At first, Jocelyn said she was a “little nervous” about taking college-level classes and working alongside older students. However, she said she found a good community at NCC. “The other students were like ‘cool, welcome to the club,’” Jocelyn said, “I made a ton of friends here. Everywhere I went, it felt like a fun and relaxing and exciting place to be. I liked hanging out here. It felt like a good community.”

After graduation, Jocelyn moved on to UNH Manchester to study electrical engineering; something she began here at NCC. For her capstone project, Jocelyn created a cat-activated motion detector that opens the bathroom door when her cat is locked out. “It allows her to have access to the bathroom when I’m away—it was a complete success!”
