Mercer County Community College Reviews

My experience at Mercer County Community College was great. One of my favorite aspects of Mercer is the extremely diverse student body that drives the creative side of the college. People from all walks of life--young, old, European, Asian, Middle Eastern, etc--attend this college. This melting pot of cultures builds cultural awareness among students, and discourages cultural relativism.

Moreover, I particularly appreciate the willingness, of all the professors I have had at Mercer, to meet with students to address concerns, pose questions, and provide guidance on a variety of matters. This aspect of Mercer is fantastic since students and faculty can build bonds and in turn promote mutual learning.

As well as, Mercer's administration encourages student participation in on- and off-campus activities. I myself took advantage of the many avenues students can take to become involved in campus activities--I founded a political action club.
Review Mercer County Community College
Some community colleges may not be as bad but at MCCC, many professors I had there did not care about furthering their students in their career choice. I had one or two very good professors that sincerely cared about their students and answered any questions necessary; but most professors did not explain the 'why' and the 'how' with the complicated animating program and game engine we were using. A lot of the time we were just hit with "look it up on Google" ... seriously? Why am I paying to be here then? Also, most students there were very immature and practically silent. I would find almost everyone in most classes I had there would not participate in class or even respond to me. Very odd school.
There are a lot of programs for different interest. there are two campuses. Free wifi. Modern lab and up to date classrooms. Professors vary on weather they use all amenities but most teachers have something to recommend them - real life experience or superior teaching style. The phone system is antiquated and it is difficult to do any financial aid or enrollment business by phone or email. You must physically go down to the school. Also the advisement system is a crap shoot. You can be assigned or not assigned and more than likely you will get conflicting information. It pays to ask every question 3 times, just to be sure.
