To our NSCC Alumni & Friends,

I can’t even begin to imagine all the ways you and your loved ones have been impacted in these recent days. In the events of COVID-19, we are called to change our routines and plans for the good of others and ourselves, in order to stay healthy and safe.

Here at NSCC, our students, faculty and staff are undergoing huge amounts of change as well. Remote learning is in full force as our campus is closed to the public, and many special functions and gatherings have been postponed in order to protect our students, families and neighbors.

Even through times of difficulty, we learn. Our mission remains strong. As we navigate this new territory together, you are an important part of the community that we trust and believe in, and for this we thank you.

Although we are physically apart, we are still very much connected. Our students, faculty and staff could use your support and community during this difficult time. I encourage you to stay connected with us in one of the following ways:

  • Network with both students and fellow alumni by following us on our alumni & friends Facebook page, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Post a video, photo or written message on social media using #NSCCProud.
  • Share words of encouragement to our students by sending well wishes to
  • Also, our virtual door at the NSCC Alumni Office is open. Please feel free to reach out to us at

No matter what lies ahead, we look forward to getting there with you as a part of our NSCC family. Together, we are #NSCCProud.

With hope and gratitude, Robbin Wilcox Executive Director, NSCC Alumni Association & NSCC Foundation
