What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Dutchess Community College is it has great classroom sizes, professors are very accessible, and it's very affordable to attend. They also give students a lot of aid which helps cover others costs such as books or other applies needed. Being a community college, they have given me a great liberal arts/general studies education.

A good school. Love the opportunity and education given. More than a community college, the mixture of students and opportunities available is great. The school has given me the opportunity to effectively transition from high school to college and I am happy I decided to attend this school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

DCC definitely wasn’t my first choice. I had gotten into all 12 colleges I applied to, including prestigious colleges like Northeastern and Villanova. I then realized I could never afford these colleges, and that’s when I decided to enroll in DCC. I had gotten free tuition since I graduated in the top 10% of my high school class, which was a deal I really couldn’t pass up thanks to the Conklin Scholarship. After my 2 years at DCC, my view of the college changed dramatically. DCC isn’t “thirteenth grade”, as a lot of people at my high school would call it. I received a great education with amazing professors, some of which I am still in contact with. The classes set me up well for my 4 year college, as I am actually ahead of a lot of my peers. I made great friends and great connections. Even if I could have afforded a college like Villanova, I still would have gone to DCC for 2 years. I love DCC and I’m proud to see that my younger sister ended up transferring there after her first semester at another college. DCC is the way to go!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoyed my time at DCC, though my first year was not necessarily the best. There are some horrible professors, but there are many more extremely good professors that outweigh the bad. Additionally, I felt the school better itself every year I was there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is a great school if you are looking for something cheap or only want to take a class or two. The campus is a decent size and the campus has decent food and a Dunkin’ Donuts that was recently added which is convenient. The teachers are amazing and have great office hours, they are there for the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Dutchess Community College is an excellent two-year school. There is a variety of clubs and extracurricular activities that entice students of all backgrounds to join in. A second interesting fact about DCC is that the student population is so diverse that I end up meeting all different types of people everyday. A third positive is that a lot of the professors are extremely nice, accessible, and wanting to help, but there is always that select group of professors that are the exact opposite. I experienced this, but was able to get through the class with my advisor's help. Finally, the class size is so great because it creates a much more one-on-one feeling with a professor. I especially love this because I do so well in this type of environment. Overall, DCC is a good school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that this college is great for those who are looking to save money. If you are looking to pursue something like your associates degree in Nursing, then this is a great college to come to. In terms of social life/atmosphere, academics, food, etc, this school is rather mediocre...the classes aren't the most challenging. People tend to come to class and then leave right after, which makes sense since lots of people have jobs and families and kids. Like I stated earlier, come here if you want to save money!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dutchess is great for those who have no idea what to do with their lives, with low tuition it’s not a big commitment to bounce from major to major. However it’s in the city of PK where the night life gets boring. There is something for everyone on campus, with hundeds of clubs andactivities you’re sure to find something. The teachers are hot or miss many of them are very qualified for their jobs while some are not.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is alright overall. Most of the teachers in the Criminal Justice department are former or current police officers. This enables us to learn everything we need to know about the criminal justice system. The campus is very clean and is a smoke-free campus.
