5 College Senior

Academic Experience: At NVCC, my studies include a lot of hands on work as well as book work. This is fantastic for someone like me because I learn by doing. Having book work is never a problem either because the professors we have are well educated and know that they are there to help us, not just to make money. After a year, I got an internship working at a facility that does landscaping for properties near a lake. During this internship, I was able to earn college credit. I learned so much there and now I can use that knowledge in my future classes at this school and other schools as well. I am very happy in this major and I'm grateful that a community college offers it.

Academic Experience: I have been challenged in both my academic classes and my arts classes equally as hard. The professors there care about the success of their students and are more than willing to help them better themselves. The best thing about the classes is that they are small, so you know your professors well and can build lasting connections and relationships with them.

Academic Experience: People often say community colleges aren't really up to par since the community colleges and that they're easier and such, but honestly I feel like it's all about what you take, how interested YOU actually are, what you decide to do with what you learned, and so forth. I feel as though my academic experience so far has definitely been challenging on many bases, but also very rewarding because I learned a lot more than just the generic "educational" aspect of things. You learn a lot about yourself, your ambitions, certain strengths and weaknesses, time management which is huge, and networking which is most definitely important for friendships, opportunities, and careers.

Academic Experience: So far, as a marketing major my classes have fulfilled me with interesting, yet real world information.
