I am happy to be here, it's an awesome experience, I've learned here how to keep going, don't mind how big is the storm around. This school encourage and support everyone to never give up, as part of the college I feel running a marathon not a short race, the life, the career, the knowledge, the teaching and apprentice are always the way to go.
Essex County College is a place like home. It has a tight-knit community that makes it feel safe and secure. The Professors are always available and ready to push you towards your goals. They constantly inform us of other opportunities we can partake in to become better individuals. From Essex County College, I enjoyed my most first's. I had my first job through the Work-Study Program. I made a new set of friends, I partake in my first Volunteer experience, and soon I will be partaking in my first Research Program. Essex County College is home!
Essex County does it's job and nothing more, though I will say most of the teachers I have had actually do care about their students and will try and help them figure out what to do once their two years are up. I will say that is where Essex shines the most, it's teachers. Every teacher I've had at this school has made due with what they had to teach to their fullest potential, I never felt like just a paycheck to them. The campus also has loads of opportunities for scholarships and other grants, though the college is given a bad reputation and sometimes deserves it, Essex will do everything in it's power to help you graduate and that really is the first thing you should want from your college.
I have gone to Montclair State University and Union County College. Both schools are great however I love going to Essex County College. The teachers actually care. The work is not too difficult (believe me I am a pre med major). Also it doesn't cost a lot to go here. If I could have just went here in the beginning I would have.

i wiould tell my high school self to listen, and to think before i act.
My classmates are very diverse in culture, age, and socioeconomic background, therefore offering a variety of viewpoints on all topics in all subject areas.
my school is suffecent.
i wished i know before i came to the school was how helpful some of the proffesors are and that they are to are humans and understand when you are going through something. also i wished i would have known about all the programs there are out there to help us get the education we desire. thats only if you wanted and go looking for it you will find it.
There are too many professor that I like. Honestly being a Gen. Sci major I have taken quite a few classes. More Science classes, but I must say that I enjoyed Survey of African History, Art, and Medical Terminology, maybe because I really got to speak my mind and did not get a no no for giving my own opinions about something. Students are competitive when it comes to taking a certain class, a lot of us are all worry about the infamous GPA, we tell each other from time to time, don't take this professor. But sometimes each experience is different, my Academic advisor is cool, he is also a professor and a Dr in the Education, he teach Biology so he understand my struggles. Some of the classes aren't geared towards jobs, it makes you wonder why do I need Calculus if I want to become a doctor. Again it depends on who you hang with, each conversation will be intellectually different.
ECC is a very good school with good professors, excellent professors, bad professors, and the professors who need to retire. My overall opinion about the school is that it has treated me fairly well, because I have come across some difficult professor but I always study hard and not quit. People will disagree with me, but each individual has there own experiences. The best thing is there welcome back feast, that are held outside, you get to meet new people and learn about different clubs at that. Another good thing is the tools that are at your fingertips, because you either use them or not.. The school is located in the heart of a major city, You can not only study in that library, but NJIT, Rutgers, and even Seton Hall. This is a good school who cares for the students, The most frequent complaints are Financial Aid and the overpriced food that isn't much of a selectivity. They are always having educational forums, concerts, fashion shows. A cool new thing is that we now have Greek life on campus as well.
The worst thing about my school is that there are alot of foreign professors with very heavy accents.
A person who is ready to encounter and conquer what they need to at Essex County College to become what they wanna become.
Honestly I can't really think of the kind of student that wouldn't strive at Essex County College, un less you are a student who aren't going to apply yourself to your studies. If your recieving financial aid or is paying for school out-of pocket and you're not applying yourself, that just shows that you are a student who is undeserving of going anywhere for that matter because you're not taking your education seriously. And is depriving yourself of who you can become to the upmost.
We have a Wise Women's center, that is a valuable resource with open opportunities.
Our school has a population equivalent to a 4 year school, No one knows everybody in that school. Because there maybe people who have been there for the whole 2 or 3 years, and your just now meeting them for the first time.
I like to share with others the many opportunities that the school provides. Especially one that is very personal to me. Essex County College has an amazing Nursing program. There is an LPN and an RN program and after graduating you can work in your field of choice. I'm also proud of the extracurricular activities such as clubs. Once you join one club it's as if you are a member of all the clubs because of the support that they show to each other.
Are very hard? Pharmacology is a lot of reading and takes time from what you want to do. I recommend that class for future Doctors, Nurses, PA, Pharmacist, so that when you do go to that next level it won't be all that overwhelming. My other class are hard to but I have found ways to spread out the craziness and achieve what needs to be achieved, Everything takes work, and nothing comes easy, its just how you make it for yourself,. Chemistry need constant understanding. Also my CIS class is awesome and is really easy, especially if you pay attention and is always at a computer.
What I consider the best thing about my school I considered is the diversity of the college. I was raised in Newark all my life which is diverse in its own and I am comfortable around different ethnicities. This is pivotal because I yearn to have an enticing career in America as a business man and will be working with people of many backgrounds. Diversity range from the students to the professors and the lunch workers in the cafeteria.
I personally haven't come across any students who posses that attribute, I think it comes from the students who truly do not want to do the work. I also believe is its who you associate yourself with, because the people that hang around me vice versa are very intelligent and are serious about there studies. So that stereotype is false.
there is many students in the newark campus and parking around is difficult.
