"Studying at Niagara College online is a new experience to me. It helps me manage my own time using several tools like Blackboard calendar or MS Outlook. The teachers are accommodating and helpful especially to international students like me during this challenging time of pandemic."
"Have an understanding and accommodating professors that are willing to answer my queries through email. They give advices on how to manage my time schedule in a week. Being a student at NC is challenging but proper time management and perseverance to learn new things will surely help you get through each semester."
"Additionally, various services are available to address the different needs of students. Also, going forward in the program becomes a lot easier and learning is more fun and meaningful as I build acquaintances along the way. Overall, I am having a great experience as a student at Niagara College."
