“For my first semester of college, I attended a large university out of state. As the semester went on, I was feeling more and more detached from the experience. After some contemplation I decided that coming back home for college would be my best choice and I enrolled at NCC,” said Zach Dumelle, Business Administration Major. “That decision was one of the most worthwhile I have ever made. Every professor I’ve had at NCC has a passion for teaching. I have enjoyed the camaraderie with my peers and truly feel that I am a part of a community.”
