4 Students rated Herkimer County Community College

Emily - 05/01/2017

Honestly, Herkimer County Community College was one of the worst colleges I have been to in my academic career. Every one was rude and self centered thinking that they were better then everyone else. The teachers were condescending and rude and when you asked a question, they didn't;t give you a clear answer. You're up on a hill, granted it is very beautiful but you're isolated. I did not feel safe there at all. The housing was a joke. All they did was put you in with any other person. They didn't even look at your questionnaire. The facilities were okay.

Rachel - 12/30/2016

I find that Herkimer is excellent in that all the teachers and staff truly are there to help the students. They are all very personable and are always willing to go out of there way to help students. Being that it is a smaller campus, students are supported more personally.

Meysar - 12/29/2016

Because of its environment, I strongly agree Herkimer County Community College to being a school of focus. A surrounding where little to no distraction to be found. Also, fully supportive staff members. Helping the students such as myself excel in school and sports. Herkimer County Community College, in my opinion, is nowhere else I would be happy rather than here.

Kristina - 10/11/2016

I really learned a lot up at Herkimer. The big plus I had with the college is that there is plenty of parking. The campus is pretty spacious so there are plenty of things to do in your free time. There is also a mall pretty close by where you could go shopping. Teachers normally have regular office hours, and are available to talk via email/phone.

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

    I would tell myself to not slack off and actually get my butt in gear and try harder in high school. I didn't really try very hard in high school and I am regretting it now. I could have gotten in to Herkimer for free because of my grades. I was one person short of getting this award and I am kicking myself now for it. I would also tell myself to get involved more in the communities around my house. I was involved a bit through Boy Scouts but I was not involved enough in my life. Even though I was involved a lot I could have been involved more. I would have told myself that I would need to try harder because once I leave high school I will have to pay for the rest of my education for the rest of my life.

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

    students of the school are a mix of locals, Innercity kids, and Asian kids, I have never seen a more unique combination. They work together in classes and outside of classes tearing down social walls and forging bonds that will last a lifetime. You can walk into the cafeteria and see people that would have never talked to eachother in anyother situation having animated converstaions. The other schools that I looked at were in the same rural situations, but they were predominatly White, and the the small different ethinic groups stuck to eachother. There was no blending of the races.

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

    I think that people that don't take education seriously and people who feel that they should be at a "better" school shouldn't go to this school. I feel that even though they are at a community college they are getting a good education even though some people don't think that they are. People who think they are better than the rest and should be attending a private, big, well known college need to get there act together and take what they are allowed and run with it. If they are stuck up in this way, leave.

    I found the most frustrating thing to be a part of a classroom. So I chose to be an on line student. While I was in class there was a lot of talking and phone usage. It made it hard for me to concentrate.
