Navarro College is a nice and hospitable school. The staffs are very welcoming and ever ready to assist you in whatever you need. Also, It is a school that will help each prospective student solidify their foundation into higher education.
Tips for prospective students
Always ask questions even if you think it sounds stupid, still ask because you never know, your questions might end up helping you get the right assistance you need.
What to do for fun
In as much as it is a small town, there are so many activities being hosted in the school resident life hall and there are also pizza's to be eaten and gifts to be won.
Bang for the buck
Navarro College is actually worth every penny, as it is very cheap compared to other two-year colleges.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The school is a no-smoke zone, so you can always go to the apartment directly opposite the dorms and smoke.
Great for these types of students
Navarro College is good for freshly-out-of-high school students, as it is a two-year college and doesn't have all the fanciness of a four-year college.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs and activities, you would never get tired of them as it is always fun each day. And meetings are always short.
Greek Life
There is no greek life at Navarro College, but we have so many kickbacks and end of the semester parties that will blow your freaking mind. trust me!!
Campus Safety
The campus is safe 24/7 as we have police officers moving around the campus in the evening time checking on the safety of the students, staff and school in general.

Navarro College inspires growth.
With Navarro, paying for education is affordable.
Navarro College cares about your education and success.
Tips for prospective students
Tips for those looking into attending Navarro College would be this:
Get to know your instructors by visiting them during office hours and do not be afraid to ask them for advice or help, connect with your classmates, and lastly, involve yourself in the numerous clubs and activities Navarro has to offer.
Academic Rigor
Academic success is important to the instructors here. If one needs help with understanding an assignment or tutoring, help is readily available, if one seeks it out. The classwork is enough to keep you busy, but still become involved with outside clubs and organizations. If one works hard and shows their instructor effort, then one's grade will reflect grandly.
Dorm Life
Community rings true with dorm life, here, at Navarro College. The RA's communicate actively with residents and there are lots of neat offers for those involved with dorm life. Barbeque and crawfish cookouts are just a couple events hosted by the Resident Life crew. Their commitment and dedication to the residents are superb, all the while accomplishing their own academic pursuits.
Food and Dining
I was certainly impressed with the variety of choices Navarro's food and dining has to offer. This year, in the month of March, National Health Month was celebrated by introducing new, healthier food choices in the school's cafeteria. This change was for the interest of those looking for healthier, more vegetarian food choices which is great for a growing college. The college not only hosts a cafeteria, but a deli, as well. Access is simple, fast, and easy. Food portions are aplenty and caters to every culture.
What to do for fun
There are plenty of sources for those looking for something fun to do at the Navarro College campus. Participating in one of the thirty clubs on campus is a sure fire way to become involved with others, the community, make friends, and also have a great time. The town itself caters to Navarro College residents by offering student discounts at places such as CiCi's, the Bowling Alley, Denny's, and Pollo Regio.
Clubs and Activities
There are up to thirty different clubs and organizations offered at Navarro, and plenty of opportunity to start a club of your own if you wish. Leo CLub, for instance offers community service projects, which not only involves college students but also to the surrounding community. The Honors Program offers community service and academic excellence and comes with a few benefits upon acceptance. A newly formed club called, The International Justice Mission, or IJM, focuses on helping and aiding those bound in human trafficking cases. There are social, academic major based, and volunteer clubs here that would suit anyone's personality.

Am learning a lot
The teachers I have had, especially in the science and math departments, are very good about teaching you exactly what you need to know. They show interest in the subject that they teach, and they guide you when need be.
Am enjoying being here
I have been to both the Corsicana and Waxahachie campuses for courses. Both of them are very clean, the teachers and administrators are friendly, and they love seeing their students excel.
Bang for the buck
The teachers are worth it, and so are some of the staff. However, their financial aid department (on the Waxahachie campus) leave much to be desired. They are not very helpful, and they are very matter-of-fact. That would not be a bad thing if they actually helped you and guided you. I am a first generation college attendee, and they gave me no help or guidance. So, for my associate's degree, I had to pay out of pocket. You'll have to learn on your own, or (maybe) go to the Corsicana campus for help.
Tips for prospective students
Utilize the Corsicana campus for all financial needs, or learn on your own. Make the most of your experience by doing well in your classes, and definitely go for an associate's degree. The core curriculum required for it will automatically transfer (plus a few more hours) to any Texas school [possibly others, too]. The degree makes it to where the school has to accept 60+ hours of your courses, and it cannot be picked apart. They can, however, throw things out such as orientation, but they still credit you with a few hours from it at the school you transfer to.
Great for these types of students
Frugal, introverted, new to college life, interested learners, and those that just want a new degree
