A beautiful gem of an institute tucked away in the mountains of a national forest. Every building is conveniently close and walking distance from any parking lot. This college offers everything from one of the best nursing programs to theater. The staff is so welcoming and everyone's main interest is in the success of the student body. It is a wonderful college to knock out the basics and really acquire the fundaments needed to further any education. You will wish that it was a four year university by the time you are close to graduating because it truly is a special place and I am so thankful to have been a part of its family.
Review National Park Community College
I have had an excellent experience so far! Instructors are great, helpful, and available to help you. The classes are of a good variety as the degrees and certificates for a school its size.
My first semester I had two professors. I had to contact the head of the department on both my professor's. One the college could not even get into touch with for over two weeks and the other ignored my emails in regards to the assignments she posted. My second semester I had a professor that gave a quiz every week, but you could not answer them do to the wording. She even went back and regraded each students work finding that I was correct on the quizzes not having either answer as the correct one. My third semester, my adviser put me in a class that I did not have to take due to testing out of. I am now about to enter my forth semester and pray it is better than the previous three. I would switch colleges, but no other colleges offer my degree in the state of Arkansas.
