I loved the EOF department and its staff because they were always making sure I felt loved and not stressed with upcoming exams. They were like my family on campus as I would spend 10 hours on campus 5x a week! The tutors at the ALC were extremely patient and helpful, so I decided I should become one too. I became CRLA certified and then began to use my knowledge to help my peers with their studies.
Review Union County College
Overall, Union County College is a good school. There is a good curriculum and the professors know what they are doing. I would recommend UCC to someone because they help you find your path and they are passionate about helping you succeed. Union County College cares about its students. I feel that i have learned alot studying there. It is affordable and i like that it isn't too far from home. This school has a good balance of diversity and it does not discriminate against anyone. That being said, students feel welcomed and safe. UCC also has a variety of clubs and organizations for its students to join. If you want a good college experience, then UCC is for you.
Union County College is a relatively decent school for educational purposes, but it has many set backs. Most advisors will not help you when transfering to another school or give you any solid advice on academics. The students can be pretty sociable and the food is good but those are the main positives. Half of the professors will either grade you unreasonably, lazily or not even care about the effort you put forward. If you are attending this school, do your best to get out as soon as possible. Not a completely bad school but they will do their best to keep you there.
