The Haverhill campus is nice for a community college. However the Lawrence camps that I was forced to take classes at is in the middle of a ghetto neighborhood and there is not much parking offered. Also at the Lawrence campus there is no where to buy food or drinks other then vending machines (no cafeteria on campus). All of the medical programs are now only offered in the Lawrence location because apparently the school gets some type of government kick back for being in an urban primarily spanish speaking city. The teachers are mediocre in the program that I am enrolled in. A few are helpful and knowledgeable but that is not the majority. The school wants to keep their pass rate and NCLEX pass rate high so they make it very difficult, and do not offer much help to the students that are struggling or that are not strong test takers.

I started at NECC in Fall of 2016 and I am about to start my fourth semester there this January for the Spring 2018 semester. I can honestly say that I am so grateful for NECC. It is definitely more affordable than other schools which is a blessing because other colleges are just far too expensive. I am able to go to a school and continue my education and work towards my degree in Elementary Education without feeling like I am getting the short end of the stick. The staff members are very kind and all of the instructors I have had the past three semesters have been amazing. I recommend NECC to all of my friends and family that are looking into colleges.
Northern Essex Community College is a 2 year community college that brings together individuals from all over New England, mostly the Merrimack Valley area in Massachusetts to reach a short term goal. Most students are highly motivated to graduate earning their associate's degree and move on to a four year institute in hopes of earning a further degree. The students, faculty and staff at NECC are the most diverse group of people I have ever been apart of.
