SUNY Monroe Community College Reviews
Even though I've only taken a few summer courses to fill in credits for my 4 year university, I am very impressed by MCC's ability to handle online learning. The professors I have (Rudd and Syzmanski) are awesome and thorough. It's been very easy to get through their course material, as well as the online access to the site is very easy to navigate. Well done in time of adversity!
Challenging curriculum and generally excellent professors for a very reasonable price. I have only encountered kind and interesting students here who are trying to do their best in this world. Very nice and comfortable library with a wealth of resources and nice places to nap and occasionally pet service dogs. The rest of the campus is nice, including a very pleasant pond to lounge around, and MCC makes an effort to host campus events featuring a respite from schoolwork like coffee and donuts or free food trucks in the parking lot. Rochester has a vibrant cultural scene including many concerts and fantastic places to eat.
Attending Monroe Community College was one of the smartest decisions I ever made! MCC was great on my budget and served as a successful start to my educational journey! By attending MCC I made lifelong connections with peers and faculty alike and received the guidance necessary to be accepted into a esteemed 4 year private institution.
