I love the campus here at neci , the staff and student relationship is incredible , they really do care about getting students educated and with the internships options it helps students with real world jobs! The dorms are a clean and safe environment and housing options are great. Overall I am really blessed and excited to open a new chapter of my life starting with my education at neci!

I have a passion for what I do, and NECI helps me reach my goals of becoming a great chef, NECI pushes me to try harder. I did a volunteer day with the head pastry chef at NECI for the holidays where I got to decorate Christmas cookies with little children all day, it was an unforgettable experience. Along with my volunteer work with Chef Jim where I helped judge a junior chef competition. All of my teachers have made an impact on my life as a person and culinary student. I made the best decision of my life by choosing to attend New England Culinary Institute, small class to teacher ratio, all hands on work to show what the industry is exactly like, and the teachers care. If I could choose my college all over again I only would have changed my start date at NECI so right when I finished high school I could have started school the next week. I never complain about class, I look forward to going to school I love everything about New England Culinary Institute.

I love my school, glad I'm not living in the dorms and have my own rules, however, that is not the problem with my school. I've gotten a great education here at NECI, however the financial aid department would do better if it wasn't there. For the past two years, while living off-campus, my family has had myriads of trouble trying to simply get a bottom line tuition for the year. Last year my parents were arguing with the financial aid and wasn't able to get a bottom-line number to take out the loan until JANUARY! This year, DECEMBER! All because every year my parents get statements with different remaining balances/bottom-line numbers. This financial aid department lacks in almost every category and sends out the information and simply receives the information, they don't check the math, or really even know all the different components. We end up getting charged for things I don't want or need, etc. NECI's Financial Aid Department has made my parents hate my school and can't wait until I graduate and they don't have to deal with the uninformed staff, who refers you back and forth between each member, none of them answering the question you really wanted.
