Do not come to this college. It is the biggest mistake I have made. There is nothing to do in this town, its very tough if you don't have a car. The students are very close minded. Honestly this college feels like high school all over again. It is very clicky & there is so much drama. I think the reason why there is so much drama & clicks is because the school is so small & because it is so small it makes it feel like a continuation of high school. The food is disgusting. I don't know how they expect us to eat this crap everyday. If you have the money stay away from the dinning hall.

Don't worry you are not annoying. You will regret the drama at NEC.

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

I have just completed my freshman year at NEC! I am training to be a teacher and just wanted to share my experience so far. The courses are very interesting and relevant, and I have found them to very useful. You get a lot of real world experience; for example, I have just completed a first year student teaching class, which is a rarity that many schools save till your final year. I have also been a paid intern at a local school, thanks to my college's work study program. I would definitely advice new students to not be afraid to inquire about these sorts of opportunities; they are a great way to improve your teaching skills and enhance your resumé. Potential non-education majors; there are a wide variety of similar internships based on your interests and field of study, whatever it might be! The academic advisors here are especially dedicated and useful. For example, my advisor was happy to create a degree audit for me as I am hoping to graduate a year early. Now I know that this is possible, and I can work towards getting a full time job in education. In short, if you are hoping to become a teacher, I would definitely look into New England College as a good alternative to public colleges. It offers a very comprehensive and experiential program. The nice location and friendly students and faculty are also a bonus! I am extremely excited that NEC is helping me to go out into the world as a dedicated and competent Special Education (K-12) and Elementary (K-8) educator! I look forward to seeing some of you in the future.

I was enrolled in another online college, that you were required to take a 3 week extensive orientation, before you could start regular classes! Then going into my 3 and final week they dropped me. I am curious as to how soon you will start after the basics are completed? Does this college have the same requirements? Also I'M curious about the wait with financial aid? The last college I was enrolled to says that you wouldn't receive it until 60-90 days from the date u finished orientation!!! Just curious if these things are normal.

I work full time in Law Enforcement in Vermont and really enjoyed the flexibility of the online Masters CJ/L program offered by NEC. Course work was well planned and organized. I especially enjoyed the interaction from other CJ professionals. Co-workers have attended similar programs at other colleges and were not as pleased as I was with the online experience. I highly recommend the CJ/L program.

I have not taken online classes at this school but I did receive my undergrad from NEC. It is a good liberal arts school and the teacher's are usually great. I would certainly choose NEC over the strictly online schools.

I attended the New England College Online class for my Masters in Real Estate (MSRE) and I received this degree in 2007. I enjoyed the experience greatly since I was already working a full-time job so balancing that schedule with the ability to access the classroom at my leisure was very convenient. There are plenty of ways to interact with classmates and professors and everyone was very cordial and helpful (even though we never actual met). If I could do this again I definitely would and would recommend this experience to others who seek to obtain their MSRE.

Would You Recommend This College?
New England College was ideally located about an hour outside of Boston, which took me out of the city but not so far that I could not visit. The classes were exciting and encouraged participation. The faculty was highly trained and enthusiastic about their classes, which fostered an atmosphere for fun and learning. My New England College degree played a huge part in landing my current teaching position--school boards are well aware of its reputation.

I really feel like choosing New England College was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The faculty and student body are amazing. I know I received a great education here; I was definitely prepared for graduate school and I will be successful in the future. I do not have anything negative to say about this school. Go Pilgrims!
