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.
Northampton is a good choice if you are unsure of what you are interested in studying. I knew that I wanted to be a biology major from the start but still went here to save some money and to get my general education classes out of the way for a quarter of the cost of other schools. I do not recommend this school for students interested in science majors. There just aren't enough tutors to teach the students and the professors, at least in my experience, aren't in their office during their listed office hour time slots.
I believe Northampton Community College is an excellent school for anyone. It is very affordable and provides a high scholarly level of education to all students. I havae been a student at Northampton Community College since 2011 and have obtaine my Associate's degree and well as my specialized diploma and currently in the process of obtaining another Associates degree in the Radiography departmnet. Northampton has made me successful!
It is a very nice school with a lot of resources. I greatly appreciate the size of the classroom. I don't feel lost in the classroom.

If I was to go back in time, I would dissaprove the negative perception of college work. I would be self assured that developing a new attitude about college would grant me, as always, a cherished success. As a reconnaissance, I would study widely in preparation for college education . And lastly, I would abandon all mundane activities that I used to engage myself in and replace it with mechanisms that arouse critical thinking, since critical thinking is the basis for an excellent performance in college.
I have not yet attended my first year at Northampton area Community College, but am very much looking forward to furthering my education for myself and my almost 5 month old son.
Easier on the wallet (by approx. 30k - 40k per year)
One of the best things about my college would be how nice everyone is. Of course everyone is nervous there first day of college but for me once i got there I felt very welcomed and I knew if I had a question about where I was going there would be someone there to help me. I consider that the best thing because you never really feel unwelcomed, there are so many different people and there isn't little groups like high school.
good professors are hit and miss. when enrolling, try to find out from current students which professors to have for each class.
If you are a person who is dedicated and hard working, this school has an enviornment which provokes learning and studying. Aside from the education side of NCC, this college has a very friendly enviornment. I am a shy person myself and attending this school has not only helped me academically but also socially. So if you are either a friendly interactive person or a timid individual, then I definately recommend Northampton as a great place to go.
Most of my classmates are hard working because they are paying their own way through college without the help of parents. My classmates come from numerous different ethnic backgrounds providing a rich-education experience to all. Also, because my school is a two-year, commuter school, the age of students and their experience range drastically providing something both valuable and unique that other schools can't say they possess. My classmates are the future leaders and business people of the world!
My school is best known for having a wide variety of courses and majors for a community college. Also they are one of the best community colleges in the area.
Someone who isn't communting to school because they have limited amount of space for students who are dorming.
I wish I would've known more about the avaliability of financial aid (scholarships, grants)
I never had bragged about anything yet.
the most frustrating thing about Northampton is the fact that they dont give u a specifice time on when ur fasfa money and how much money ur going to get is . that is one of the most frustrating thing at Northampton.
