I don't understand why anyone would start out at another college. FLCC is the perfect transitional school between high school and a four year college. The advisers are extremely helpful and personable, the professors genuinely care about your success and the academic standards are exceptional. The academic support options for students are abundant and available for just about every topic. The expectations the college holds you to are perfect to prepare you for transfer schools and the outside world. I feel very proud to have maintained a 3.8 GPA throughout my time here.

Scott

Highly recommend this college to students who are looking for a small school. This is one of the best community colleges in the area. You will not feel like a number as other colleges will. Most classes average 15 to 20 students allowing you to get to know the professors.

Brandy

Finger Lakes Community College is a vey welcoming and accessible campus. The housing is located near the main building which is handy and the professors are super nice and friendly. I felt very welcomed on campus. The students are very helpful and informative.

Steven

I have really enjoyed my time at FLCC. I have not taken full advantage of the help they offer. I could really use some after school help with some of my past classes. I intend on taking full advantage this upcoming year (2 semesters). The teachers are all helpful, the technology is up to date and easy to use. Taking quizzes and tests outside of class is not my favorite, as if you forget to set a timer for this quiz/test, then you get a zero. This happened to me one time only!! I am even considering taking extra semesters to receive my Bachelor's Degree. I have some friends that are in the process of doing that right now. The staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable. I always receive an answer to any question asked. Top notch SUNY college.

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

    I don't really think there is a bad thing about FLCC. I do get rather frustrated with their Financial Aid Office at main campus, but I avoid them by contacting the Financial Aid Office at one of the off-site campuses.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    Everything! The staff, students, programs, and extracirricular activites are all great and very helpful.

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

    I previously attended FLCC and acheived my original Associates' degree. I subsequently attained my BS in Health and PE. Since I originally graduated from FLCC in 1998/99, I have missed the warm, positive environment. I wish I had known of other colleges (4 yr schools) that are as inviting as FLCC.

    Determination, dedication, and strive are good characteristics of the type of people who should attend Finger Lakes Community College. Honestly, no matter what college someone chooses to attend they should have goals and work toward fulfilling those goals.

  8. Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

    FLCC is the only college I have attended. I have not been in school since 1975 and things have changed drasticly I am impressed with the newer technology which FLCC has available to students. All of the staff is very helpful with all issues and questions. The campus is very beautiful and modern located in a very nice medium sized city very convienent to Rochester and Geneva and other colleges.

  9. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    I believe the type of person who would not feel "at home" at FLCC is someone who loves a busy, fast-paced, highly populated place like a city. FLCC is not a big school (there are only about 7,000 students) and even though there are things to do around town, it is nothing compared to a large city. I feel that if someone who belonged in a city went to FLCC, they might get bored easily.

  10. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my college is the difficulty of finding a parking spot. Oftentimes if you do not find one in the front parking lot you have to park way out of the way and walk ten minutes to get to class. This is also frustrating because if you do not get there ten minutes ahead of time you may be late to class.
