One of the fantastic features of the NSCC which I hope that every community college/trade school either has or plans on having is the Test Drive. (click here for more information) The simple premise? Have potential students that are considering a program in the school spend a day participating in a class.
The program sounded so fantastic that I volunteered to participate in the part of the student that had other’s follow me for the day. I found it an extremely rewarding experience, as I was able to mentor others for the day. I was able to quell any fears and answer questions.
I spent the 2013-2014 school year apart of the program, having about 1-2 students per month join me. While only a few ended up in the Business Administration program, I enjoyed talking with the variety of people during that time.
