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 applied for the Honors program at Rockland Community College after high school, and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. The professors are kind and caring and the atmosphere of the school overall is very nice. It's not a big school, so classes are typically small, especially in the honors department, but that's what I enjoy!
RCC has competent professors even in non-honors courses and since I'm in the honors program as an early admit student, the workload is quite rigorous. There are usually a few clubs per day pertaining to my major (business administration) and several campus activities occurring all day long. However, since this is a commuter school, athletics aren't that popular here and school spirit is limited compared to four-year schools like SUNY Binghamton. This campus is incredibly safe, located 40 minutes from NYC in affluent Suffern, and diverse with students from all socioeconomic, ethnic, cultural, and generational backgrounds. However, there isn't much to do outside campus besides a few malls, since Rockland County is mostly suburban. New York City is where the fun is.
