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!

Dutchess Community College was a good stepping stone for me. I was not quite ready to go away to college, so this was a good option to have. I went to Suny Dutchess for 1 year. I was mostly in the South campus so it was very small and similar to my high school. My major is Criminal Justice and those teachers were fantastic. However, I had my share of teachers that made my time at Suny Dutchess difficult. My time there however, was overall a good experience. It allowed me the time I needed to mature a little and ready myself for the next step in my education. I am now transferring to a college about 3 hours away and I am ready to take charge of my life! Thank you Suny Dutchess for helping me achieve my potentials!
I am currently going to be a freshman in the Fall and I'm excited they have this class for government and the person that helped me in getting my classes told me to take behavioral science (social science). That was a great idea and I also suggested taking a public speaking class and they said it was a smart thing to do! The dorms are new and I can't wait to stay there, they have suits where a bunch of girls is together and they have rooms for two and we will be sharing a living area and a kitchen. Its gonna be an experience!
