Arianna - 01/17/2021

I believe that Mohawk Valley Community College has a lot of potential. The structure and environment in the school are almost friendly yet the campus life seems distant. I wish there was more interaction between the students and the teachers. The teachers seem to be lacking drive when it comes to teaching classes and a few of them are apathetic.

Mason - 04/16/2020

I’m currently enrolled in the Airframe and Powerplant maintenance program and it’s pretty tough, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. However it’s only a year long and it’s pretty rewarding, not too expensive, easy to communicate with all the professors and if you need help, it’s always there for you.

Michael - 04/16/2020

Mohawk Valley Community College is a great school with a couple of kinks. Teachers are not really flexible with our weather climate I'm always driving into a blizzard. Teachers aren't in the right place, teachers that deserve more than 101 classes aren't getting them. Teachers aren't as accepting of students working and going to school.

Rebecca - 04/04/2020

Mohawk Valley Community College is a small community where students really interact with each other and it is truly difficult to not make friends. Whether you are hanging out in the dorms or in the Alumni building, you will find that everyone accepts everyone here and there is an interest group for literally everything. If you don't find a group you would like to join, there is always the option to start your own as well.

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

    I would tell myself to learn to better manage my time. I would also tell myself to not ignore my online classes, and to do the discussion board questions. I didn't realize until it was too late how badly that would set me back. Lastly, I would tell myself to not be afraid to ask questions, because that is what the professors are hired to do. My first year, I was so shy and nervous that I did not ask many questions, and I feel like I would have had a much better experience if I had kept all this in mind.

  6. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I tell them that I am saving about 35 thousand dollars a year and will be just as eligible for the professional phase of the Doctor of Pharmacy program as someone attending a four year university or Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences ( the school i want to attend ). That really catches their attention and they certainly find out if they can do the same thing I am doing, with the program or major they want to persue.

  8. Describe the students at your school.

    Meeting different types of people in college was refreshing. There is such a huge change going from high school - with all its groups and ranks into college where everyone in your class is at the same level as you are. Some of the people you meet will influence you for the rest of your life. In a way it is terrifying but at the same time there is an adventure to be had in every new classroom! Life is like an empty book and high school was just a dark chapter but college is the chapter that changes your life.

    The best thing about my school are the starting programs and Transfer agreements it has with many colleges in NYS. Mvcc also allowed me to save money as well as get college experience with out being thrown out on my own at a university. The transfer agreements allow alot of flexibility to students currently attending the college. You have the added of comfort of knowing that if you keep up with the guidelines the university you want to attend sets in the transfer agreement, all your credits and most importantly you should be able to tranfer with no problem.
