Cameron Smith, recruiter for North Florida Community College (NFCC), spoke to Rotary on Wednesday, Oct. 22 about the benefits of attending a community college before transferring to a university.
NFCC can offer individual attention to a student and help the student’s transition from high school to college be smoother and more affordable. Other benefits to a student attending NFCC that Smith discussed are: allowing students time to figure out what they want to do in the future; give the students a second chance to improve GPA’s and build resumes; and give the student confidence and the motivation to push further in their education.
Articulation agreements are two plus two agreements that NFCC has with every state university in Florida and Valdosta State University. With this agreement, students who attend NFCC and graduate will be able to attend any of the state universities.
New programs added to NFCC that Smith and NFCC are excited about are Business Development and Entrepreneurship program, Automation and Production Technology program and Online Network Security program.
