Alexandrea - 11/05/2022

Overall GPA has accumulated in 2.76, however, I intend for majority averaged at or above 3.0 in all respects I have had met and match most challenges involving the basics of college. Knowing where I am going and how to get there makes it… all the more, satisfactory in sure time allotted. Familiar with overall progression towards the intended outcome with graduation soon it is too kind having the availability of such an opportunistic scholarship advance. I would like to say that I am in great appreciation for and to the community college (Northland Pioneer College). Attendance of this assistance will overall aide in my achievements in acquiring the supplemental required resources, material such as with chemistry and arithmetic. So, a scientific calculator, measurement devices in scale, plug in computer dive in which to store large amounts of assignment information. A senior portfolio is also definite in the escalade in completing and altogether graduating from and to another institution.


Overall, while this is a community college and does not provide all that a 4-year university does, it fits my needs at this point in time. I am 19 and in my second year, working towards my Associates of Science in the hopes of transferring to a 4-year and completing a Bachelor's in Chemistry. I was never the most academically inclined individual in high school, and NPC has provided me a kind of do-over. Without this campus I probably never would have continued my education, believing that I was not smart enough, nor financially capable of attending a four year. This campus, while it does not have much, has become my gateway to a whole new life. I can take the classes I need and work at my own pace and I don't have the pressure that I did in high school to be the very best in my class- I can work towards becoming the very best for myself. Community colleges, such as this one, should not be frowned upon, because they lack the recreation that a big top notch university. For many, they are merely a stepping stone, the shallow end of a deep pool,that allows them to have a taste of a higher education without plunging into the icy depths of debt, stress, and commitment that goes hand-in-hand with university. NPC has allowed me to get my feet wet, and has given me the courage to dive in to what I hope will be the rest of my life.


There is no dormitories on any of the campuses. There are nine different locations in the state. There are no sports, which is okay with me. I lived at home with my parents during this time. (Still do.) I'm about to get my associates. Overall, I had a good experience with Northland Pioneer College.


Northland Pioneer is a Community College with over 9 campuses spread out over the extremely rural area's of North Eastern Arizona, and for many students they are the only game in town unless they want to leave the area to attend a University. For a CC they are decent with a good selection of topics covered primarily at the two big Campuses in Show Low and Holbrook, the smaller campuses often have the majority of their classes in class via Tele-conference/Video call with or with out the professor in the classroom with you.

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

    Being a senior wouldn't give me enough time. I slacked off through high school because I didn't know how important school and education is. I would tell myself to get involved in every club and activity I could, keep up on my grades and strive for A's, and apply to any and every college that had programs for my intended study. I would tell myself, chin up! Times will get better. Money will get easier to come by. You won't have to work for friends. And your intelligence will be your strongest attribute. I would also tell myself that my interests will shift all over the place until I land on one that will open doors to many jobs and not keep me stuck in one field. And lastly, I would remind myself to travel. Leave home, go places that are uncomfortable, see the world with new eyes. Do it now while you don't pay bills and have a good job. Go satisfy your ever-oncoming wanderlust.
