I loved the diversity amongst the students. Everyone was welcoming and there were no judgement. There were students probably in their mid 50s finally getting there associate degrees, students in high school like my sister going to school at night, students from different countries, ethnicities, gender identities accepted. The teachers were all very passionate about what they taught, most of which have books that they've written themselves or retired from very successful and high paying jobs. Well known people in their careers. The professors cared about their students, offered help and responded to all emails professionally. The teachers held everyone to high expectations but was very understanding and reasonable. Campus resources were excellent and student services like guidance counselors and academic helpers were also very professional and nice. Great atmosphere to start or continue your college education!

I have learned a tremendous amount during my time here at NCC. All my professors are people who worked or have experience in their field of teaching. This institution also really cares about their students and provides access to many recourses. As much as the institution can provide and as much as the professors devote themselves to the students, It is the student's decision whether or not they wish to apply themselves in order to excel in their education. There are many students that just don't care. NCC should not be blamed for this, students must be held accountable for their own education. Furthermore, the benefits, in term of scholarships and financial aid this school awards is amazing. If the academic requirements are met and you are clearly a devoted student in good standing in this institution, then it will give you the money you need to earn your degree. Be smart. Save your money.
After taking some courses at NCC, Norwalk Community College, I heave learnt to appreciate how diverse, cheap, and kind this community college is. When i say cheap, i do not mean the facility is cheap, i meant that the tuition is cheap for the education you can get there. Most of the professors work in other "better" colleges such as UCONN and every single one of them has a professional background for the course they are teaching. You are getting the same professors you get at UCONN but for $4,000 less. The food on campus is also very cheap and honestly tastes a lot better then the UCONN campus meals. I visit both campuses a lot and you can tell they are very different at first glance, but they both have their own good and bad points.
