The professors here are great! First off, the dance program here is amazing. The head of the department is an incredible teacher as well as academic advisor who cares for each one of her students individually. She is fantastic at helping you plan ahead and I have received amazing training in classical techniques from her. Outside of the dance department there are people just as great that I have been lucky enough to meet. Many of the professors teach at other schools like Yale or UCONN and give us the same syllabus they use at those schools for our classes. The classes can be challenging, in a good way. Teachers here treat you like an individual, you aren't just a number and that is one of the best parts.
Review Naugatuck Valley Community College
My experience at Naugatuck Community College has been nothing but incredible. For such a small school they have so much to offer their students both with their wide selection of programs and extracurricular activities on campus. I have had professors from UCONN, Quinnipiac University, and Yale teach me in my academic courses. I have been challenged in the classroom, engaged, encouraged, and most of all been accepted. This school offers students who might not be able to go to university yet-for whatever reason, grades, financial status,etc.- and helps them get there, or at the very least prepares them for when they make it out there. I have nothing but love for this school and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to go somewhere relatively affordable with great programs and great education prospects.
People often say community colleges aren't really up to par since the community colleges and that they're easier and such, but honestly I feel like it's all about what you take, how interested YOU actually are, what you decide to do with what you learned, and so forth. I feel as though my academic experience so far has definitely been challenging on many bases, but also very rewarding because I learned a lot more than just the generic "educational" aspect of things. You learn a lot about yourself, your ambitions, certain strengths and weaknesses, time management which is huge, and networking which is most definitely important for friendships, opportunities, and careers.
