A typical student at eacc is going to class, take part in class discussion, and social. My college is fairly diverse but acceptance here is bit challenging because most of our two top race will not mix with each other except me and few others. We do have Christian club where a lot of different organization comes together to worship Jesus Christ. Pretty much everybody here middle class or just bless.. I accept everyone regardless of their background!
Review East Arkansas Community College
The athletic center needs improvement but overall it is manageable and easy to access since they have set new hours for everybody to come for anything. The student center is okay but can do more activities for the whole campus. The Library here at eacc is the best ! It has different books and resources to help out with the workload or any career interest. Yet again, We rarely have campus activities and we most hang out in the gym or student center. The campus is pretty quiet and welcoming!
The majority of the professors at my school are helpful and doesn't mind re-explaining something I don't understand. The curriculum is challenging and it makes me pounder on what I have learn from my classes this semester. The Class registration process was okay. I had to wait about an hour to see my advisor then an additional thirty minutes. Plus I couldn't pick my classes, they chooses my classes for me which was a big mistake! My school has what is called SSS, which stands for " Student Support Service" which provides free tutors, School related workshops and trips to different college tours.
