Great, affordable, encouraging
Tips for prospective students
Be proactive, involve yourself in the student life activities, they usually have gift give away. There's a some student employment available so I recommend you to look into that if you want to make some extra money while going to college.
Dorm Life
This is a Technical College, so most of the people going here live at home. Most of the international students live at the UW Marathon dorms, NTC has an agreement with them and they provide the dorms and there's a bus that goes from UW Marathon to NTC back and forth.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria has an awesome salad bar, food is affordable and very good. they have a variety, and once in a while they give free samples to students.
What to do for fun
There's a cyber cafe next to the cafeteria, Student life has air hockey, play stations, TV's, Pool, Ping pong and those tables of mini soccer. NTC also has a wellness center so If you want to stay in shape it's free for staff members and students.
Bang for the buck
I believe the cost of the tech is very reasonable, all the teachers I have had are awesome, you learn a lot for sure!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Student life does events once in a while that I think not all colleges do, for example we had a Dr. Seuss birthday party!
Great for these types of students
Great for students who want to save money, for those older people that wants to go back to school, for those who don't like going to campus, for those who likes going to campus. I think this college integrates students needs very well.
Clubs and Activities
There are several clubs and activities available
Campus Safety
NTC has its own ambulance, and security is very nice, they have the public safety students going around most of the time and they do a pretty good job

This college is very clean. It is easy to get to and around. I love the teacher there!
Tips for prospective students
Talk to other students and get a heads up on the best teachers for you. I have had many teachers but there are three that really stand out and I would recommend them to any one.
Academic Rigor
Some classes can be very challenging. However, they all help you to learn and if you put the time in to you studies you should have no problems.
Dorm Life
No dorms at this campus.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria is clean and stocked. I don't usually go there though. There are many fast food places off campus that are in walking distance.
What to do for fun
There are many different activities and sports available to do.
Bang for the buck
Many teachers are very dedicated to teaching you so they will spend extra time of you need them to so that you do get the best bang for your buck.
Great for these types of students
Great for all students that want to start or to finish school.
Clubs and Activities
Many clubs and activities. I don't participate in any though. I have heard many good thing about them though.

Northcentral Technical College is very helpful. I also like the gym, because it helps keep me active. It is a great place to earn a college degree.
Tips for prospective students
Try to think about what you want to do before you decide to go back to school. My best advice is to wait a year after high school before going back to school, because it can really help you make the right decision.
Academic Rigor
This is a great school and everyone is helpful in making sure you are taken care of for you education needs.
Dorm Life
This is a technical school/college, so I am not sure there are actually any dorms on campus.
Food and Dining
I have heard the food and dining is great, though I personally haven't had the opportunity to try it myself.
What to do for fun
On campus I know there is a gym and a library. I am not sure what else is going on, but I know the campus offers social events and other events to get students involved.
Bang for the buck
I would say that this school is definitely worth going to and is cheaper than other colleges in town, and they are accredited in more than others also.
Campus Safety
I would say the campus is one of the safest I have been on, and or around. There is security guards on campus, and it is a drug and gun free campus.
