Freshmen disappointed by NCC field trip

Lynette Johnson and Amber Calero express their disappointment in the NCC field trip

On April 29th, there was a Field trip for Freshmen and Juniors interested in becoming business owners. 

Freshman expected to learn something about how to run a business; how to get one started; and where to start. Or maybe even be convinced to go to NCC, but for some Freshmen, these things did not happen. 

Freshman were very vocal about their disappointment.

Kourtney Hughs, 9, expressed hers saying, “The field trip was unamusing. I really disliked it.”

Other freshmen expected the trip to be more interactive and less of a lecture. Kendall Runkel, 9, said, “I hoped it would be more interactive. I really only liked one section of the field trip.”

Myah Reyez:”I didn’t really like it, they kinda were just talking about nothing, not really as entertaining as I wanted to be.”

It wasn’t all bad as Leslie Gutierrez, 9, mentioned a positive about seeing parts of the campus, ”It felt like we were just listening to a lecture. At the end we did get to the industrial museum and that was fun.”

During the trip, there was a kahoot that students were invited to play, but the kahoot couldn’t support all the students who went. Cassie Goda, 9, says, “We expected to tour the campus but unfortunately that didn’t happen. The kahoot could only support up to 20 people and there were more than 20 of us.”

The response from the freshman class appears to be one of disappointment. Whether they were expecting a more hands-on experience or they thought it would be more about the campus itself, it appears most did not get what they wanted out of it. 

”I liked the food,” says Arianna Thomas, 9, “And talking with my friends and the museum but only because I was with my friends.”
