Skylar - 09/29/2020

Copied from email I sent to Dean: I have been having serious issues with my biology Professor, Tanya Thompson. I ultimately have decided to drop my class and will look at other institutions to pursue my degree. I studied at Warren County Community College, Raritan Valley Community College, and Moravian College to get my B. A. in Music. This is my first class I have ever taken at this institution and it has been by far the worst class I have taken in my life. At no point in time did she ever attempt to reach out to the students before the semester began. So on day one I log on to black board to find a nightmare. Horrible instructions on how to log into different programs we were never told we needed. When I emailed her for clarification on how to login and why I had to pay additional fees, she sent me a 1800 number for the programs and told me to talk to them if I was having issues. I then spent over an hour on hold and never managed to speak to anyone to help the situation. Several days later I managed to get into the programs, with absolutely no assistance from the professor. The professor didn't make any attempts to teach this course. She would just post quizzes and lab work. We would reach questions that had no relation to anything from the chapter and email her, with no response. Myself and other classmates finally gave up on seeking her help and tried to help each other figure out the answers. There were labs with instructions that said add 'solution' to the test tube, with no explanation as to what the solution was. When emailed, once again there was no response. I ended up taking a guess finally and then after taking the test I emailed my classmates what the 'solution' was supposed to be. The final straw came the other day when she finally decided to email me, but she emailed me a link on how to get help for blackboard. I have attended 3 different college institutions and have taken in-person and online classes. I do not need help navigating a simple website. This woman needs to learn how to teach. I can provide emails from myself and classmates about the issues we have had if you would like. I understand that I can not get a refund at this time so I will instead be looking to leave a review about her and this institution in every possible location online.

My overall opinion is that it is a beautiful campus with nice new classrooms and dorms! Teachers value student success. I know many students who thoroughly enjoy going to school there for the reason that teachers are so involved with ensuring students education.

Michaela - 04/11/2020

Northampton County Area Community College is a great school. Most people don't proudly attend a community college right out of high school but I am glad I did. It saved me money and made me real friends in the community. The professors really care about you and your academic goals and most are more than willing to help you achieve them. Overall, NCC was an outstanding place to start my college career.
