The support system at NBCC starts in admissions and involves each and every staff member of this college. I succeeded here in part because of the character of both the institution and the people employed within it. I wholeheartedly believe NBCC to be the epitome of what every community college should be and honestly I cannot overstate the positive impact it had on my life.
