Good college for completing general education requirements. On the downside, does not offer a lot of online classes and many on-campus classes are scheduled for times that do not allow for the attendance of working professionals. Difficult to complete degree requirements
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.
This is a great starter college. It is affordable and local for most residents of Connecticut. It offers a great education with professors who care about you and want to see you succeed.

Naugatuck Valley Community College is great school to go to if have yet to know what you want to major in. The staff and most of the students are very friendly and kind. Most of the professors go beyond to help students out with understanding a subject. It is also affordable and you get more interaction with your professor in class. The campus is easy to get around. There is a free tutoring center with awesome tutors to help a student out if they are struggling.
I would like to see more student activities at the Danbury campus. Overall though the admissions office is pretty helpful in assisting its students.
came here to learn, not to party but the professors are alright just make sure to review them before picking up a class on rate my professor.
I liked the affordable price of the college. I also liked the free tutoring resources, and how they hold cool events sometimes.
Excellent school. Professors are really good and are extremely helpful to students. Would 100% recommend any student going here.
The college is very good, coming here was the best idea that many people have come up with and it was very much worth coming to this school. Most professers are really nice to work with and i would sign up for their classes if i had the option to.
A great place to start a college experience. Nearly all credits earned can be transferred to other schools. Advisers are willing to help. Professors are helpful and easy to talk to.
The professors across all subjects were friendly, helpful, and informative. I really loved the theatre program. Everyone was so friendly and we were like a family.
However, the administration and advisors could be slow to respond and that was frustrating at times.
The staff needs to be a little nicer. They are all so rude. A kind staff member or professor is an anomaly in this college.

The staff here is very attentive and the environment is comfortable and friendly. Naugatuck Valley Community College is a great place to start your college years.
Naugatuck Valley is an amazing school for those who don't know what you want to do with your future. I took a bunch of classes and found out I love communications and made it my major.
Excellent professors, great diversity of students, professors and subjects, and the food, while a bit pricey, is super good! NVCC is also extremely affordable, and I'm happy to be a student here!
It would be helpful if financial advisors and admissions officers could be reached at both the Waterbury and Danbury campuses, overall I really enjoy the campus and programs they have.

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.
The staff in all departments are friendly and helpful. The only thing that would need improvement would be Internet speed! It takes a while for the computers to load up!
