I am VERY disappointed with MVCC.BrightNursing
I am VERY disappointed with MVCC. Thee are far better colleges in the Utica area and many are just as affordable. There are professors who are absolutely wonderful but there are a few who ruin it for everyone else. I suggest taking Boces' program for medical assistant since MVCC has lost Sue Bice. She was a terrific professor who truly cared for her students. The individual who replaced her, Jamie cuda, is worthless and incompetent. The director of the department, Nancy Caputo should be fired, she is the epitome of incompetent. MVCC will I expect suin lose its accreditation with AHIMA (if it hasn't already) and is under investigation for seriously high drop out rates and low graduation rates with nursing and allied health programs on a state level. If considering nursing as a future try SUNYIT or St Elizabeth's. AVOID MVCC you WILL regret going there.

Boring atmosphere.Quite BrightPsychology
Boring atmosphere. Teachers care about you knowing the facts, not applying them within the field. Looking back, if it was not for the easy transfer program into a school I really want to go to, I would have looked elsewhere.

This college is great for a community college.Quite BrightUndecided
This college is great for a community college. It's better then my previous college, Herkimer CCC. One difference is at MV they treat you like an adult, Unlike at HCCC, where they treat you like a high school student. The Parking does suck at the begining of the year at the Utica Campus only. Campus Cops are alright, except for parking violations. They have two campuses, Rome/Utica. The Rome campus is smaller and doesnt have much. I highly recomend the utica campus more. Utica is not that bad. It is not a small Hick Town, But then again it's not a big city like Buffalo or NYC. Most of the teachers are alright. IF YOU NEED TO TAKE A SCIENCE CLASS, ***DO NOT*** SIGN UP FOR ANY OF MR. LATUCCA'S CLASSES. Most of the class failed. I have been accepted at many 4 year schools and I was tempted to take an extra semester at MV, because I liked the school so much.
