Marci - 07/30/2022

Monroe is a good school especially if you want to complete school in a faster time. Monroe provides services in many areas such as financial, academics, and personal services as well. I loved the school of education the most because they made sure the students were their priority.

Mariam - 01/10/2018

Monroe errs on the “vocational school” spectrum. Essentially, it’s the type of institution for those who want a second shot at college (think academically dismissed and the kids who barely passed high school). The academic facilities are subpar at best, and the teaching quality mirrors that of a common core curriculum. It’s a private institution so the tuition price is legalized theft. Transferring in is easy enough, but transferring out is a hassle. The campus culture mirrors its south Bronx surroundings so keep that in mind. A positive however, is the school’s dedication to your getting the most out of being there. I’m talking internships, job fairs, the whole shebang (don’t expect to land a Times job but you get the gist). All in all, is it a “good” school? Depends on what you’re looking for really. It’s nothing to tout on about but it can be a stepping stone to better access to a successful future. Granted you’re on top of things.

I LOVE Monroe College The support system in all areas is wonderful. Students and staff both care about the success of all their students. .Even the ones who have disabilities

Samaria - 05/24/2017

Before finding my way to Monroe College I have visited CUNY, SUNY, and other private colleges that just did not make me feel excited to learn. But once i came to Monroe they made me feel at home. They cared about what I wanted in life and walked me through the process of enrollment. At the New student orientation President Jerome told us that COLLEGE IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOURSELF! If you believe you can do it and you invest your time in learning, invest in projects and assignments, invest in getting great grades than you would never have to worry about failing. Monroe staff helps you when you need it, they have your back when you feel like you can not do it and they push you to finish what you started. They are flexible with class scheduling and the professors teach you so you understand. Me personally I invested in myself after taking 3 years off from High school and now I plan on going for my masters. And I am in my third semester of my associates with a 3.9 GPA and I could not be anymore happier.

I doubt anyone will feel out of place in such a diverse college environment. Students attend classes dressed casually and relaxed. The college welcomes all financial backgrounds, it is quite difficult to tell the financial background that is most prevalent within the school.

  4. What are the academics like at your school?

    The academics at Monroe College are challenging. The classes are moderate sized and each tutor outlines the course syllabus requirements sufficiently to allow the student to gain core understanding of what is expected as a student. Class participation is a common characteristic of each class. Students are expected to show their skills and knowledge development. Students are quite competitive and focused on education. My favorite class this semester is IT100. This course lays a firm foundation for my BSC Information Technology degree. I spend little time with professors outside the classroom, however, I plan to spend more time with them as the semester progresses
