This school provided you with a good base education with dedicated professors. The classes were mainly auditorium-style, with less one on one due to its large population. But a great college providing great opportunities in a large city. My favorite thing about this school was the actual campus. Because Rochester gets so cold, their feature of connected buildings was very helpful. I had also stayed at their dorms which were very nice! They had a living room and full kitchen, two bathrooms, and three bedrooms. I would recommend the dorms to anyone interested. Monroe also had a great advisement team to get you in the direction.

I have been attending Monroe Community College for 2 years now and my experience has been extraordinary! The campus is easy to navigate and the staff and professors are both incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The curriculum is also very through and engaging in every class. On top of that, the other students are very friendly and open minded!
My college experience was amazing. The school is very diverse so I was able to see and witness a lot of different cultures, traditions, and backgrounds. Being a criminal justice student, my classes was always interesting because of the different races so that made the experience even better. No matter how many debates we would have about things, the class would never get to out of hand. My professors always made we got the best education. Everything was an eye opener. We we're able to see things from different perspective. The college always had different events to everybody can participate in, and different clubs for everybody. I was in Black Student Union and one thing about our club was we never discriminate against anybody. Everybody was always welcomed to our events and meetings.
