Career services at my school is very beneficial for students. It helps students in various ways whether it be jobs/internships, career goals, etc. This fall I will do a better job with using this resource because everyone at career services are very passionate about making sure each student is being helped wherever they might need it.

Overall, I feel the professors do care about each and every student. Although I had my differences with of couple of them I still had my share of favorite instructors as well. There's a wide variety of courses offered that's related to my major and the quality of those courses are excellent. Class sizes angle depending on what class it is but I would prefer smaller classes than bigger ones to give me more of a connection with my professor about the course.

Overall, I enjoyed my first year of college at Nccu. I thought it would be hard transitioning from high school into college but it seemed that at my school, the staff tried to make everyone feel at ease about being away from home for a entire school year. I think what makes my school unique is the events that take place on campus. The atmosphere around campus was always full of energy, so whenever there was an event or anything it would always end up being fun for all the students. If I could do it all over I would still choose Nccu because not only does the staff care about my succes but will do the best they can on helping me for whatever I need as a student.
