Submitted by on March 29, 2011 – 2:47 pm

Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of a Northern Essex Community College student was like? Are you a high school student thinking about attending NECC or an adult who has always toyed with enrolling at NECC for that long sought after degree or certificate? Well, NECC’s “College for a Day,” program on Wednesday, April 20, from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on the Haverhill Campus will give participants first-hand experience in a college classroom.

“We want to give people a taste of what it’s like to be in college,” says Charles Diggs, Northern Essex’s assistant dean for enrollment services. “People can choose to sit in on just one course or spend the entire day with us.”

This event is free and open to the public. Interested individuals can register to attend by contacting admissions at 978-556-3722 Participants will start their day in the lobby of the Behrakis One-Stop Student Services Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. From there they can attend any or all of the course samplings which change every hour. In addition, campus tours, assessment testing, and information sessions will be available.

Courses that will be open to the public during that day will range from Environmental Issues to Principles of Advertising to Journalism to Introduction to Criminal Justice. For additional information and a full list of courses that will be offered, visit the college’s website at
