I am an honors student who puts 110% of effort into my classes but sadly the teachers and advising employers are corrupt. I am a first generation college student in my family and had zero support or guidance on how to pursue my future career. I am struggling trying to make ends meet and this school is evidently unorganized. Now, some of the teachers i've had on the other hand loved seeing you "fail" as well as ignore every email you send them. Dont get me wrong though, i've had professors who helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel! Nobody said school would be easy, but at least take charge and "teach" if you want to be addressed as "Dr." or "professor.

Ps. I have a 3.7 GPA and am involved in multiple extracurricular activities. I just don't think it's fair to struggle paying for school full time with absolutely zero help and having to drop a course because the professor thinks it's okay to base 75% of your final grade on 3 tests whom you have an hour to complete. I'm a biology major yet got stuck with a physics 2 professor who is teaching advanced mechanical engineering 2.

I love Northern Essex so much. The school is filled with professors who actually care about the students. Every time I go to the school, I feel like I'm at home. So many wonderful people attend the school. The fact that it is a community college really brings everyone together like a family. I wouldn't change anything!

Grab Bag – I titled this review &quot;Grab Bag&quot; because the chances of getting a professor that likes what they do and is there solely for the love of teaching students is about 50%.

When I was little, I'd buy a grab bag from the store, open it, and like some of the pieces of candy or toys, and throw away the rest. Northern Essex is very similar, only I can't throw anything away! One professor wouldn't give me the time of day when I wanted to review my grades and ask a few questions throughout the semester. Another professor would do anything for me if it meant I was happy and understanding the material.

I could never get a hold of my &quot;advisor&quot;, so every time I wanted to ask an advisor a question in person, I had to sign in to a clipboard and wait for one of the very few advisors available finish their lunch or wrap up a conversation about their weekend with their co workers. Un-bel-ieveable!
