SUNY Hudson Valley Community College Reviews
SUNY Hudson Valley Community College is a pretty good school. The cost of attendance is inexpensive, and depending on your major, you could have an outstanding return on your investment. Food, safety, and athletics are all average. Instructors make the most significant difference with being able to maximize on the material that is learned. Most considerable grip with this institution is the lack of knowledge and actual advisement within the advising process. Education, therefore, maximizing transfer capabilities are severely lacking. I have interacted with three different departments, and the office of non-matriculating students was fare more enthusiastic to assist and advise when it came to selecting the correct courses to take.
I've been with Hudson Valley for three years now and I've enjoyed every single day with them. Most people have a sour approach when it comes to community colleges, and after being a student at one, I can't see why they would think that. My teachers are so personal and I feel comfortable going to them for help. I am pushed to be my best constantly! They have a healthy mix of being stern and strict, but friendly and helpful. I always recommend coming to Hudson Valley to anyone I know in the area. Since I am transferring this year, it's safe to say that they have prepared me very well for my future.
The price is great without sacrifice of quality. Sure, some professors aren't the best but there are many skilled people teaching here who are helpful and knowledgeable. How much you get out of the education here is dependent upon the attention and effort you put in. It is especially good for people who aren't sure what to study or who may not yet be masters of their habits, since the cost of failure is low and one can develop their focus with less stress than would come with having tens of thousands of dollars on the bill.
