What is your overall opinion of this school?

Passaic County Community College is a simply a good school. Many professors are helpful, informative, and accessible, yet many others are not. The Paterson, New Jersey Campus unfortunately is surrounded by many homeless and I have encountered tons of panhandlers, but that is the city, not the school. The school is beautiful with a few inspiring works of art. The clubs are not very active and there are not many. As far as drugs, there are many students who discuss drug-related manners which I have overheard many times at the Paterson Campus. Overall, it is a fine school. Security is good, the parking garage is terrible, many wonderful professors, not enough computers in the library, some of the staff are unfriendly, and the location is rather inconvenience with Paterson city traffic.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Passaic County Community College is a very good school in general. Some of the teachers are great and most offer help outside of the classroom. PCCC offers many opportunities. They have many clubs and they have tutoring for students. One thing they could improve is sending out notifications of things going on with the school and their opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A lot of great professors who are always willing to help. A lot of opportunities. Very affordable. Relatively safe, not as dangerous as many people say. Most people who say it's dangerous are afraid of poor people or think it's a good idea to hang out on the streets at night. During the day, it's very safe. If you're worried, the entire campus is connected by a bridge so you never have to be outside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pretty good overall, Not too much movement but the learning experience is good. Professors are always helpful and cooperating. The infrastructure is on point, not too big but space is enough for the number of students. The cafeteria is the only thing I would say needs quite the upgrade. We share the cafeteria with a high school from the area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Passaic County Community College (Pccc) is a perfect college match for a student like me who cannot afford universities because it is close to home, it is affordable, and the class sizes are terrific. I commute with a bus everyday going to school and it is fantastic because it only take less than an hour for me to get to my college. I do not own a car because I cannot afford it yet, so for the meantime, riding the bus to college is fortunate for me. I do loans because I am not eligible for financial aid. Pccc made it possible for me to attend college without spending tons of money for tuition for every semester. I like how the sizes of classes are in Pccc because it is easier to have conversations with the professors. For instance, if there are more than thirty students in a class, it is very hard to asks questions about a specific discussion because there might be ten students who have different questions. On the other hand, a class with fifteen students is more interactive because the students can ask as many questions as they want about the lecture without running out of class time. A two year college like Pccc is a very good start for a student like me who wants to save money and at the same time, understanding every topics without being left out. Furthermore, I am grateful for Pccc because this college is such a big help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if Passaic County Community College could be improved in any ways. First, it would be great to keep the library open 24/7. Second, I believe the food could be improved as well. Lastly, I must include that the prices to buy book supplies are a rip off, there are stores with better prices out there!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I started at Passaic County Community College (PCCC), I was nervous and lost. The four star rating is accredited to the intelligent, dedicated, and compassionate professors working at this academic institution. Semester after semester, I was fortunate to have professors who worked above and beyond their call to guide their students and support the school. Their efforts made me confident in my academics and my capability to take on challenges. Through recommendations, I pursued membership in clubs (Human Services Club) and academic societies (Phi Theta Kappa). I feel fortunate to have these devoted professors as part of my academic path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love coming to this school. It is a great learning institute, the professors are very helpful and there are always people who are always asking if you need help. The professors always make time for their students, whether they need help in their academics or personal life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is an abundant amount of opportunity here on campus. One of my counselors always has something new to inform me about every time I step into his office. This sense of encouragement, empowers me to continue to practice excellence. It eliminates the fear of not getting the result I want, as I know the community here on campus will act as a spring board to help propel in the right direction. I will be spending two years here to receive my associates degree, and I can honestly say I am excited for everything down the road.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to my senior self i would tell Senior me that I am proud of myself for deciding to go to community college. I would tell myself not to worry about or think about how everyone else was going to some fancy schools while I went to the community college nearby.I would tell myself to not let myself be brought down by the bullies in my grade because I won't ever see them again. I would tell myself that although the entance process for EOF required a lot it would all be worth it. Yes, I would have to give up my Senior summer to take an English class and a workshop for EOF, but it would all be free including the food so I should be greatful. I would tell myself to not feel sad or nervous about going to a different campus from my best friend since third grade because I would make new very great friends. Some of which I would meet in very peculiar situations so I should not fret because things happen for a reason. Lastly, I would say just be yourself.

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

I wish I had learn to organize myself better. Know that I could do better in my life that way I feel I would be doing better in my classes.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is willing to prove people wrong about how poverty, discrimination, and under oppressing factors do not only shape a person, but inspire them.
