Student Feedback

I thought it was well organized with the set up.

What I value the most about NSA is how organized it is and how much I have learned. The types of assignments I found most beneficial were the projects you had us do. I really enjoyed this class.

This was one of my favorite classes so far! I enjoyed it very much.
