North Shore Community College Reviews
I am very surprised to have been pleased with my experience at North Shore Community College. I was expecting my experience at community college to be a long painful one, but I found the opposite at North Shore. Not only is everyone supper nice, but everyone genuinely cares about your well-being and if you succeed. I was blown away by the positivity of people on campus and the staff. Each of my professors had a focus on making sure each student, regardless of age, gender, religion or sexuality were welcomed. As a college student, you are required to put in the effort and the work, but it was reassuring when every class I took the professor explained their common goal of wanting everyone to pass and do their best. North Shore Community College was the best decision I have ever made regarding my education, and I encourage everyone who is undecided if college is even an option, to look into this school.
There are a variety of different students each with their own culture. It’s great because you can see how this diversity is shared and loved over the college. You can see this through the clubs, programs, and aid they have. The 9/10 of the professors are dedicated, intelligent, kind, respected, and understanding individuals. They will push you and guide you for you to see what you are really capable of.
North Shore Community College is an amazing school. I have had such an amazing experience attending this school, and I am proud to say I will be receiving my associate's degree here. I highly recommend this school to anyone. I never grew up with a trust fund from my family, so jumping into a debt filled, four year education at a university was not an option for me. I primarily have attended the Danvers campus and I've had such a fun time going here. The only thing keeping me away from a five star experience was how I feel some professors help prepare students for transferring to a university. I do not think all the professors at this college properly prepare their students for universities.
