East Central Community College Reviews
I love how East Central Community College feels like home! Many people don't want to leave home after graduating high school and planning to move on in life, but ECCC is different. The staff is willing to work with you, and if you live on campus like I do, you feel even more at home. You can sleep when you want (when you don't have a class of course), have three meals a day, and there are many campus activities and groups to participate in.
My experience at East Central Community College has been the best. The teachers always take time out of their day to give you extra help. The president always is open to your opinion and will change problems you find are wrong. They openly hear your concerns and will deal with them. This is the best school I have been to. If it was a four year school I would definitely stay until the end. Overall, East Central is the perfect community college option.
I really like how East Central Community College is only 30 minutes away from where I live because I can have the choice of either commuting or staying in a dorm. I also like the fact that this college is not too expensive, while at the same time offers a great education.
