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!

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!
Union County College, like many places, is what you make of it. Despite the negative connotations it faces as a 2 year school, the opportunities for growth, excellence, and connections are boundless. Whether it be through Phi Theta Kappa, our honor society, tutoring at the Academic Learning Center, or engaging in the plethora of clubs and on-campus activities offered, UCC allows anyone searching for community and opportunity to find it.

It took me two semesters to realize this, and yet during my last year, I was still able to make lifelong friendships and find unique career opportunities through my professors, mentors, peers, and anyone else who was willing to help.

UCC is a great school, and the only complaint I truly have is the miscommunication about financial aid, and the mediocre food. Otherwise, attending this college is a great way to learn about what you want to do in life, and to find a community that truly supports, inspires, and pushes you to be your best self.
