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.

I came to North Shore Community College after failing to succeed at two regular universities. After all the stigma I had heard about community colleges I was pleasantly surprised to find that NSCC exceeded my expectations on multiple accounts. First of all, the campus. The campus is beautiful. The buildings are always clean, well-light, and welcoming. The cafeteria food has a lot of variety and everything I have tried has been pretty good and a very reasonable price. The library is one my favorite places on campus because of all the resources they offer as well as the "quiet zone" in the back which is a very useful place to get work done. The only thing I would change about the campus is the parking, or lack there of, which can sometimes be a nuisance. Secondly, the professors and staff. Every professor I have at North Shore has been wonderful. I have a learning disability and all of my instructors have been accepting, flexible, and helpful with my accommodations and always willing to help me out and answer questions. The staff I have worked with about my accommodations as well as picking my schedule and talking possible future majors have been very nice and helpful. In conclusion, what you get out of community college is what you put into it. If you choose to take your courses seriously and try your hardest to get help when you need it, I think anyone could do well here!
Initially, I was in the Liberal Arts Program. It offers a lot of perspectives, it was almost impossible for me to decide for a major. Luckily, I was accepted in the Nursing Program, which is great. I love both, I wish it would be possible to graduate with both programs. The Nursing Program is very hard, but it opens so great perspectives!
