Registration for summer, fall begins at NECC

Registration for the summer and fall semesters is now open at Northern Essex Community College.

The school is offering many different options for classes.

There will be in person classes, only for health and stem classes unless the pandemic improves as stated on NECC’s website. There will be online classes, online classes with required zoom meetings and hybrid classes. This time students have more range to pick what suits them.

Caroline Hamilton who is studying psychology at NECC says that she is registering for the fall semester. She was aware of all the different options.

Hamilton says, “I think the options of classes are good because they allow for face to face interaction for students and their peers.” She also said that the new options will add structure and new ways of learning during the pandemic.

Jocelyn Avila-Frias, another student at NECC says she is registering for the summer semester.

She praised NECC and said, “I do think they did a great job in giving us so many different options.”

Avila-Frias said she though that it will better complement the many different students at the school.

It is still not entirely clear if by Fall, we will return to normal.

Recently there have been spikes across the USA due to recent events like Spring Break.

What will occur if more classes are in person comes into question, however Hamilton and Avila-Frias express confidence.

Hamilton said, “I don’t have many concerns.”

In the end she believes the classes will benefit people who are tired of online classes.
