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.
Review Your College
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.
Great school for the price! It is a wonderful place to start your education. I really enjoyed going here because it is a the perfect size, close to home and the campus is really nice. The staff actually care about the students and want you to do well. the school has tons of resources and things to help you if you need it. things like free tutoring in most subjects and very patient advisers. wonderful school, great price, what more could you ask for.
