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.

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.
This school is super affordable , the programs are great, and the professors and advisors are so supportive! I love attending this community college!
