Amber Hess, Alum

Amber Hess followed in her parents' footsteps in coming to NCC, and studied Criminal Justice to carry on the law enforcement legacy of her grandfather, uncle and father. "I wanted to start somewhere close to home, and I've always heard how amazing the professors at NCC are," she says.

NCC changed Amber for the better. "I've gained more academic skills than I ever thought possible, and developed critical thinking skills that I apply to everything I do now."

Amber's advice to prospective students? "Sometimes it's hard, and a lot of work, but you can do it! You'll be a stronger learner, a stronger leader, and a stronger team member."
