Naugatuck Valley Community College Reviews
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.
I never thought I would go to a community college but in doing so, I have gained so much. It really is a community, a family. Many people look down on community colleges, saying that they are not "real colleges". Sure, NVCC doesn't have athletic teams or housing, and they don't offer degrees higher than an associate's. Yet, that doesn't make it anything less. The campus may be small, but it is beautiful. Did you know that they have 14 gardens? And they just opened a new building for nursing students. The professors are also your friends, they care about you here. I may not have planned on attending a community college, but I am so glad that I did.
For a two year, it's very good. Professors are second to none, many of which teach at the bigger universities in the state anyways. Literally same content, same course for a fraction of the cost. Since it's a two year, there's no real student life. No campus life. No night life. But most of that's not the colleges' fault, it' s Waterbury's. Deans are very helpful and will always do their best to make time for you no matter how busy they are. Financial Aid office could use a little more support early in the semester, but they do their best. If this was a four year school with dormatories in a relatively popular location, just off of professors, mentors and advisors alone, I could see it being a top 100 school in the country.
