SUNY Mohawk Valley Community College Reviews
My experience is less average to be honest, the small campus is centered in a low income part of the city making it easier for students to get in trouble with the law. Poorly assembled activities makes it harder for students to engage and enjoy their stay in Mohawk. Public safety is quick to punish minorities and suspect them of drug use, possession or selling, same for the bias RAs. Some advisors make it hard to contact them and review what you may need to graduate on time. Lack of communication with staff makes it almost certain students will have to stay an extra semester or year. However, the classes are engaging and tutoring sessions do provide a good deal of help when struggling with a class.
The campus is very diverse and the professors and administrators are awesome. Small sized classes that give each student opportunities to interact with the professors in class and very flexible office hours are provided from each and every professors. The campus is beautiful and it feels like home there. The community itself gives students the opportunities to train and preapre to get into workforce. The basketball team, soccer team and women softball team have won nationwide awards and they have awesome coaches. Since it is so perfect and my experience there is awesome, I can surly say that there's nothing to change. Just continue staying awesome. Go Mohawk Valley Hawks!!!!
My experience was good, it worked out for me because it was close to home and I was able to work while attending school. MVCC is in a small town called Utica but overall the campus is very diverse and the professors want you to succeed, there is always help and guidance if you need it. The campus as a whole is very small but that works to an advantage. The class sizes are small so its easier to connect with teachers and integrate in the classroom. MVCC was significant to me because I didn't really know what I wanted to do when I graduated high school. Being a general studies major though helped me take different classes each semester and help me figure out what I actually like and would like to major in as I move forward and transfer to a four year.
