I have had an amazing experience at Northern just from the start of my freshman year. All of the students and staff are amazing as well! Being a disabled student the campus is fully accessible for me I am able to get around the campus without any issues. As far as what I would like to see change,I would like to see that there are more classes that are being taught in the classroom rather than them being taught online or have it only be taught in the classroom once a month. In my opinion I really don’t like having online classes because if you’re going into education then I feel it is best to go to the classes that you’ve signed up for and actually go to them in person. I am in the education program and about to get my associates degree in elementary education

I have been at Northern New Mexico College for 4 years now about to receive my associates degree in elementary education. My experience at northern has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had as far as schooling. Being a student that is disabled it has been really great to see and experience that there is a great amount of accessibility on campus I have no complaints whatsoever. As far as what I would like to see change is the education department. I bring this up because being in the education program I have had my fair share of classes and I will tell you the truth when I say that the classes haven’t always been my favorite due to the fact that most of my education classes are fully online or the are hybrid. In my opinion I think that if someone is going into the education field classes should be fully in the classroom because I feel that there are a lot of individuals who learn better being face to face in a classroom.
Being a Freshman attending Northern New Mexico College and taking Dual-Credit classes when I was in High School I appreciate how well you can navigate your way around the campus and how you get familiar with some of the staff working there. However, I do not like how there is a lot of bad individuals who attend there so you do have to watch who you surround yourself with and the Some Security seem more creepy then helpful or even useful.
