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.
Norwalk Community College is an excellent experience for those looking to get their Associate's degree or transfer. It's inexpensive and the faculty is there to help and more often than not, they genuinely care about their student's success. Like most college experiences, it's what you make it, and NCC offers plenty of opportunity to it's students. I have been commuting from home for the last few years working on my associate's degree in Computer Science. I have been incredibly grateful for the opportunity to get started on my degree at such a low cost for the quality of education I have received. It's certainly taken the pressure off and allowed me to focus on school.
