The teachers were great
The teachers were great there, and several classes seemed better than the basic courses at the four year state school I went to later. Most of the classes transferred and I was able to attend two years here and save my funds for my graduate degree later on.

Question
While attending ECC(after highschool) I found my generalQuite BrightComputer Science
While attending ECC(after highschool) I found my general ed classes to be very simulating and well worth the time and money for the education. However my classes relating to my major(computer networking, and except Cisco Networking Classes) where really easy and a waist of time and money(I knew more than the instructors most of the time). Many of my major related classes where only offered at night, however this turned out to be the best for me as I could put all my classes into a schedule of two days a week.(Tue,Thurs) and no classes before 12noon(I hate mornings).

My plan from the beginning was to go to ECC for 2yrs and then transfer to a bigger school for the bachelor degree. I am glad that I went to ECC first rather than a four year school because of the money saved. (Living at home with the parents, lower cost of tuition.)

I feel like I missed out on the "collage experience" and I don't mean the parties, but rather the clubs, sports and other such related social events that do not exists on a real collage campus.

I am disappointed in the level of customer service at this school. I was expecting to receive 14 credits from an articulation agreement with my high school and ecc, however ECC only gave me 8 of those 14, due a change in administration. I was told my only option is to retake the classes I had already had in high school. This dission was based on the fact that if I retake the classes the school makes more money.

While parking is free, you can not park close to the school unless your are on the staff or you will be towed away. The parking situation is the worst on the first day of school but gets a little better after the first few weeks.Even though this school has a lower tuition rate than the 4 year schools the money paid is not money well spent. The dean gets paid more than any other dean in the state. The teachers are often part time teachers and are paid alot less than they should. The program areas are not given enough money to stay current and students are forced to pay extra for programs that let teachers grade students homework(MathXL).

Question
ECC is a nice school, if you goAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
ECC is a nice school, if you go during the day. However, as a night student, I pay the same tuition rates as a normal student, but receive none of the benefits. Most teachers are nice, but the assignments are not relevant to the workplace probably 95% of the time. The advising dept. is not quite up to par also, my first two advisors had not a clue, one putting me in two classes that I had no need of.
