Welcome to North Shore Community College! What an exciting time in your life to be standing on the verge of realizing your hopes and dreams. Along with the excitement, you might be experiencing some anxiety and fear, especially if it is your first time attending College. As you go through your time at NSCC, we hope you make many connections and learn a lot. We want you to be in an environment that feels respectful and where you feel you are included and that you belong. We also want you to learn and grow, both as a student and as a person. We hope to help you realize that taking care of yourself also means taking care of your society and giving back when you can. Most importantly, we want you to leave NSCC having successfully completed your program of study (or courses), having a strong sense of purpose, and with the tools you need to lead a meaningful life.
