Physical Education Studies Catalog Information


E-mail to faculty from a NCCC Physical Education Studies Program graduate: "I just wanted to update you on how I have been doing lately. Academically very well. After my first year at {transfer institution} I have accumulated over a 3.7 GPA, and was named to the Dean's List in consecutive semesters. Starting at NCCC was not only a smart economic decision, but a beneficial academic decision as well. NCCC allowed me access to numerous benefits, particularly being a P.E. major. The education I received from the Physical Education Faculty at NCCC was second to none. The Professors here are also exceptional; however I feel as if I am always one step ahead of the majority of students."
