“I love how the professors bring in outside knowledge and real-life experiences to their lessons. This makes classes more enjoyable and connects what you learn to the real world. Niagara County Community College (NCCC) is very affordable. The first two years of college are about finding what you want to do for a career and getting comfortable in the college setting. NCCC allows you to be fluid with your degree choice and offers support services and opportunities to succeed. After NCCC I am transferring into a four-year school to continue working towards a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.”
