Thus far, Westchester Community College has been a pretty good experience. Choosing to go here was one of the smartest choices I made financially, and it bought me some time to figure out what I want to do with my life. I have been going here part time for about a year and I’ve met a couple of amazing professors. I’ve heard mixed reviews about professors and how well they preform as a teacher. I’m not going to lie, it seems like there are only a select few of exceptional teachers in each department. Additionally, this school is very diverse and safe, welcoming people of many different races, cultures, and abilities. The food on campus is surprisingly good! Overall, the college may have its flaws, but it’s a great start towards your education beyond high school, and ultimately a career.

I did not particularly like it. I have to admit that all the teachers I had were great. They were awesome at explaining, very open to questions and fair graders. The students though were not at a college level. I am an international student here, and the teachers were all very welcoming. I really liked the atmosphere. Where I come from universities are much, much bigger; you are assigned a matriculation number, and the teachers do not even know your name. While here the approach was more individual.
I hated going to meet one of the counselors! Take into consideration at least 2 hours if you want to go. The wait was just stressful and a total waste of time. I have only been there twice and the counselors I've met were extremely nice to me. They were kind even though they didn't know how to solve my problem. They both said the next time I could just walk in their office, instead of doing the line. I truly appreciated how helpful they were trying to be.
Westchester Community College has felt like home to me. It is my third year attending, when I first began back in 2016 at this school, I thought I did not need to attend College, that it just "was not for me." I did not do so well my first year and still struggled, after finding an amazing counselor to talk to and help me in my path of learning, I realized what I wanted to do and how important school meant to me, the professors actually care about their students. I have no had one single professor who has not helped me out in a single way. They are all amazing, I am happy to attend a school like this. I would very much recommend this school to anyone. You will find your path in life, especially with help from these amazing counselors and professors.
