Using my post 9/11 GI Bill at NSC allowed me to make the best of my education and pursue my career goals. The Veterans Services office was very helpful in making the whole process run smoothly. Veterans Services, Worker Retaining, and the faculty and staff at North made my experience in college very positive.
