Essex County College Reviews
When I first began at Essex County College, I was not really thrilled being there. But as time went by I observed how very dedicated and willing the professors are. They are very resourceful and caring, and most if not all are very willing to see you succeed. Best of all these professors are very highly qualified with masters and doctorate degrees. Unlike some of these charter schools, with some leaders and most teachers struggling with a bachelor's degree and thinking to themselves they are the 'World's Greatest'. thanks to those wonderful professors at Essex! I owe my educational success to you!
I got into Essex county college straight from Nigeria and the school gave me my USA experience. I started with college mathematics and English and I can clearly say it was a big difference from my previous education in Africa. I was the shy type, so didn't get involved with any student life. I went from class to library back home. it was towards the end of my associate degree I became to let loose, but my 2 year college experience was coming to an end. security was only available inside the campus which I thought was not fair seeing that some students did take night classes. Food was not bad but it was the same thing everyday. Academics was superb. I loved my professors and loved my classes. Classroom was conducive, atlas I thought so seeing that wasn't the case from the type of classes I used back in Africa.
Even though it's my first year at Essex County College it is very diverse and when I say diverse it does not matter what your age is, the color of your skin or where you come form they have every type.My major is Human Services and all of my classes are so much fun to be in the professors interact with the students and always helping us to understand the topic.
