Naugatuck Valley Community College
Naugatuck Valley Community College - Comments and Student Experiences|
1.Staff: The people that this school hires are horrible! Admissions is a joke they mess everything up and make it difficult to get anything done. Records is also a mess, I asked once to change my english class (never said I was going too) then without my permission they dropped me from the class and I had to fight with them to get it back. I would say 90% of the staff is rude and unhelpful, but thinks they"re the best.
2. Admin Staff: They are generally nicer and more helpful than the lower down folk. But some of them will try and sell you a fake message that this school is so wonderful.
3. Advisors: Again, a few are good, but make your own class list and plans, don't let the school do it. They don't really care about you. You have to care about you.
Also, stay away from Terry Latrella!!! She is rude and unhelpful and loves to put others down. I have no idea why she is still working there.
4.Campus grounds: Boring. Tech hall is the nicest part and has a wonderful modern look to it, but the rest needs to be re-done! Hell, when I was in massachusetts, most of their community colleges had nicer campuses than NVCC. Oh, and parking is a huge mess.
5:Professors: I came here in jan.2013 and have only had about 2-3 really great professors, the rest or majority is re-tired rude high school teachers.
6. Student body: blah! lackluster students who don't talk to anyone outside of their friend group. Cliqueish and stereotypical. People chill with their high school or "town" groups. Nobody is open-minded at all and some of the kids are so rude and judgmental. It feels like another year of high school.
7.Clubs/Events:Wack. Same 20-30 people in each of the clubs. The school newspaper is okay, but it comes off as a sad high school version instead of a college one. Events are a hit or miss. They never seem to advertise the events a lot so yeah.
8. Safety: It is an overall safe campus but I still don't let my guard down.
9.Classes: Some very easy, some are hard but nothing too much. They seem to give a lot more busywork than anything.
10.You get what you pay for: Red flag number 2! Do not go to a college just because it is cheap! or because it is expensive either! Pick a school that fits you the best.
11.Sports: None wish there was something here!Overall, a lackluster commuter school located on the edge of a lower income city. NVCC isn't the worst college out there but make sure you really like it before you commit.
