    I have attended the school since Fall 2016 until Spring 2020 due to taking classes to save money when I transfer. It is a perfect place to start after high school because it is a great way and place to figure out what you want to do. The tuition is cheap enough to the point where if you apply to financial aid, you could pay off all tuition and have extra leftover. Most of the credits transfer to anywhere! Except for Architecture. The credits only mainly transferred to one college. If you are joining NCC for Architecture, I recommend you save your time and go to an institution that would definitely accept the credits! I am a Computer Science major and all my professors were great. The food is a bit over priced but the flavor is pretty good. There are also food trucks occasionally and I believe on Wednesdays until 2pm there are farmer market stands inside or outside depending on the weather. They include several homemade crafts, products, fresh ingredients, and delicious baked goods.

    NCC is exactly what it sounds like: a college built around community. There's a lot to see and do, and a lot of people to meet. You'll come across people everywhere, from a million different backgrounds and places. That's one of the exciting things about being there though: meeting new people. Being a smaller college, I was able to meet new amazing friends and go one-on-one with teachers who really cared about me. As long as you meet the right people, you'll really enjoy the community aspect of Northampton Community College. Just step out! I guarantee it.
    I love attending NCC! I save so much money and I have received the highest scholarship from a 4-year school just by going here! The professors are great, the class sizes are small which is great because you can ask questions and the professors know your name. I have joined Phi Theta Kappa and I love it, being in the honors program gets you a lot of perks such as great transfer advising and agreements, more scholarships, and you get to be in classes with higher-level thinking. Overall, I love NCC, I would recommend it anyone.
