    The faculty members are informative and helpful, especially when you get along with your favorite teachers. This is a good school for getting a degree in an aviation related program. It is the only aviation school that is located in the tri-state area in New York City which is next to LaGuardia Airport and busses to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and other areas in Queens makes commuting easier for those who lives in the tri-state area. The tuition is expensive which makes paying for tuition tedious but you can still register for the courses next semester if the final balance is at $500 or less. If you are a pilot and you want an R-ATP license, then go for Aircraft Operations program. Otherwise, go to aeronautical science program and fly for another flight school in Republic airport or Westchester airport. Just plan ahead and you don't have to go into too many problems.

    I came to Vaughn to study Mechanical Engineering. Being relatively a new offering, the curriculum proved to be one of the greatest planned out engineering courses. The professors here are excellent. You learn a lot of information and go more in depth than other schools. The great thing about the college is its small class size. You can really ask questions and understand the topics. Speaking from industry experience the Engineering professors at Vaughn helped me truly understand core principles that aided me in distinguishing myself from other candidates from other schools in the same degree. This is an excellent school and has created a very strong foundation for my professional career.
    I started transitioning the live classes to zoom due to COVID-19. If you are taking any lab courses, make sure you know how are you going to do your sessions. If you can't do lab sessions, drop that class and save your GPA. In other words, it is good about not commuting to school but you have to go to zoom on your device. If you are taking a math course, make sure you know how is your professor is going to teach because we were supposed to go to zoom to learn. I can understand physics in theory but for using formulas and calculations, it is hard to learn. In other words, it is okay. Just make sure you are learning in the best possible way if you are taking courses online.
