The professors I had were all very nice people and really helpful when I needed it (And even sometimes before I asked!). They worked to make the material interesting, and were also very understanding when I had problems. The campus is beautiful, and almost everyone there (Staff, faculty, students, etc) was friendly. The student body was large, but it wasn't large enough to become "just another face". The only problems I had stemmed from a lack of organization on their part. However, the problems I had were eventually remedied by face-to-face meetings! Overall, NVC is a great place to go!

The campus is beautiful and the professors are nice and friendly, not to mention the tuition is cheap! Along with that, the parking lot is always expanding (thankfully, afternoon classes cause the parking situation to get extreme) and the campus itself always has activities going on. Sadly the food is sub par, but there is a Starbucks coffee place and the food itself is overpriced for what it is. But, I highly recommend using Uber eats or another delivery service for those long study hours in the cafe!
I loved the classes. They were easy to register. There was always availability. Parking is free. The only thing I would change are the advisors. I know not everyone is the same and just like there’s bad advisors there’s good ones. I had an amazing advisor when I had a different option for associates, but after I changed to something else I got another advisor. The first one like I said was amazing, she would reach out to me. She always wanted to make sure I was doing okay. She wanted to make sure I understood everything I needed to succeed, vs the other advisor. I only heard from him once and that is because I had to since I was already graduating. That is what I would change, why can’t all the advisors have the same mission ? If they don’t like the job they shouldn’t be there to begin with.
