H says "Northeastern was the best choice because I got what I wanted. NJC made it happen. I loved the community environment on campus and how I got to know all of my instructors. It was challenging, but I always had the resources I needed to help me succeed. Even though I have graduated, NJC continues to be a great resource for me."
