I am a arts & science major. My school does a very great job with making sure you graduate with the right classes to transfer. All classes I am taking are challenging but useful. Picking this school to receive my associates from was a great idea and i'm really enjoying it.

Everything you could need is located close to each other.

The classes are smaller making the learning more one on one accessible. You get to know a ton of people.

Only day off for our library is Saturday. They close at 9:00pm. Open at 7:00am. They are very convenient. Only issue is they don't have much of a book collection and compared to other schools there book variety is slim. But they have excellent tutoring. Computer center is also outstanding. Small campus makes it easier to get around and hear about activities going on. That is a plus. The gym is open to anyone and open really early before classes even start so there is always time to get a workout in.

I am going for a associates in science to transfer and get my engineering degree somewhere else. Most of my classes are small compared to universities. I like this because it makes you less intimidated and more confident when it comes to talking to your professor and other peers in your class. My math teacher is also my adviser which really helps me and my class choices. Teachers are caring and really easy to talk to and the ones I have seem to care about my well-being.

The internet network is really slow and you will have issues with it. The campus is decent but at times it feels like it is really a rivalry between east side and west side. East side is where most of the agriculture majors and farmers are. West side consist of students that plan on transferring to a four year and students of color. At times it feels as if the campus is segregated but besides petty high school drama everyone seems to get along.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
You have to live in county to get the Hope Scholarship for 2.5 GPA, otherwise it is 3.75 for out of county and not many HS grads have that high of a GPA going to a community college. However, once in, if you maintain a 3.0 or accumulate 50 hrs in the CLC (which isn't hard) you get the Vision $1,000 scholarship for the next semester.

I think that the office people that give services in Financial Aid & Tuition are very helpful. They take all calls in a timely manner. When I have went to this office they have been kind & always answers my questions.

I think that after a lot of people get done going to this college they are continuing to a higher education.

I think that my school is a lot of young kids, but some older students. It is a smaller school with sociable kids & good teachers. All ready to take the next step in their lives.

For a junior college, I was surprised at the resources available. This college has a two-story athletic center, its own theater, and even its own dorms, which is pretty much unheard of in a junior college.

In terms of class registration, I had a really easy time, as the school offered paper schedules to help pick out the classes, then one could either go to a counselor and get registered there or register themselves online. Every teacher is required to have a posted office time so student's can come and talk to the teachers, and the CLC (the learning center) is open late so students can come in and get tutoring.

I am in the process of acquiring an Associate's degree from this school, and considering the criteria for this degree, I have been very pleased with the classes I have taken. However, my experience may very well be biased, considering I have only been at the college for two semesters now--as I fulfilled most of my academic requirements through concurrent enrollment--and have taken mostly arts classes, which I love.

The professors are incredible. There are few if any other public institutions where you can get this kind of one on one help in math and science from actual professors. 200-level math and science courses are HARD. Grads from here often go on to prestigious tech schools like Colo School of Mines, so the professors go out of their way to make sure the curriculum is up to snuff. People who manage a B or better in calculus here would get the same grade on MIT's calc finals.

Math/physics department offers excellent instruction with professors available for one-on-one help in the math study room most of the day.
Chemistry dept is one person (overtasked) and under-funded. Lab time is poorly structured and the equipment is ancient to obsolete.
Bio dept offers excellent instruction, and labs are modern.
School places WAY too high a priority on extracurricular activities like baseball and rodeo when deciding where to spend their money. The fixtures and equipment in the chemistry and physics labs all appear to be 30 or more years old, while the athletic center and ag departments appear to get new equipment like weekly.
Best engineering prep school in Colorado, as they are the only 2 year school in the state to offer engineering physics, calc I&II and engineering statics. The math and physics department here really are something special. People who do well here can get into Colorado School of Mines, New Mexico Tech, and other prestigious technical colleges. Not for the lazy though, as you WILL be challenged.

DO NOT GO HERE! Save yourself! My experience here has been a horror. The town this college is located in is miserable. The teachers are decent because the class sizes are so small; they are forced to interact with you so I appreciated that aspect. However, the administrative staff here at NJC make it very difficult for you to succeed. Everything has a paper trail and is foreign to them. Its relatively inexpensive to attend here, but other than that there is NOTHING the school has to offer. Many students come here and we all talk at lunch how we plan on transferring. One semester of this place is enough to drain you of any desire to go to college. My advice is to find another options. This is not just one person’s bad experience, this is the general opinion of the students at NJC. Good luck and look somewhere else!

Majority of my school are students from rural areas who are majoring in an agriculture degree. There are also a lot of students who are recruited for the basketball, volleyball, soccer, and baseball teams. The minority of students in our school are the students who chose Northeastern Junior College on their own. Between the dorms, you can see a lot of diversity from the different degrees offered at Northeastern Junior College.

The classes here at Northeastern Junior College are the size of high school classes, so they are generally 20 students on average. This makes for the professors to be much more involved with the students and their grades. It also makes for the curriculum to run much smoother since the professors can personally know the students. To register here, all you need is a computer. This makes the registration process less difficult and more independent. Lastly, there are many free tutors offered in the library that any of the students can use.

I am an undecided major and so therefore the classes I have taken have been very random. This was a nice way of introducing many topics so I could learn more about other majors. For example, Northeastern Junior College offers a more challenging business program where I was able to try out a major I was interested in. The workload within my businesses classes was challenging, yet rewarding.

I had an online class this summer. I found it very engaging and fun. Because it was online, reading the online text book was a must. It was not difficult if you studied, just like any other test. I enjoyed it.

Surprisingly, the demographics at NJC are very diverse. There students from all sizes, shapes and colors, as well as ages. There are many different clubs, activities, and sports students from all over the spectrum are involved in.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
