Naugatuck Valley Community College Reviews
Rating 3.77 out of 5 448 reviews
The professors care about student success and the school's academic resources really bolster student confidence and competence. The school provides a wide arrange of majors and certificates as well as transfer degrees.
Classes have been engaging and the professors really care about student success. The school allows students to meet with their advisors and use the study hall where the school employs top students to tutor others who are struggling.
The environment of NVCC feels like high school. The professors I’ve had so far aren’t that great besides a few. I feel like with more dedicated professors, I would give a higher rating.
I really enjoyed taking online classes at NVCC. The workload was manageable and the professors provided all of the information necessary to be successful in the course. I definitely prefer online classes and will take more in the upcoming semesters.
The online experience with NVCC was pretty good. Despite the transfer of classes to online due to COVID-19 it was adaptable for people that continued their education. It offered a lot of material and options to do in your enrolled class and especially the contact students had with their instructors was very good.
I've had no issues with the online classes, the flexibility has been great. It all depends on the professor that is teaching the class, but so far each professor has been very accommodating. I hope the online classes continue to be flexible, as I've noticed some are going towards LRON (need to be online during the time that's specified aka Live class)---which may be helpful for some but as I work it does not work for me. I rather take Hybrid classes than LRON but of course, during COVID they are trying to adapt as best as possible.
Its been a great experience, I am a part-time worker & the flexibility of the two campuses plus online capability is convenient. I've had no issues with this campus and no issues with the commnet site. Blackboard has been fantastic to use, plus the professors have been very accommodating during the COVID dilemma occurring.
We've had to transfer over to online learning during COVID and our professors have made every effort to get us going again and to learn everything we were supposed to learn. I have taken some online classes besides COVID related reasons and they have all been awesome! Professors are very flexible and as long as you apply yourself and do the work everything goes smoothly!
I have been with Naugatuck Community College for four semesters already! I have enjoyed all of my classmates and professors. Naugatuck is the place to be for so many reasons. I couldn't have returned back to school without the flexible schedules they offer and the support of the office team!
I never took a class online before until all of this happen (Covid-19) I always thought was not my type, since I enjoy it having classes with People and my professors I used to believe that was much better than internet, but now I think is not a bad idea thankfully this semester I had the opportunity to have a great professor who was new with all of this and taught us very well, so I believe I will be trying to take another class online.
It went well I think, not amazing but not bad either. :) It was nice, even if I had trouble with the transition.
I go here but I can only afford to take one class a semester. I loved the art history and graphic design class!!
My experience at Naugatuck valley has been very interesting and exciting. I’ve met some wonderful people and have had the pleasure of learning from very educated and kind teachers.
After my first semester at Naugatuck Valley Community College, I am very pleased. Very large campus for a community college, there is plenty of parking which is more of an issue than you'd think. Elevators and handicap service. Classes are challenging and interesting. Professors are very educated and always open for help. Free tutoring is available all hours college is open, and is a great resource and extremely helpful! Super accessable also, walk ins are welcome. Love it
Good teachers, good place to start your college education. Two locations, one in Waterbury, and a satellite campus in Danbury. School is continuing to grow and offer more classes and programs.
This college isn't just a community it is a home. Taking a semester off lead me to apply to Naugatuck CC and I have thrived since! I was a B average non-active highschool student and all of that changed at this college. I maintained a 3.8 average, participated in so many campus activities and opportunities and it has really instilled maturity and growth. The faculty has been so helpful inside and outside of the classes, they care about their pupils. This college is a community that has your back, its a community that cars about your personal journey and is an amazing starting or continuing point to higher education.
One thing that I liked about Naugatuck Valley Community College is that they have people to talk to when it comes to personal issues such as finances, courses, etc. However, I want them to have better professors in the school. I had struggled with Math in both courses for the Fall and Spring semester. I have even went to tutoring and asked for help, but I would still leave even more confused and frustrated.
