What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great place to graduate fast and get right to work. The small class sizes really help you get one on one time with the professors and they're almost always available. Both the New Rochelle and Bronx campuses are great but you might get lost the first day of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Monroe College is a good school to attend. The professors generally cares about the student and try their best to help the students pass. Professors also help students who are not theirs. Tutoring is always available as well as other facilities. The school is just very costly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Monroe, they work with your schedule as much as possible and want to see you succeed more than you do. The professors are always accessible for questions and even willing to text or have phone conversations to give us students better and much needed clarification.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

Common stereotypes at the school may consist of differences with International students such as Caribbean students different cultural backgrounds.However, the school does a great job at exposing all students to different cultural activities and events.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Some popular groups/clubs on Monroe College campus are Writers Block Club and Information Technology Student Association. I am not yet actively involved in either clubs, however, I am exploring joining both clubs in the near future. The dating scene at the college is geared toward the younger students, mostly late teens to mid twenty year olds. Since, attending college I have not partied much. However, attending social events and gatherings have been the norm. On Saturday nights I spend time studying and prepping for the week ahead.

Describe the students at your school.

Students of all racial backgrounds, religions and socio-economic background attend Monroe College. There is no racial divide, all students are equally given the opportunity to excel and gain from the Monroe College environment. There are so many students with varying backgrounds. 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.

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
