Schuyler Cranker, Class of 2020
Why did you decide to enroll  at North Country? NCCC was a close, affordable option that would not sacrifice the quality of my education. Additionally, it allowed me to have a more personal experience for the first two years of my higher education.
What was your experience like here as a student? How were the classes? How were the instructors? I had a fabulous experience. The class sizes were a perfect balance of size, not too big or too small, and varied experiences from both the instructors and my peers. The instructors were all knowledgeable and eager to teach, and the unique setting of NCCC allowed them to provide a much more personal experience.
How did your education at North Country prepare you for what came after, and what you’re doing now? North Country, in addition to my diploma, provided me people skills for a high education setting, the chance to learn from people of many different backgrounds, and the ability to remain organized with the new online component that is unanimous with most all courses nowadays.
Would you recommend North Country to someone? Why? Absolutely. NCCC was hands down two of the best years of my education. They were able to provide me a quality education, at an affordable price, in a smaller more personable setting, all while surrounded by people of varying backgrounds and experiences.
