SUNY Dutchess Community College Reviews

I cannot recommend Dutchess Community College enough as an excellent college for undergraduates. My professors supported me in every way a college student needs to be supported, in terms of generous office hours, special project and internship opportunities, and excellent approach to teaching. The state of the art gym and library facilities gave me plenty to do and see when I was not occupied with studying and field experience. Furthermore, Dutchess Community College completely covered my financial aid needs during all two years of the program: because of my high school grades I received full tuition for all semesters I attended. I hope more students will consider attending DCC!

My experience at DCC was incredible. I just graduated this year with my Associate's of Science in Engineering and my time at DCC has taught me so much. The teachers are incredible and helpful, and the community of students there are really nice. The clubs are also really fun, just make sure to balance studies and fun effectively. Overall, the classes are difficult but prepare you greatly for your future. DCC all the way!
DCC offers a plentiful amount of resources and faculty which genuinely care about the influence of their teachings. Every course taken, has presented the ability of students to engage in healthy debate. These healthy discussions, amongst a variety of views, is playing a critical role in equipping young minds with the power to expand social outlooks and embrace diversity. DCC has helped me to define myself academically and individually. The warm atmosphere throughout campus is promoted by the faculty and fellow student body. I have obtained my own voice and clear outlook of how I wish to utilize this knowledge to contribute to the good of society. DCC has been so accommodating by offering a majority of my classes in the evening as well. It has enabled me to maintain my busy work schedule while continuing to further my education.
