I love Naugatuck Valley Community College! The campus is really good and very resourceful. I made a lot of friends here, especially for those who are in the Digital Arts Technology department of the campus. Even though that the Digital Arts department at NVCC is really small, it is considered my personal escape, and the classes are really fun! The staff is really nice! They will do anything to help you succeed, and they want you to succeed! Currently, I am studying in Film, and am taking two film classes. Besides my Digital Arts class, my other favorite class is English because my professor is really nice, and he makes the class enjoyable for his students. Overall, NVCC is a great launchpad to start, after graduating High School! You will save a lot of money in the long run, by coming here.

I am proud to be part of a college that takes students from all over the world. Since I started college I have meet wonderful classmates from India, China and Mexico. I have learn a little bit of their culture and traditions and at the the end I have realize that we share something in common that we are the first in our families to finish High School and are enroll in college. As soon as you walk to campus you feel welcome by the security and employees. The classrooms are big and secure for all students and staffs. What I really enjoyed about my college is the help and time that I get from my advisor , there are always there when I need any help. They are constantly reminding students about any new classes or any extra help that there is for us. I am very proud to be part of a college that has no boundaries when it comes to help their students to achieve their academic goals.
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.
