    I was very pleasantly surprised by NCC! The environment is great and there are so many resources. There is an abundance of amazing professors that are extremely knowledgeable and willing to help. There are a select few who seem to have no interest in teaching and have slipped through the cracks unnoticed, but they’re overshadowed by the wonderful profs who love what they do. The school could use some upgrades, but overall it is a great environment.

    I love NCC! Everything about it, the courses, the professors, the atmosphere, etc. All the professors are very kind and truly want their students to succeed. Whenever I have had an issue in a class my professors have done all that they can to help me through it. There are so many resources to help us get where we want such as the learning center, advisers, counselors, and many more. NCC makes you feel like you are more than just a number and that you actually matter.
    It's a community college so you get what you pay for. Relatively inexpensive compared to many other institutions, but with that comes with a lot of extra fees and materials that students must supply themselves with. Also many students still have a "high school mentality". Still a good place to start if you a.) don't know what you want to do b.) are tight on money or c.) want to save money for your first two years and work/live at home. Campus is nice and decent sized. Cafeteria has a nice variety. Also has dorms which is unique for a community college. Has various athletic opportunities for students as well. If you don't care about the "big university experience" and want to earn your degree while not falling into tens of thousands dollars of debt, Northampton Community College is the place to go.
