What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have the advisors at NECC to thank for my career path. I have 2 associate's degrees from NECC, and a career I love. I paid up front for classes, and never had to take out a loan. The campuses are small, but I like it that way. Both campuses were within driving distance and easily accessible for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall my experience at NECC was rather mediocre. There was nothing especially heinous about it and the general area was nice ( I took classes on Haverhill campus) and they have a lot of additional course opportunities. However management was not great and thus I'm very excited to be transferring to a 4 year private college to finish my education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Essex is the only community college in my vicinity but, the greatest option between schools in Massachusetts. My first semester there was amazing. My teachers were very nice and helped as much as they could. The college has two campuses which can make you have the "college experience" and honestly is great! There's many options for night and day school as the people there always try to work around your schedule. There are many people of different ages at Northern Essex because it is a college for anyone ! Everyone can go there and start their education!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a good place to start out your college education either coming out of high school or a returning college student or a non-traditional one! Academics are okay. College campus is nice in Haverhill but in Lawrence I would be careful and try and to avoid it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Essex Community College is a great starting point for many students coming out of high school. It does a great job of making the transition smooth while keeping the costs low. The professors are always available and often times go as far as to give their personal phone numbers to give a students a convenient way to contact them. They care for the students’ success and are often willing to change up lectures if it proves beneficial to the class’s success. Overall, Necc is a great institution and while it may not be the best out there, it’s a great place to start.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the Deaf Studies program is excellent!!! Students looking for a career in interpretation or socil work with the Deaf are very well prepared and qualified. There's also a lot of involvement with the local deaf community and reaching out services.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NECC , every since I was in middle school I've heard people say it was a bad school. But after i graduated high school and started the fall there the school is just amazing ! Everyone is just super helpful. The classes are about 20-30 students depending on the class you in. There is a lot of events that go on, on campus. The campus is has two different campus. If you want a more city feeling school you could go to the Lawrence campus. But if you want a more suburb feeling you will want to go to the Haverhill Campus. The students are so nice, Everyone said hi. We have food on campus so no need to drive or leave the campus for food.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would first say pay attention in class, you will need these basics to make it in college. I would also tell myself to consider college right out of high school. I went into the millitarty and while I don't regret that, I wish I had gone to college earlier. I am now 41 and going back to school now is a challenge. I would also tell myself to manages my time more efficiently and procrastinate less. In High school there are definate deadlines, and you are reminded of them daily. In college you get your homework and you are responsible to keep track of when it is due and get it done on time.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

My school is a really good one. The worst thing about it is that it is only a 2 year school.
