As an adult learner I can’t stress the level of flexibility this college offers. From early morning, days, evening and even weekend classes available! Some of the best professors I’ve had were at this school. Some of the worst were at Universities where you are just a number. Glad I decided to purse my nursing career at NVCC I just wish I had decided to go here sooner! It’s extremely affordable with payment plan options available. The campus is easy to navigate and parking is not bad for a very popular community college.

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 absolutely love NVCC! The college offers so many programs from Nursing to security guard. Not only are there multiple programs to choose from, but the staff are all so pleasant and work with you to achieve your goals. There is a tutoring center to help with any subject needed as well! You can also bridge over to another school once you are finished with your 2 years at NVCC.
