I think NCC was pretty good, I only had a few classes there, but they weren’t terrible. I think they went well and I learned something from them.

Sarah - 12/25/2019

Norwalk Community is a must for first time college students get a easier start by admitting but I do believe that there are things that need to change that I would love to see. NCC should provide more interesting academic programs (degrees and certificate programs)

Stephanie - 11/08/2019

It’s a really great college

G - 04/08/2019

All in all, I would say to skip this school if you have the opportunity. Unless you're given the opportunity to take a semester here to take out some general courses by the four year school that accepted you, don't think about this school as anything but a last chance. Not a single school has a guaranteed transfer agreement, so you're on the hook of convincing a school to allow you to transfer. The social life here is absolutely dreadful, and the majority of professors are badly disogranized, do not respect their own start and end times, and have incosistent backwards ways of attendance taking, which usually works against you. However, if this IS your last ditch chance school, it will be the best institution for learning the life skills needed to succeed in life, and in a four year. At the same time, it is the last place you'd want to go if you already have these aforementioned life skills.

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

    If I could go back in time there is so much I would advise myself. When I was a freshman in High chool I had a child and was in a horrible domestic violent relationship. I was living in a state of poverty and all I could think about was how I was going to get through school, work 2 jobs and feed my child. I didn't go to college after high school because I thought it would be impossible for me to make it. I thought I wasn't smart enough and that there was no way I would have had any help from my mother or the teachers to help me make it through such a had circumstance. Knowing what I know now, I would tell myself to "Go For It, You Can Do It". You can take college at your pace, don't get overwhelmed thinking you need to do it all at once. Find out about how you can be helped in defferent areas, including finances. There are so many different resources offered to help you though this process. Don't wait so long to do something you can do right now.

  4. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    When I was looking into other colleges I didn't get the friendliness and willingness to help, like I did from the staff here at Norwalk Community College. They offered me an education that is of top quality for half the cost of other technical or 4 year schools in my area. I really love the slogan of the school, "I created me at NCC". The have women groups and support systems set up to help you prosper and not fail.

  5. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    That the programs for Health Care are extremely full at this college. Though the advisors try to steer individuals who they feel don't qualify away from Health Care, hand in the application anyway if you're interested in the program! Their advisement while appropriate in some cases, can prevent capable students from pursuing goals they may feel confident of accomplishing. My own experience has been similiar, and while I don't regret being in the program I am in now, I still desire my previous goal which was Nursing. The Nursing program at Norwalk is exceptional.
