Student Body: The student body is very diverse, but segmented. People that have their different attributes in common usually stay to their own groups. Not many outgoing individuals that go out of their way to meet new people. It reminds me of a high school. The school is great for academics, in my opinion, because of select teachers, such as Dr. Singer and Professor Weintraub, who have single-handedly changed my life and my thinking. I really believe that is depends on the person.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is a melting pot, however 90% of people keep to themselves.

4 College Student

Student Body: I have not met any crazy or racist employee, staff, or student there. I love everyone there. It is a friendly place to be. We all like to help one another.

3 College Junior

Student Body: In my ESL class almost everybody is from different country.

5 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: i found a lot of peer students that were very studious and focused. We had a lot of group study sessions that were very serious. Everyone helped each other and taught each other materials. we would stay late at night and even work on weekends together when important exams were due.

Union County College is a very culturally and ethnically diverse college. Students from all walks of life attend the College in order to better their lives and further their education. Student interaction varies, but it's certainly present throughout campus. Most students just want to get to their classes, be minimally socially active, and move on. 

The average student is a recent high school graduate, but there is a percentage of older individuals (30 and older) attending. There is no real majority group, but most students are either Latino, white, or African American. However, most of the students have one common factor: the goal to quickly transfer to a four-year institution. The most common conversation is about what school a student is transferring to. Overall, UCC is a very diverse school and sports a decent social environment.
