Did learn a lot
I enjoyed almost all of my classes; the instructors were helpful, explained things clearly, and made learning easy! My favorite classes were the Administrative Assistant/IT ones and my Spanish classes.
Did enjoy being here
While I didn't use the main campus in Norfolk, every time I went there people were friendly and helpful, I didn't feel like I was bugging anyone when I needed help. I would give 10 stars to the West Point education center, they are super nice, friendly, helpful, and if they don't know the answer they know who to contact!
Bang for the buck
Totally worth every penny I spent here! I got sticker shock when looking at colleges to transfer too, NECC must be one of the last Nebraskan colleges with a per semester credit hour cost of under $100! (As of August, 2011)
Tips for prospective students
Ask lots of questions, especially of your advisor. Don't just plan by semester like I did, make a two-year game plan so you don't have anything come back to bite you when/if you transfer to another college. Also, don't take the bookstore prices for granted, do your research! I've saved so much $$ from renting books online and buying used.
Great for these types of students
Motivated, self-diciplined students can whiz through the gen-ed's by taking CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests, administered by the College Board through NECC's test center. It's a great money and time saver; I got through my first 2 years of college in just 17 months!

In three sentences
It's small. Almost everyone knows everyone else. Teachers are great.
Tips for prospective students
Don't wait until your drowning in homework to seek tutoring. There's also free counseling (sometimes the stress gets to you so don't be afraid to visit them)
Academic Rigor
Stay on top of the work.
Dorm Life
Some people are really loud and you can hear right through the walls.
Food and Dining
I have no issue with it.
What to do for fun
They have a lot of activities from sporting events, to Monday Movie Night (free pop and popcorn to first 50), and Wacky Wednesdays (cosmic bowling, swimming at YMCA, etc.)
Bang for the buck
It's relatively cheap with good-quality teachers.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Nothing that I know of so far.
Great for these types of students
If you like one on one time with your teacher and like being able to raise your hand and ask a question then this is the place for you.
Clubs and Activities
There's actually quite a few: theater, Student Ambassadors, basketball, intramurals, etc.
Greek Life
Don't really have any.
Campus Safety
We have a 24/7 campus cop.

NECC was a great experience. The campus is smaller than most. The size of NECC is a plus when considering the amount of students in each class at a regular university. If you're concerned about $$, the cost was pretty resonable compared to other colleges.
Tips for prospective students
Go to class, be on time, do the work, and you will be good to go.
Academic Rigor
For most courses this was excellent.
Dorm Life
I couldn't tell you. I never lived in the dorms.
Food and Dining
I never ate the food. However, from what I hear it is pretty good.
Great for these types of students
This place is great for students (depending on what you want to go into) who are looking to get their 2-year out of the way, and possibly wanting to transfer over to a 4 year college. It is also great for students who just want to get their Gen. Eds finished.

NECC offers a ton of programs for people to choose from. It's great if you don't know what you want to do for sure yet. It's not a waste of money if you change your mind because it's very affordable.
Tips for prospective students
Get all your paperwork in and done on time and you'll have no problems.
Academic Rigor
Classes are very easy to understand. Instructors do a great job of making time to help you if you need it and they know you as a person not just as a number.
Dorm Life
I loved my dorm experience! The only problem was all the rules. But I loved having all my best friends right down the hall or in the same building. It makes it easy to connect with people.
Food and Dining
Always a variety of food, so there is alway something differnt to choose from.
What to do for fun
Monday Night at the Movies
Wacky Wednesdays
Bang for the buck
Getting the same classes as other more expensive schools for a fraction of the price. I only have about $1000 in loans to pay off compared to $20,000.
Great for these types of students
Anyone really! But there are a lot of farming/small town students here.
Clubs and Activities
There is a club for almost every program of study here! If you don't find one to join then you're not looking very hard because there is something for everyone.
Campus Safety
We have Sioux City Night Patrol on campus 24/7 to keep things under control. From giving out parking tickets to walking you to your car after a night class they are a great asset to the campus.

Smaller than the average college, but definitely worth the money to go there!
Tips for prospective students
Do well on your ACT--they accept almost everyone, but if you work hard you will get better scholarships!
Dorm Life
Most of the people are very friendly that live in the dorms and aren't afraid to help you.
Bang for the buck
Cheapest college I know!
