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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

DCC is the sweet college on the hill. It's architectural buildings and endowments of sculpture amplify its artistic nature. Sweeping views of the Hudson Valley give students a vantage point to dream big. The faculty is comprised largely of actual industry professionals which enriches the students with exceptional understanding in their field of study. The college provides affordable tuition where students can make learned career decisions without breaking the bank and a multitude of academic departments like Architecture for example. Overall it's a great nurturing environment for anyone who wants to find a new path, career or a fresh start to their future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college has a strong faculty but not all of the professors that share the same department are on the same page. Two students would be taking the same course but would have different professors. One student would be getting an A and the other one was struggling to get a C. The professors definitely need to communicate more about how they choose to present the same material. It was always very easy to find drugs and alcohol simply because of the environment where the school was located. Poughkeepsie is a very poor inner-city and also there weren't many rules enforced at all. It was very easy to get into the residence hall and I was not a resident student. It was very easy to get in drugs or alcohol or anything that was not supposed to be on the campus because of the security. This also makes it worse simply because it was a dry campus and still is. They do not have the best security because it is a community college and student don't necessarily stay on campus except for the ones that live there. The college is in the process of becoming a 4-year school but it has a lot of work to do before it can reach that point.
