Naugatuck Valley Community College and the United Way of Greater Waterbury are sponsoring a series of free financial literacy workshops over the coming months. The series is held in cooperation with the Connecticut Association for Human Services. The times and topics of the workshops are as follows:
· Money Matters – Tips for budgets, spending wisely and making and saving money
Students in Naugatuck Valley Community College’s Horticulture Program have spent the last semester cultivating ornamental and edible crops that they’ll now sell from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., May 5-9 in the Technology Hall Greenhouse, 750 Chase Parkway. The spring bedding plants fill the greenhouse this time of year and are the outcome of sustainable production practices in the horticulture classes.
A new reverse transfer program will result in what academic officials hope is a pleasant surprise for some Charter Oak State College students over the holiday break. For the next several weeks, Charter Oak and Naugatuck Valley Community College staff will be reaching out to former students who have transferred 15 credits or more to Charter Oak, and earned at least 60 credits total, to offer an associate degree from NVCC ex post facto.
Naugatuck Valley Community College’s (NVCC) Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center is hosting two information sessions in October for interested students.
