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 liked the many different programs NCC provided! If you're not ready to go to a big college or university, then community college is great alternative for those who have just graduated high school (speaking from experience). Your able to create your own schedule that fits your flexibility and the classroom is of comfortable size ranging from 15-30 people.
Very strong opionion about being here. It's helped me a lot being here. I have been to 2 other private, 4 year universities, but I was wasting money and unsure of what I wanted to do. Being here has cleared that up, helped me get a career (waaay more than the other schools) and actually helped me overall. My professors were amazing. I get the stigma around community colleges, but I'm glad I didn't let that get to me and I got this experience. Helps you get back on track- while saving money!
