NCCC Mascot:

The Northwestern Moose!

The Moose was selected to be the mascot of Northwestern CT Community College after a campus and community wide nomination process and voting in November 2019. A formal announcement will be made in late Spring 2020. The delay in the announcement that was expected in early February 2020 was due to a closure of overseas facilities that produced the mascot costume due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak.

Volunteer Opportunities and Community Service

Integrating academic achievement with community involvement is a priority at NCCC. Not only does it help NCCC neighbors in need, it also helps students achieve their personal and career goals. Mainly because if you’re thinking about transferring to a four-year college or university after your time at NCCC, those schools often look for community service on transfer applications. Many large corporations also look for community service work on job applications. There are many opportunities at NCCC to get involved and make a difference!
