Greetings - Friday, January 18, 2019
Welcome to the Spring 2020 Semester

The 2019-20 academic year is my 24th at NCC. Much has changed at the school, in my life and in the country since the Fall 1996 semester, but what remains the same is that I look forward to working with you this semester. You can find contact information for me via the "Contacting Me" link in the left-hand column of this page. You can also find the syllabus for you class via the "Documents" link (make sure you know the section for your course so you get the correct document).  Peace   Scott Ash
