The professors are awesome! There are many resources available. The downside is that many of the science courses have overlapping times, which makes scheduling classes a pain. Classes are challenging and honors credit is available. Computer labs are equipped with windows 7 pc's. There are a couple of macs in the student success center. The downside to the computers are that they start slowly. Labs are accessible and full of potential to learn.

Welcome to the Main Campus – NMC's main campus is open and filled with side walks that make the winter walk to class terrible. The parking availability is horrible (Good luck finding a spot, you'll become a &quot;parking shark&quot;!) We have a gym, but it's old, and we also have a dance culb that meets in the dance room at night! The middle building is the Health&amp; Science building which has all the student information in it! To the right is the Library, with all of it's computers and quiet nooks. To the right of library is Scholars Hall, the English, photography and other related subjects building. To the left of Health &amp; Science is the cafeteria and book store. To the left of that is the dorms. The Dorms are terrible, and i wouldn't live there. I enjoy my privacy too much for that! After the dorms is the art building and across from that is the Beckett building, my building! It is the business and computers building. And lucky for me, the parking out that way is usually pretty good!

I'm an aviation major, and they are amazing! I've only gone up once, but the teachers know their stuff. Every single class I'm taking is pertinent to my major and when I am done, I WILL have a job, guaranteed. The teachers are awesome and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The course is very pricey, but it's definitely something I'm willing to pay for. Grading is easy; show up and do things right. The stress can be tough due to weather constraints and the number of students who want to fly and number of available planes. Otherwise, the workload is making sure you know your stuff and getting into the sky. Perfect, in my book
