Attendees also received assistance with email and online resources, purchased textbooks and supplies, and got their student ID, parking pass, and library card. Additionally, representatives from UNCW, ECU, Barton College, NCWC, NC A&T and NCSU were on-site to assist returning and new students interested in transfer.
In addition to offering guidance before the start of classes, NCC has enhanced its student support resources in the Advising Center. The new center provides a physical space on the second floor of the library where staff assist students with advising and registration. “The Advising Center was created to provide a higher quality of advising to students. College success is so much more than just registering for classes. It’s about coaching students along their path. Each path is different and each student deserves individual advice for their goals,” Guy said.
Other resources exist such as tutoring services and the Student Wellness Center where students are empowered with personal, social, and community resources for self-development and personal enrichment. NCC also provides students with free cardio and weight room access and other fitness and wellness resources including a 2.5-mile fitness and nature trail in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles.
