I’m currently enrolled at Ecc, it is my second year there. So far my experience at Ecc has been great, the atmosphere is calming and but busy in a way that there is just a lot of students. I’m working towards my Associates in Arts. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. Class sizes are roughly about 25 students which makes it easier to ask questions during lecture, the teachers are willing to work with you if you need the extra help. It’s also great to start off at a community college to save money!

This is my second semester at ECC. The campus appears to have been fully renovated. Building A is the healthcare professions building, and there are all-new labs and classrooms. I have been impressed with the quality of teaching among my instructors, and thus far all have seemed interested in seeing their students succeed. There are free tutoring centers if you need help with your classes. There's a variety of extracurricular activities too, if you are interested in those. ECC offers excellent value for the money.
I loved how I was able to start taking classes that specifically dealt with my major. The professors were always willing to help and cared about their students. Counseling and tutoring was always available. Since I am a science major there were many opportunities to engage in science fairs and special elective classes. ECC has an up to date campus and a beautiful library. If you wish to receive a social life, ECC is not the best college for that. To be social and make friends you really must join a club or some event that pushes you to engage with others.
