The individual assistance from the school's entire staff was overwhelmingly welcoming. The Veteran's group at the school is very informative and willing to work with Veteran's disabilities. Engaging with the Veteran's, the staff and the students have been most pleasing. The school being small, gives the students an ability to interact with everyone on a personal level, allowing them to learn not only from professors but also each other. I personally enjoy the small town atmosphere and would not change anything. I thank God for all he makes possible and I thank you for this opportunity.
Review Somerset Community College
Classes are focused primarily online for flexibility of students schedules. However with this, a degree from this college is becoming less and less prestigious, because students have the ability to cheat throughout much of their curriculums and not learn anything. Because of this they choose to allow students to have the option to graduate without any experience with classmates or even know much about their career field because they could have googled their degree basically.
Half of the teachers I've had so far would do anything to help the advancement of students. If a student was having issues learning particular subject material, they were more than willing to restate it or work with the student(s). The other half seem to be there only during class time and never during their office hours, and are unwilling to help the student. One instructor in particular almost acts as if it's a bad thing for a student to ask a question during class, and often ignores hands. Later, students may email him those questions and get to response in return.
