Review Essex County College
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've been attending Essex County College for a couple of years now and my experience so far has varied. First let me start with academics offered, there are a lot of different opportunities for an individual to participate in, and all fields have a dedicated advisor to help you along it's all informative and very helpful. The location of the college isn't bad as well, it's located about 5 minutes from the general downtown area so there's plenty of shops to browse. The only problem I've had with Essex County College is a problem related to safety. On multiple occasions I've had people approach me who didn't even attend the college and try to solicit something from me. I'm not saying security is terrible but it could be improved.
When I first entered Essex County College, I already had in my head that I would hate the school. After being there my first semester, I realized that it actually isn't such a bad school. Yes, the location may be a little scary for some people, but the people at the college are not. The professors are nice, and most of them even care about the students. You also save a lot of money going there instead of going straight to a University. I like how the college is run, and the academics there is very well. But, one thing I would change is the way some of the staff members interact with the students. Some of the staff members may be a little rude at times, but it doesn't hurt to crack a smile sometimes. Other than that, I would recommend ECC to a new college student who doesn't know what they are studying.
