I firmly believe that in the Northern Essex Community College will in the future provide me with many opportunities. While your time in college is a very favorable experience to live by, I hope all of the students looking to attend here know some very important points in college. It’s important to stay positive and initiate commitment, as an outcome from all the negativity, never dwell on the past, but know that something will always be learned from each and every other person that one may come across in life. As a new student learn to maintain a common ground with all that you meet, but always bear in mind that from the good ones you learn what is expected. In college, remember to stay on top of your game. Commemorate on the good times that will be spent in college, most importantly always recall to have a little extra room to make improvements to be a better person then what you were antecedently.
Northern Essex Community College has been an amazing experience. Everyone is so kind and genuine. The professors are hard working and care about their students. My experience at NECC has been a journey but I have enjoyed every minute of it!
