Norwalk Community College Reviews

I'm a second-year/ 6th-semester student at NCC. It's a fairly small college, which means it feels a lot like my high school. Class sizes average about 25 students, with most students fresh out of high school, or much older students returning to school for a higher education. I've loved being able to take advantage of winter and summer semesters, however, the tuition isn't covered by financial aid for those semesters. Clubs are student-run, and every club I've joined has not lasted more than a few meetings which is unfortunate.
The school is well-known for its Nursing program and boasts about being a two-year program, however, the prereqs for the "two-year program" require an extra three or more semesters. Most other schools I've looked into do not have this problem.
All in all, the school is great. Cheap, close by, and gives you a great value education.
I am currently a sophomore at Norwalk Community College and I've loved it so far. The reason why I, and the majority of the students, attend the community college rather than go to a four year college is because of money issues. It is relatively cheap and essay to attend this school. My experience so far has been great. If you know you're major you are assigned to a specific adviser who will definitely help you if you are motivated enough to transfer. But don't worry if you don't know your major, the advisers for undecided are just as helpful. The professors are more than qualified at this school, well at least in the art department. I have had teachers accomplish many things before teaching at the school, which motivates me and many of the students. These teachers prepare you for the real world. The overall environment of the college is a productive one. There is a wide range of diversity that will in the end benefit every student that attends.
Overall, Norwalk Community College (NCC) is a good school education-wise. It is recommended you ask around for info on the best teachers through students who have underwent the various classes. They can give advice on which teachers to avoid and which to pursue. Head to the guidance office and don't hesitate to ask for a course class layout. This will help you pinpoint the exact classes needed for your major. This helps avoid wasting time and money on unnecessary classes. Go mingle with classmates, and make friends. Take part and enjoy the various events they have on campus, like the Spring Fling every April, Trunk-or-Treat every October, and others. Ask your teachers and fellow peers questions to get help. NCC is a good school.
