Student Success

Noel Badia, Information Technology-Networking and Security Associate Degree Program

After long months of hard work and dedication, the celebration of success is the best reward.

Hello, My Name is Noel Badia, I am from the Dominican Republic. After being out of school for almost ten years, I have successfully prepared to return to college thanks to the Transition to College Program.

Transition to College helped me to improve my English, reading, listening, writing, and math skills. I improved my vocabulary, comprehension, time management, understanding of the U.S.A. college system, and I learned how to make better decisions. Computer Applications taught me that no matter how easy it looks, there is always more to learn.

I am currently enrolled at Northern Essex Community College in the Information Technology-Networking and Security Associate Degree Program. Thanks to the Transition to College Program, I am one step closer to my dreams.

My name is Ayat Althayer. I am originally from Amman, Jordan. I would like to study Business and Accounting in college. In the Transition to College Program at NECC, I learned about the culture and expectations of college. The Transition Program also helped me to become academically prepared to succeed in college.

The Transition to College Program helped me very much. I was out of school for a long time and always wanted to go back to college but I was hesitant because English is not my first language (I was born in Brazil). The program helped me with everything I needed to succeed; writing, reading, math, time management and computer applications. Today I have the confidence I can take a class in legal Studies and do well. I’m thankful for the chance I had to participate in this program and to the teachers that really care about our success.

I’m Dominican and I want to study Business Management. A relevant lesson I learned in the Transition to College Program at NECC is that, whatever you want to accomplish, you can do it. No matter how hard your situation is, always trust your potential.
