Northern Essex Community College Reviews
Teachers were great, people are very welcoming. NECC Cafe employees are wonderful and so welcoming and attentive! Coursework isn't overwhelming but keeps you busy.
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.
The teachers and extra help that is offered by this school (specifically in computer science) is exemplary. I am continuously happy with how interesting the teachers manage to make the material while teaching you a lot as well. For the cost, it’s well worth the degree with enough wiggle room to maybe get two.
