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.

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.
I enrolled in Naugatuck Valley just because they are the only community college in the state to offer theater. It has a very great community within theater and also just in every day circumstances. The classes are taught by great teachers who actually want you to learn, the campus is beautiful and there is something for everyone. If you're looking for an affordable option to begin your higher education, this is definitely the place.
