Nice school. A lot of distance ed options and with the mall site in Christiansburg, I don't have to drive all the way to Dublin. Very nice!

NRCC has a warm and welcoming staff. They have a great selection of classes both in-person and online. I found the counselors to be well-informed and helpful.
