Northwestern Connecticut Community College Reviews
Amazing school! The staff is very helpful and attentive to your needs, and engaging in helping you keep track of your goals. The student community is very diverse and you always have someone to talk to no matter where you go. This college is one of, if not the only college in the tri-state to have an ASL program which is a great skill to have and is great in accommodating deaf and hard-of-hearing students. The free tutoring center has student tutors that may not always have the answers you're looking for, but are always there to help. Recommend this school to anyone who doesn't know what they are doing for a career or just want to save a little extra money.
Northwestern is ranked the #1 Connecticut community college for the 3rd year in a row. The students here are very nice. It’s difficult making new friends if you’re shy but if you put yourself out there you can meet a great group of people. I would recommend trying classes you wouldn’t expect taking to try and experience new things and possibly make new friends in a subject you both enjoy and would have in common.
It's a small community college in NW Connecticut, with a nice historical but modern campus. Since it's such a small school, the Professors and Instructors have the time and patience to give each student the individual attention needed to succeed.
