I am an adult student

Jan 16 2014Communications
I am an adult student. First time attending college. The people (students/faculty) at this school were very accepting of me. As a Veteran, this is a Vet Friendly school. VA coordinator is top notch. Award winning CommArts professors. Dont come thinking youre in 13th Grade. Be an adult, you are responsible for you. Beware of the Cigarette Nazis. Good place to get your feet wet into college. Get your Associates or Certification and move onto a 4year college. Loved the people here, and I am anti-social.

I love Rockland Community College

I love Rockland Community College. As a returning student RCC gave me many opportunities to excel. The library staff, the tutoring center, the writing center, and the Science Center are extremely helpful. It is essential not to wait until the last minute, though. The financial aid office is very competent and friendly. RCC also offers many scholarships. The Math Department is the best. The professors are available, helpful and friendly. The Performing Arts Department is fabulous and professional.

RCC is a good place to start your

Feb 24 2012Education
RCC is a good place to start your college career. However it gets to the point where you don't even want to attend school anymore after the 1st year. Everyday is basically the same. It's like the movie Groundhog Day. There's noything to do around campus during your time off from class except to sit down someplace and do nothing. The food is okay but very pricey which is why half of the campus leaves at lunchtime to go home and eat or go to mcdonalds. Parking is a disaster if your not there early enough. if you get there at the wrong time expect to drive around looking for parking for at least 20 minutes or else your gonna have a long trek to class from the back parking lot. You make friends easily, everyone is nice and very helpful. Teachers are either very bad or very good. The psychology teachers are the best. I started off with a major in nursing. However, it was not what i expected. The teachers were okay but after a few weeks i knew it was not for me. Tests in both lecture and clinical are extremely difficult and you have to study 24/7. Another problem with the nursing program was the condition of the sim lab. The equipment and mannequins are ancient. They definately need an upgrade.As for the computer lab and library, they are very useful and you can always find someplace to si down. The student development center is filled with helpful teachers and counselors if you need help with anything or just want to talk to someone. All in all i can say RCC was a good school in the beginning but after my expirience with nursing program, i just want to get out and transfer asap.
