3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Well I am just a freshman taking general eds so I do not know about specific program courses, but the workload is balanced and the curriculum is well rounded. The facilities are kept clean, but at the cape may campus, there's not much to do but they do offer plenty of help for job searching.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors have been great so far, registration for classes take forever waiting in line & if you register online sometimes it doesn't go through.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: There are a lot of classes offered for my major. The workload isn't too difficult it just takes effort. I haven't looked into internships yet!

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Right now I am a pre-nursing student. I am working on my prerequisite courses and general education requirements of the nursing program. So far I have complete all my prerequisite courses and I am working on the general classes for the program. Therefore I cannot comment on the nursing courses as I have not started them yet. However, so far the program has been a great experience. I have been taking my classes 2 or 3 at a time and the workload has been significant but doable. There are a ton of resources to take advantage of, which I highly recommend for nursing students, such as tutoring. GPA is super important in this program so you need to get A's! It is a very demanding program, so I only recommend it to students who can dedicate a lot of time to their studies.

Atlantic Cape Community College has a reputation as a great starter school. The professors teach their students many basics required for college in general, such as how to write in MLA format or how to do a proper lab. Students earning a degree have a large amount of classes that they can take, and many individuals get a lot of oppurtunities for success earning community college degrees in business, culinary arts, and literature. Students that are looking for classes directly relating to more advanced majors, such as engineering and social sciences, may want to look elsewhere for a specialty college.

The professors at Atlantic Cape Community College are very qualified and are willing to help their students achieve their educational goals. A typical professor will know all of his/her students by name by the end of a course; they have advanced knowledge of what they are trying to teach their pupils and will provide in-depth lessons and discussions.

Class Sizes
The average class size on most of Atlantic Cape campuses is 18-20 students. Because of the smaller class sizes, the courses are more intimate, and students often get to know their professors and their peers better.
Student/Professor Relationships
Because Atlantic Cape Community College has smaller average class sizes, students can expect to have a relationship with their professors. The professors will, by the end of the course, often greet their students by name and will encourage questions about assignments.
Testing & Grading Procedures
Typically, class grades are divided up between attendence/participation, tests, and multiple assignments both in and out of classes (such as papers). Some professors grade heavily based on midterms and finals, but it depends on the class.
Typical Lecture - Single Day
A typical lecture normally consists of a medium to long lesson about a specific topic by the professor, often followed by activities and other learning aids. Some professors quiz students on reading assignments or lessons for a grade.
Typical Course - Start to Finish
Every course is pretty straightforward. The course workload is average and depends on the professor, as well as the difficulty of the work. Notices for upcoming tests are always given well in advance, and class projects are usually fun and interesting. In most classes, the professor is very helpful and encourages questions or group work.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School

Tips to Succeed
  • Be on time for class, and be prepared.
  • Take good notes and, if applicable, check Blackboard often for changes in schedules or for quiz dates.
