignment. And as a result I wasn"t able to do as well as I could have if I would of had more answers to what she expected.
