SUNY Rockland has so treat delivered very well in terms of academics. Professors really engage and make a strong effort to help students succeed in the classroom and I never feel like there is a lack of support. There is also a lot to do on campus. There are so many clubs, a few of which I've joined this semester including Sustainability club, Habitat for Humanity, and stage crew for the theater department. Getting involved has helped me make friends and have fun!
One thing my school could improve on is the cafeteria options. They serve pizza, chicken tenders, sandwiches, and have a salad bar. This may seem fine to anyone who wants a quick bite to eat, but to those with dietary restrictions like myself (I have celiac disease so I have to avoid gluten) it can be discouraging to not have a selection of food to eat other than salad from a place that was most likely cross-contaminated with gluten-containing foods.

I am an Early Admit student in the Honors program studying Political Science. Really cool kids here. Classes are easy if you're not in the Honors program. I think they are almost too easy - but if you are a middling student it would probably be amazing. A lot easier than HS. Professors have been hit or miss, although this happens at most schools. Great value - $2,600 a semester is a steal, especially since Binghamton and the like are twice that, and that's not even including the absurdly expensive room and board. The campus is beautiful, and the faculty seems to really care about the students' inputs and voices. Very diverse student body in terms of race/ethnicity AND beliefs. Very happy with the different political perspectives encouraged in and out of the classroom. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my experience so far - I am confident I made the right choice in graduating HS early. (God Clarkstown North is awful...)
This is my second year of RCC and It's been a great journey! Especially if you are in the honors program, you connect with amazing professors that engage students to learn. I believe that RCC was the best choice before enrolling to a four-year school. It has prepared me well enough for the future. I have met great peers that want to succeed. The school has given me great opportunities such as internships and academic work!
