Union County College Reviews
Union County College is an excellent place to learn. As a nursing major, I was offered support in cases of tutoring, access to library, and etc. Although I spent much time, I was able to move quickly in my program. Advisors often contacted individuals to meet up from time to time to make sure they are headed in the right direction. If there was a question with anything regarding your program, they were able to answer it and fix it within the appropriate time. Overall, a great place to learn!
Union County College exceeded my expectations in a way I would have never expected. The experience over all was great because it allows students to transition slowly into the "college life" which can most times be over whelming. It is not small where people feel crowded, but it is also not big to the point where you get lost. I have visited four year schools before and noticed quite often that the amount of students surpass the amount of personel working. However, in Union County College I always felt safe because both educators and security were always around. There was always communication going on in the commons where students got together, and there still is via online because of the great staff working to keep their students connected. One downside however are the advisors. While some are amazing, others will make you feel like you failed before you even get the chance to do so. It is important to know the difference between being realistic and being pessimist.
I have attended this school for 3 semesters and each semester has taught me something different. My first semester taught me balance. I learned how to balance school life with work and my social life. My second semester taught me how to study. My third semester taught me to not let your professor determine how much effort you put towards learning a subject. The school itself is a very simple and welcoming school. The workers are nice, the students are pretty cool, and the classes don't give you so much work to the point where you can't do anything but study all day. The cafeteria is well maintained and not dirty at all. The library is never empty and the computers all work. One of the best features of the college is that they offer free tutoring at the library for anyone who is struggling or needs help with a course. Over all it has been a successful 3 semesters for me.
