SUNY Ulster Reviews

My experience with SUNY ULSTER has been very satisfying for me. The amount of attention professors spend with their students is something amazing. When it comes to lectures, they are interesting, and you can get a lot of information needed.
like I said. The board is not good but the teachers try their hardest with what they are provided. I love all of the teachers! not so much the rest of the school.
Great school! Professors and very lenient and it's pretty easy. I love the art department but the rest of the school is a bit iffy. When it comes to financial aid and the big hosses, it lacks. There is always miss communicating from the board to the students.
There is so much one on one attention. If you need help, you can get it. This school adjusted very well to online teaching. All my professors this past fall semester was always in contact with me and answering my questions whenever I had them. There are also sports and other extracurricular activities for students to enjoy.
My online learning experience has been great. Personally, I much rather learn in person (as many other students would), but my professors at this school really worked hard on giving students an optimal learning experience. This pandemic has been extremely stressful for students and teachers alike, and my professors were very cognizant of this.
Ulster is a community college that focuses on giving someone the pillars needed for higher learning and has full degrees that prepare someone for today's job market. A good portion of the student population coming to the college after high school do not take classes seriously and people coming to classes without the mindset of self-improvement will fail. Suny Ulster does not hold students' hands and does not give easy grades. The profs will help, teach, and support students that try to understand. There are resources for extra help and many students do not seek out help. College is not high school and this college has the reputation of being 13th grade, it is not and anyone will learn that after failing their first semester.
It is not your average college scene. There is no room and board. The campus life is lively at 1pm till 2pm when all the clubs and activities take place. I personally was in Environmental and Biology Club. Professors I have had have been very helpful and they give great advice when you need help. They are internships offered to students who need more experience in their field. They offer tutoring for math and there is a writing center where tutoring is also offered. They also have a one on one tutor for student who prefer that. Our most popular sporting events are volleyball and basketball. The cafeteria has hot lunch specials everyday and a sandwich station, they also do breakfast in the morning. The one problem I think they should fix is that the rooms look outdated and need an update, some new desks or new projectors. Another issue that bothered me was the water sometimes the fountains where covered with bags because of water issues. And to install water bottle filling fountains.
I personally do not like online learning. Some professors knew how to use the Blackboard system and others did not. Some Professor I had would sent us reminders on Blackboard if homework is due or if we had a test the next day. They posted several review materials that helped me study. If there was no time left in class for a test it would be posted online for students to do on their own time. It helped because then you can still continue learning new material in class. You can also enter the grades into blackboard and students can track how they are doing in class, its very helpful. The professors that do not know how to use the Blackboard system would try to cover everything in class and move to fast through the course, you cant really learn anything that way.
Overall I enjoyed my time at SUNY Ulster, the Professors always do their best to help students, and for the price I feel as though you certainly get a deal out of the school. In the end though, your time here will also be determined by those around you. At times I felt as though other students were not taking the classes with full seriousness. A good choice for local students if they are unsure about going away, however.
I liked SUNY Ulster because it was a great place to start my college education. It has helped me learn what I want to study and has better prepared me for a 4-year school.
SUNY Ulster is an interesting school. The academics are fairly easy, and the professors seem to care. But the kicker are the other students. Being a community college, it is obvious that some people just do not want to be there. There are certainly people who do indeed want to be there, and the support for those people is great. But, sometimes it feels like high school part two.
Attending SUNY Ulster is one of the best decisions I've ever made. SUNY Ulster helps students save money and gives them the resources and opportunities to be successful after they graduate. The Foundation at SUNY Ulster is available to students who fall upon unexpected hardship and need financial support. SUNY Ulster also has one lecture hall. Students never take a class that is set in a lecture hall which leads to a better educational experience. Small class sizes at SUNY Ulster enable to students to have a better experience class and retain more information. I would recommend this institution to anyone as they are sure to receive a great education and save thousands of dollars.
Stuff and teachers were horrible at helping and disrespectful. If you need help with anything forget about it with this school.
Could't have gotten a better education for the money I paid. Without a doubt has some of the most caring teachers I have ever had.
I liked the flexible class schedules, the professors seem to genuinely care for the students. My one complain would be the time management of some of my professors. Some assignments/exams are squeezed in, and I personally have a very busy life and am very easily stressed by last minute assignments that are given to me.
Not the best experience from this school but also not the worst. I've experienced I think the worse ends from Ulster and I wasn't able to experience the best things about College. The teachers and professors I do say are pretty amazing so I'm giving it 3 stars
I think it's a good school, with good professors and isn't as costly as 4-year colleges. Can't pursue all of my classes there for my major but it's a good school to get the gen-eds done.
