Small classes with eager student peers that want to learn and succeed. Fellow peers are great to lean on for help whenever the need arrises, especially if they are in the same or similar degree program as you. The instructors all seem down to earth, knowledgeable, and very helpful! If you show you want to learn and can put in effort, these instructors will not let you fail.

It honestly depends on the difficulty of the subject and also how you like to learn. Because of COVID, I am doing my Calc class and CHEM 1 class/lab both online and I really wish that wasn't the case. Not that it's the school's fault that an international pandemic shut everything down, but I have ADD and I'm slightly worried about doing Chemistry at home in an environment where I'm not forced to pay attention.
But, for some classes that are not as difficult as Chemistry, the online learning experience with NRCC is great. It really just depends on the student and the class.
