At East Central Community College I developed some of the best relationships with fellow East Central Falcons and several professors. Yes, it is a community college and it isn't the typical "college" experience, but I would say it is better. I fully recommend saving money and going to East Central because I personally enjoyed every second I had on campus.

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.
East Central Community College is an amazing college. It is a great environment to be in whenever one is on the campus. It has such a diverse crowd, even though it is small. The tuition at East Central Community College is very affordable and they pay YOU to attend this college. Everyone on campus is respectable and extremely nice.
