The Instagram account was created last fall and intended to capture campus moments while highlighting student life, academic programs, support services, transfer opportunities, athletics, career advising and more…all from a students’ perspective. It was named after the NECC knight mascot. It is designed to be an interactive tool for current and prospective students.
