I loved being a student there. The cafeteria was nice, the grounds were clean, and the lounges were usually well-kept. I loved that all of the clubs met during the lunch break time, which made it easy to join a club and make more friends! I wish that the school would not retain teachers simply because they have tenure. I remember having one teacher who did not teach us anything all semester. He would review the book the day before the test but would not actually teach the class. I would have liked to see a more professional person teach the class, since people are paying to be there and learn. I also found the required class Social and Cultural problems to be pointless, since it does not particularly help you towards other majors when you transfer schools. It only counts for miscellaneous credits. I loved being part of the Outdoor Adventure Club. I would highly recommend joining this club. If being outdoors is not something that you enjoy, there are plenty of other clubs to join.
Review SUNY Dutchess Community College
I've had a very rough start in my college semester but slowly I am adjusting to the college life. The professors and student administration are so helpful. The professors are always, definitely, and positively available to help, after classroom hours and other times. THE CENTERS ARE AMAZING! This college is so dedicated in helping students graduate and transfer. I only give this 3 stars because of how poorly I did my first semester because I didn't take advantage of all the help.
Being an engineering student is tough, but well worth it! Though it's quite a bit to keep up with the workload, the school makes sure you learn. There's a lot of assignments, but if you start to get stuck, you can always go to the math center and double check any questions that you may have a problem understanding. The only thing I had an issue with was group projects, since you usually are randomly paired up with others- but this too can be seen as a way to develop people skills. Overall, if you put in 100%, you will definitely learn a lot from Dutchess Community College's engineering curriculum.
