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.
Review Your College
Northampton Community College is a great place to start your college experience, especially if you aren't entirely sure what you want to do. It saves you tons of money, and you can get all your general courses out of the way, and experiment with your areas of interest through the courses they offer. Some of the college professors that they employee are the most wonderful people you'll ever meet. For example, if you want to really improve your writing skills, take Michael Pogach's English 1 and 2 classes. If you have the chance to take a philosophy class, and want to think a lot about life, and the world, take Robert Thompson's Intro to Philosophy. Northampton also offers tons of clubs. All the friends I made were from the clubs I joined and they're some of the best friends I've ever had. Overall, Northampton Community College is a great place to start out, and I highly recommend it.
I think that Northampton Community College is a really great school. It has a wide variety of options to choice from. I decided to choose Northampton community college because it helped me save money in the long run as well as helped me with my educational goals. I think a lot of the teachers are very helpful and I think that Northampton Community College will help you achieve your academic and career goals. It is a decent size school and you can get the same kind of educations as a four year college. I feel that it has helped me grow as a student and helped me learn new things. It has helped me gain new friendships and meet new teachers that I can use as a reference for a job one day down the road. If you have the opportunity to go to Northampton Community college I think it is the right choice plus you can transfer after the 2 years which I plan to do myself. Northampton Community college has helped me find out what I want to do for my long career goals which is really amazing.
