The college was very diverse which I loved.thr advising team at Union County College are amazing, they care about the students and their future. Their professors however, are horrible! They don’t care about the students ..most of them set you up to fail! I had such terrible experiences with Adjunk professors at union county college! They need to hire people who cares about teaching and not just a pay check!

The school has some issues to work on. The parking is terrible and the parking reinforcement loves giving out tickets knowing students have issues finding parking in the first place. The college could also work on their wifi services as some of the buildings have minimal to zero internet connection. The advising is little to no help. It is really hard to navigate through their suggested major curriculum, which gives conflicting information on classes on their website and canvas. It is safe to say I will be transferring the upcoming semester. It is a community college after all.
Ucc offers free tutoring in all subjects. So if I am struggling in a particular class, I can go to the ALC and get help. All of the tutors are students, so they know exactly what's it like to not understand particular topics. They are always looking to hire new tutors, so this is a great way to make easy money. The library rents out textbooks for 2 hours, so you don't necessarily have to waste your money buying textbooks. You can also print out an unlimited amount of papers and rent laptops in the library. There is only 3 main buildings, so it's not hard to find your way around campus. The only con that I can think of is that even though there are many classes available at many different times, there aren't many professors to choose from. So if you don't like a particular professor, you might need to take a very early or late class just so that you won't have to have that professor. With all that being said, if Ucc seems very appealing to you than you should definitely attend!
