My experience at Erie Community College as a whole was pretty good. The teachers are friendly and very accessible. Also, the classes were challenging without being overly demanding. I would definitely recommend Erie Community College as a alterative to four institutions. Additionally, for the record Erie Community College as a variety of majors to choose from, as well as certificate programs to consider. All n all, the atmosphere on campus is a lot less intimating for those coming from a small town or community.

I am a returning student at E.C.C after being a student and then taking many years off to figure out what I would like to do. In returning to E.C.C almost ten years later, the direction I have been pointed in with help of advisors and teachers has been very beneficial for me. I currently am in the Liberal Arts: Humanities program, I will graduate after the fall semester, and continue my degree at a 4 year school. My experience here has been positive and challenging, the teachers I have had throughout my course work have always been helpful, made classes interesting, have also been willing to help with my degree work to make sure I am headed in the right direction.
I'm currently enrolled in the Fine Arts program on the south campus and I'm extremely satisfied with ECC so far. The teachers come from interesting backgrounds and are passionate about what they teach. Plus, the classes have helped me hone my skills in several mediums as well as understand art history. They offer extracurricular activities relating to the Fine Arts major any student can enjoy, as well as open studio time every week to give the students space to work on projects. For anyone considering pursuing a career in art, I highly recommend attending SUNY Erie Community College.
