Throughout the six semesters I spent at Passaic County Community College, I had a great experience and would definitely go back to take classes if I ever needed to. Students and professors alike were both very understanding and always willing to lend a helping hand. I did have quite a few issues with the registrar's office and financial aid department, but the positive experience I had greatly outweighs the negative. I am thankful for all of the friends I made there and would definitely recommend that any student to go there!

Due to the coronavirus, most of classes were online and for the most part, the experience wasn't as bad as I thought. It was challenging at first but things started to get better. The professors were very understanding due to these bad and unexpected times. However, besides that everything started to become a bit normal as if we were still in a classroom. I did take a online music class my first semester and that was really fun. One assignment I enjoyed from that class was going to an actual orchestra performance and then writing about it. I never been to performance like that before and it was quite the experience.
As a incoming Sophomore, I would like to say I really enjoyed my first year at Passaic County Community College. I've met many different people and they were very kind and helpful. I've established many good connections with everyone in this school. Overall, it is a good place for anyone who is willing to learn and experience what it is like to be in a college environment. The professors are always there when you ask for help and are very understanding when it comes to assignments, exams, etc.
