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.

RCC is a mixed bag with high highs and middling lows. Professors like Eric Magaram and Lynn Aaron are absolutely incredible, but you also have professors where you'll have to learn everything from the textbook. At its worst, RCC had me self-learning Calculus II-III and Physics I-II with professors I wasn't able to learn well from, but ultimately didn't hinder my learning either. At its best, I was being taught Calculus I and Programming II hands-on and learning really well. Ultimately RCC ramps up from high school level learning to local university level learning. If you're me, you're very thankful for that gentler curve while wishing it was just a little bit steeper so Calculus and Programming could have covered more (here's to hoping the CS degree pans out)
My experiences at SUNY Rockland Community College has been a great one. I originally went away to college to the city after high school, however a sickness forced me to come home and get treatment. While getting treatment I enrolled into SUNY Rockland Community College. SUNY Rockland Community College is a great college for kids and young adults focused on school and getting their credits to transfer to a 4 Year University. The courses are run so well and the professors have so much knowledge and more then willing to go above and beyond for their students. However the School has little to no social or party life. If that is something that is high on your exceptions for a college then this is not the place for you. This is a place for strictly learning and getting on top of your education.
