Northern Essex Community College Reviews

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.

I am an honors student who puts 110% of effort into my classes but sadly the teachers and advising employers are corrupt. I am a first generation college student in my family and had zero support or guidance on how to pursue my future career. I am struggling trying to make ends meet and this school is evidently unorganized. Now, some of the teachers i've had on the other hand loved seeing you "fail" as well as ignore every email you send them. Dont get me wrong though, i've had professors who helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel! Nobody said school would be easy, but at least take charge and "teach" if you want to be addressed as "Dr." or "professor.

Ps. I have a 3.7 GPA and am involved in multiple extracurricular activities. I just don't think it's fair to struggle paying for school full time with absolutely zero help and having to drop a course because the professor thinks it's okay to base 75% of your final grade on 3 tests whom you have an hour to complete. I'm a biology major yet got stuck with a physics 2 professor who is teaching advanced mechanical engineering 2.
I love Northern Essex so much. The school is filled with professors who actually care about the students. Every time I go to the school, I feel like I'm at home. So many wonderful people attend the school. The fact that it is a community college really brings everyone together like a family. I wouldn't change anything!
