What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great place to find your career path; it's very affordable and hassle free. Everyone, from professors to the financial aid office, is there to make sure you find the best options for you. The small class sizes allow for more hands on learning and deeper discussions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a solid institution. Friendly individuals who aren't afraid to accept others into their groups. The professors vary but most get the job done. The administration is quite active in communicating with the students. Student life can improve a bit. Overall, with scenery and the vibes of both campus, as well as everything I stated above, MCC gets an A-

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about MCC is that it's actually a great place to start based off of my experience with my professors. People say that college is different from high school because the teachers don't care but I haven't had that with my professors at all. Every professor that I've had I've made a connection with. They know my name, help me outside of the classroom, and are just great people in general. I still talk to the professors that I don't have classes with anymore. That's the best thing I would say that comes out of going here. I will say that the school environment is a bit dull but then that's where your personal challenge comes in. That's where you have to make it what you want. There are clubs but they're quite silent unless you go out and find them to try and participate. Events do happen but I think that they aren't advertised correctly to have people really involved. The food is ok but the selection doesn't change, it's literally the same thing everyday which is just boring and expensive.

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

The advice I would give myself if I were to go back in time would be to take school more seriously. I would tell myself to stick with it and still give it my all even for my senior year. I would also tell myself to try and take a few AP classes so that I could start at higher level classes in college to save time and money.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Some one who wants to save some money and be able to work or live at home should attend Mcc.

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

The advice I would give to mtself would be to never give up. I have always wanted to be a Nurse. It is my passion and when I see Seniors from High School who just enver put forth the effort to go to School and make a difference. Knowing what I know now about College life and making the transiton, the good advice would be stay in school and graduate. The way the ecomony is today and the job market. You will need a College Degree and more. So, to all the High School Student out there, be somebody, amke a diffefrence, make your parents proud, and not onlt that make yourself proud. The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think one person might not want to sign up to attend this College is a person that is not sure of his or her self. It is important to want to go to College and be successful. It is important to make it happen, if fnot then wht bother.

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

I brag most about the professors. They are fantastic. I'm proud be hear great things from other people that have attend Monroe Community College and can give thoughts and opinions about their experience there.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates were very diverse and friendly. Most classmates communicated with each other, especially if someone had a question or was having troubles with a particular course. Some of my classmates approached me for help and I would approach otheres when I needed help.

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

Ariel, Take it easy. You think you want to be a doctor but life choices and experiences will lead you where you are suppose to be. I know you are beating yourself up for denying that small scholarship to University of Rochester, but don't. You only applied to Monroe Community College and maybe you should have applied to more colleges to broaden your options, but Monroe Community College is good for you. You love to help people and you will do just that at MCC. You will find yourself above the average college student there academically but that's okay. This will give you the chance to help people with their grades and meet new friends. You may want more challenging classes but MCC will provide you with the basics that you think you already know but you really don't. Don't put MCC below you because it is honestly over your financial standings; don't put anything below you. You need to work your way up and you will do exactly that. You will be able to work and go to school and save money. Don't take a single day or class for granted. Always smile.

What's unique about your campus?

Monroe Community College was an easy transition from High School to College but is an extremely well known Community College around the nation. You receive the education you need for a fraction of the price and class sizes as a university.

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

My school has the most amazing dorms, which were built within the past 10 years. The dorms are huge and they give you an amzing experience to meet new people through all of the activities and events. Mnroe Community college also has great professors, for a much lower price. My professors and advisors have helped me so much already to figure out what path I want to take in order to acheieve my career and further schooling goals.

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

If I could go back in time to my senior year of high school, I would tell myself to work harder on applying for scholarships. I am extremely happy with my choice to go to community college, but if i had scholarships for it, my pursuit to go to a University in the future would have been much less expensive. Scholarships are an extremely important part of college that you ignore as a senior because you are excited about starting a new life and having freedom. I recently went to my high school and told this advice to current seniors so that they can keep in mind how important it is to research ways to pay for college.

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

I wish that I knew how many people lived so close. Obviously, since it is a community college, people live close, however, it is tricky on weekends and breaks when people go home and I cannot. I live in New Hampshire, therefore, going home is not possible for me on weekends. I wish I had thought about this ahead of time, but luckily I have extended family close-by that I stay with and work for when my friends go home.

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

Huh this is difficult. I would say rude people. Its sort of accurate as i said earilar it seems like people don't have any manners.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

This is tricky as i am not really in acadmeic clubs. I can tell video gaming is popular. I see alot of people in the video game lounge. But also Anime club is fairly popular. Not in that one any more but yeah i am impressed how popular it is.

What are the academics like at your school?

So so. Some professors are jerks. But most of the ones i have had are really nice and helpful. They have alot of neat classes. Some that might even have opportunities to go abroad.
