I just started my studies at North Shore, but so far I have really enjoyed my time, and am impressed by the support system that exists at the college. I am a working professional who is returning to school to further my education, and though the adjustment has been challenging, I can't express enough the gratitude I have for the school's admissions office, department heads, and staff support for guiding me through the process of applying and becoming a student. They say first impressions are important, and though I am at the beginning of my journey at North Shore Community College, my first impression of the college is that it is a school that is committed to the success and welfare of its students, and I am proud to be a part of it.

I came to this school because I was in between schools and me being a student was temporary. I would describe my experience at North Shore as average. The students are great as many of them are mature and are just trying to better their lives as many of them I encountered are older. The professors I had mixed feelings about some of my professors were great while others were absolutely terrible, disorganized, and didn’t care about your situation. When the pandemic hit during the spring semester the professor tried their best to help you as much as possible but unfortunately it was rough. Some professors were very difficult to work with and didn’t understand certain circumstances. This school was ok as a temporary situation but I’m not going to miss being a student either.
My experience with taking online classes at NSCC thus far have been positive. The infrastructure in place with the online portal is solid, the instructors are available for assistance when needed, and the classes have been challenging and rewarding. Though I am in the beginning of my time at NSCC I look forward to taking more online classes, as it allows for much needed flexibility for me, being a working professional.
