- The New England School of Communications began as the New England School of Broadcasting in 1981, to train students for positions in the broadcasting and allied fields. From a downtown location NESB purchased the "Broadcast House" in 1983, and an up-to-date facility was built. The move proved to be temporary as the School grew rapidly. In 1985, NESB moved to a facility on the campus of Husson College and continued to grow by providing housing, dining, a gymnasium and other campus amenities. In 1997, NESCom merged with Husson College and became a wholly owned subsidiary. In 2001, a new Communication Center was established for the school with a new wing added in 2004. The 140 acre campus at Husson College is an attractive setting for the NESCOM program. NESCom offers the personal attention of a small college with all of the conveniences and resources of a much larger campus. Located in the George Wildey Communication Center on a wooded hillside, NESCom is only a short walk from restaurants and shopping. Within our convenient, well designed campus, amenities include three residence halls, dining commons, library, health services, gymnasium with health and fitness center and Olympic size swimming pool, chapel, bookstore, art gallery and campus center all wired with a fully integrated computer network system. The New England School of Communications offers students both the Associate of Science and the Bachelor of Science Degree program in Communications. With concentrations in Advertising and Public Relations, Audio Engineering, Broadcast Journalism, Digital Media, Radio, Sports Broadcasting and Television. A hands-on, technical oriented approach to education provides students with the opportunity to become proficient in the latest in digital technology and to develop the professional skills required in the exciting, fascinating and ever changing media industry.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
