I attended Union County College for 4 years, that was longer than I planned. I took a year off and resumed again. It was a good school, great teachers and developed great friendships there. Financial Aid was a hassle but things have gotten better and the construction is looking great! I like how they expanded and it became more diverse.
Review Union County College
So I transferred here from Kean University because Kean was getting expensive. Anyways lots of friendly and welcoming classmates, really nice and helpful Professors. I definitely got my money's worth!
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.
