4.    Get Fit
If you're a credit student, you can use the gym at the Bethlehem or Monroe campus, free of charge. Anyone can take advantage of personal enrichment fitness classes which include everything from belly dancing to boot camp!

5.   Learn Something New

We've got a ton of fun, interesting non-credit classes to match every personality. Want to learn to take better photos? Explore your creative side? Learn to play golf? Cook like a top chef? There is something for everyone with NCC enrichment classes!

6.   Take a Trip
Our students have had the opportunity to study abroad in places like France, Russia, Denmark, Peru, Turkey, and Costa Rica! Learn a new language as a credit student or with enrichment courses.

7.   Spend More Time with Family!
Wondering what to do for date night with your significant other? Try Hampton Winds for a fine dining experience. Or take a personal enrichment class with your partner. Learn to dance or take a yoga class together.

Bring the kids to the Cops 'n Kids Reading Room, located at NCC's Fowler Family Southside Center, for fun, free activities for children ages preschool through grade 6.

8. Volunteer to Help Others
NCC has a strong commitment to service learning and gives students the opportunity to help their community in conjunction with their classroom instruction. For more information about service learning at NCC or to volunteer, students can contact Stanley Ebede, director of the Center for Civic and Community Engagement, at sebede@northampton.edu

9.   Socialize More in Real Life than Online
There's more to college than classes, studying, and exams! NCC has a vibrant campus life with parties, dances, and club events. We've also got an excellent Athletic Department - become a student-athlete, a fan, or both!

10.         Be Less Stressed
Credit students have lots of stress-busting tools at the ready! For academic stress, stop by the Learning Center. Not only can you get free tutoring in many different subjects, but you can also get tips on organization and time management. Students who need someone to talk to can take advantage of the free counseling services offered at the college.

With a personal enrichment Health & Wellness course, anyone can unwind. Wishing you a  peaceful 2020!
