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!
Review Union County College
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.
Union county was a great experience for me! The campus wasn't too big for a community college and it was a lot more affordable that all these universities. It was pretty much diverse and the staff and faculty are very nice. From the athletic department to the financial office they are all very loving people who really are helpful and always looking for the students best interest. The advisors try their best to ensure to keep the students on track and get them out as soon as possible to continue their academic careers. One this I would say I personally felt like the food was a bit pricey, going to school everyday made if very hard to purchase a meal at school because how much I would spend on a weekly base so I would always bring food from home! Other than that I would say it's a great school with caring professors and staff and would encourage any student who lives in the county and didn't have the money for a 4 year to start off with the OWLS!!
