Schuyler - 12/18/2021

I've really enjoyed going to college at ECC, it was definitely the right choice for me while I didnt know what I wanted to do. They offer a good variety of classes including some classes that I didn't even realize were offered until this year. The teachers are also always available for their students and usually open to working something out if extenuating circumstances occur. ECC is a really good school.

Claire - 03/23/2020

For a community college, I feel like it offers a great academic atmosphere. The professors and guidance counselors are available and very helpful. The buildings are a little bit old, but there are some updated ones as well and I feel like its the perfect place for a student to jump start their academic career. I would encourage anyone is interested in attending to definitely apply.

Catherine - 11/13/2019

East Central College is a community college in Union, MO. I came from a small high school and this college has definitely made the transition from being a high schooler to being a college student much easier. Even though it is a community college, their academics are up to par and they are nationally accredited in their music department as well as accredited in other academic fields. The professors are personable and understanding and engaging in lectures. While people may look down on me for going to a community college, I do not regret my choice of going here for my first two years of college.

Adam - 05/02/2016

A nice economical way to get a AA degree or credits to transfer to a larger 4 year school. They've recently added on since I left allowing more space for classrooms. The administration can be problematic at times and less then co-operative. Most of the teachers are knowledgeable and I still use a fair amount of what I learned on a regular basis.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    As I wake up, dreading to go to class, lugging my books and body into the car, off to school I go. This is how I felt many mornings on my way to High School, senior year I was just so ready to be done, only with college lurking around the corner though. "You know this is the easy part," and "you'll see one day," were some very common things I heard from my mom, and aunt, who was a teacher at my high school. Well I should have listened, I wish I could go back and tell myself, and make myself realize, everything that my elders had told me. Study hard, don't procrastinate, take your time, ask questions, and the list goes on and on.

  3. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The unique thing about the school I am currently attending is how helpfull they are. They understand that their community college is a stepping stone to a larger college. They really assist with tuition costs, advising with classes, and helping you get financial help and anything else needed from your next college. Next year I am transferring to the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, and that college is much more difficult getting help from. You become a small fish in the ocean.

  5. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish I would have known that preparing a financial plan is the most important part of college. Keeping up with school work is tought, but being able to pay for it is tougher. High school talks about the work you will be doing in college, some even tell you the student life to prepare for, but not many teachers mentally prep you for being financially stable. It costs a lot of money to pay for college, and then to live daily off money that you have. Pre-plan a financial plan, work, savings, etc..

  6. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The thing that I consider worse about my school is the overal spirit towards the school. It is more of a place for learning and that is it. There doesn't seem to be much pride for the school. Also when there are events around school people blow them off and don't even seem to care or even notice to them. This makes for a very boring campus life.
