Many Suffer from Academic Bulimia

Today’s students face a whirlwind of challenges. Long gone are the days of students having only one hour of homework a night. In most academic environments, it is encouraged that 2-3 hours of studying should be done for each hour spent in class. Multiply that by the amount of classes a student has, and that can add up to 10 hours a day, or more. Most students are also facing other stresses, such a jobs, sports, and personal relationships. With so much going on, it is not uncommon for students to take up the practice of academic bulimia...

Then Dan said something to me that I could tell had been on his mind for quite some time...

Students and Administrators Agree:  Danbury Center Needs New Location

Students and Administrators Agree: Danbury Center Needs New Location

The NVCC Danbury Center is growing fast.  More students are signing up for classes than ever, causing an increase in students per square foot. In fact, there was a 14% increase in enrollment from fall 2012 to fall 2013, with a 26% increase in FTE (full time equivalent).
