The State University of New York Westchester Community College - Comments and Student Experiences|
There are quite a few adjuncts, which are just as challenging as the professors, but it is up to you to choose your classes. They also have the honors classes, through Phi Theta Kappa if you you require that extra challenge to avoid boredom.
The students are very nice and many sit within groups, so it is up to you to make friends. Either you are a social butterfly or you are not. It falls on you. They have many clubs, usually on Wednesdays and everyone is asked to join. They also have many activities, shows and even lectures if that is what you want. However, once again it is up to you to make yourself known.
The one thing that stands out in this beautiful campus, is the help provided to disabled scholars. There are quite a large number of disabled scholars and they have a support center for them that provides tutoring, as well as other services. There is also a food pantry for those in need. Overall. I believe that this college is what you make of it and it is up to you to provide the challenges you need, make friends, and learn tolerance of others.
I have been at the college almost three full months and have met approximately 1 person who is not a druggie and a drunk and my only friend happens to be both. I have severely lowered my standards of proper companionship in order to make friends here. Essentially, every time I step foot on campus, I become depressed and shut down. As an empath, I know that I am not the only person who feels this way. A lot of kids walk around as I do- alone and distraught with no intention to open up. And it isn't only because they're drunks and druggies looking for their next fix, it's because they don't want to be there and are only there due to financial reasons. I have only been here about 3 months and I am already looking to transfer out....and looking desperately. The only reason I am here is because I graduated early and my parents don't want me to go away. This is a plea; if you are looking to enter this college, DON'T. If you are in this college, GET OUT ASAP.
