NORWALK - Norwalk Community College's student body has grown so much in a year it's forced the school to close some classes.

Enrollment at the school by is up 18 percent since last fall. More than 1,000 new students registered for classes that will begin Monday.

"I think it's a great testament to the fact that we really have a great staff here, people know what they're doing," says sophomore Ryan Pappolia.
