Loved this school man! Great resources for students and professors with advanced knowledge in their fields. Diversity and safety is a strong emphasis of this community college. The campus has plentiful greenery and is an amazing spot to chill around, especially with their inspirational lake being the center point of the campus. The campus is located around a suburban working populous with no dorms, so the party scene is nonexistent. Extremely cheap school with a rewarding educational investment in the end. As with any school however - parking can be a stressor, campus food is overpriced, and traffic can definitely be an issue around the campus at early AM working times (6-11AM).

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!
It really gives you a lot of flexibility with your schedule and the professors for the most part just want to see you succeed and will help you get there by holding meetings and speaking to you on how you can improve via messages or after class. The food is great in my opinion. There are currently no dorms or on-campus housing, but that would be awesome!
