If you aren't a complete fool and make an effort to understand some of the teachers you can do really well and take something from your experience. There are some very good teachers at this school who provide an excellent education, though, I would remiss to deny that some are lacking and put very little effort into teaching or are just disorganized or straight up confused but they are still quite easy to navigate and usually the teachers who mess up the most are the ones to throw you a bone. I think people are being a little too bougie and looking down on the school because they're like classist. There are a lot of teachers who work really hard! There are also a lot of weird kids which is fun. And, you know, actual Black People.

SUNY Schenectady County Community College is quite a nice campus. Its small size and compact quarters makes getting to classes far easier than navigating other expansive campuses. The tuition is quite reasonable and the appearance itself is homely. Although, the setup of having some of its online features, such as Blackboard, fail when the campus itself loses power should be fixed so that students who need to hand in assignments can do so and not be limited to the campus hours. Additionally, there should be tutors for at the minimum, all the general education credits, as what I have learned is there is no tutor for General Chemistry Level 2 or Calculus 2. How can students be expected to perform well if help is not available? The food is also fairly pricey, $5 for three inconsistently sized chicken tenders, but then again, when is campus food not so pricey?
My overall experience with SCCC was good. Most of the faculty were kind and wanted to see the Students succeed. The only downsides of the school is that some of the teachers I had to take classes with did not care about the students or their growth. There were multiple cases where I had to go to the dean to express concerns about the teacher due to them being extremely unkind to students, making it hard for them to succeed in the class.
Other than this, the other faculty that I was fortunate to have as my teachers genuinely cared about student growth and the overall success of the class. I received help from many members of the college in order to help me receive opportunities that I would not have gotten if not for them.
