Northampton County Area Community College Reviews

I enjoyed NCC. The tuition is so much more affordable than a state college and/or university. I have never lived on campus so I cannot speak for housing, but I do know their food is pretty good. Most of the professors are amazing, but as with any place you go, there are a few bad apples in the bunch. Advisors are extremely helpful too! There are a lot of activities around campus and never truly a time or reason to be bored.

I honestly love Northampton's campus and classes. It is small enough to not get lost and everything is easy to find. I am currently still attending this college. I am in their Early Childhood Education Program. It is an amazing program and the amount of things that I am learning is amazing. They get into every little detail, which is great because you need to know all of this information if you plan to work with young children. Northampton, also, gives you the beginning of your college experience. It gives you the foundation to move onto a four year college.
I really like going to school. It can be stressful at times but wasn't? Northampton Community College offers a great variety of programs and just recently added more dorms to their campus because of the overload of students living on campus. The college offers councilors, help with finding a job, help to students looking to build up their resume, help with interviews, academic help(The Learning Center), and so much more! The foo and prices are good and easy to get to. The college offers several different clubs and other non-academic activities. Northampton Community College has an honor society (Phi Theta Kappa) in which is a student makes the Dean's List the first semester they are eligible to join. Along with everything else I said I'm glad that I started my college career off here. It helped give me a sense of what college is like without overloading me too much. Another reason why I chose to go to Northampton Community College was because it;s cheaper than a university. This is important to me because I'm paying for my education by myself along with financial aide. By going here, I'm aloud to stay at home with my family, continue to be a Sunday school teacher at my church, and get a chance to make sure I"m in the right path before I head on to bigger things.
