Monroe College - Bronx Reviews

My first semester there no one told me I needed field work or to work in schools on the first week. I was absent 3 times in one class because I had gotten sick to the point I lost my voice and was spitting up blood. I had the stomach flu for a month and managed to make it to school.My professor told me to only be absent for "serious" things. I live in Yonkers and their campuses are both in the Bronx and New Rochelle. I have no problem with that but they placed me in BOTH at the same time in the Autumn semester of 2015. Mind you I was still 16 at the time I graduated high school early and they expected me to understand every little thing. I wasn't expecting anything handed to me of course, so I obviously asked questions.When I asked my financial advisor what a book voucher was he laughed in my face because of my lack of knowledge and DIDN'T GIVE ME ONE. I had no books for 3 weeks because of that. My mother HAD to come into the school where THEY TREATED HER AWFULLY in the New Rochelle campus. It does not feel very homey there and professors pick and choose favourites. The most I've had was 30+ to a classroom but they're typically ~15 or less students per class.

The professor mentioned from before had also LIED that I did NOT attend any of my field work assignments and that I did NOT hand in any work at all. I had an A+ and she tried to fail me but I fought and got it to a B+. She talks to you like a child and I strongly believe she has lack of experience [she is a young professor]. Don't get me wrong I had another young professor AND she was pregnant and NEVER did anything like this one who was lying. I brought it up to my dean and she just acted like it was nothing. My dean acted like I was tired and exhausted for no reason until she realised I was commuting to BOTH campuses and mind you I'm a full time student. She said "oh no these classes are available in the Bronx campus all of them! Why didn't you ask to fix your schedule?!"

I did, I went to 3 ppl ._.
Monroe College provides a great opportunity for students to graduate early. They offer 3 semesters to finish your Associates and Bachelors in under 3 years. They have a great academic center where students can go for help on a particular subjects, tests, and papers. The sporting facilities provide great accommodations for the students involved. Monroe also provides opportunities for international students. The increased diversity at the school enables everyone to interact hence create understanding of different cultures for everyone. The President of the school, Marc Jerome, is an approachable man who cares for all his students and will do his best to assist students with any needs or concerns they have. The students to teacher ratio is complements each others and allows the teacher to be more interactive with their students. Teachers do care about the students. They have flexible office hours for students in case they need extra help on a particular subject.
Monroe College has great academics and wonderful professors that are willing to take the extra time out to help you in whatever you need. All of the classes usually have 20-30 students, which makes it easier to understand the material and really get to know your professor. If you need extra help in any class, there is also an Academic Center that is always filled with tutors that are more than willing to help you. There are also many academic clubs and student-run organizations that anyone can join. Monroe College always has many fun student activities happening all over campus that everyone there is bound to find something that they like to do. Overall, Monroe is a great school.
