This review is based on my experience with the math& science department. I've heard that the other areas of the school do a solid job of preparing students for transferring, or for entering the work force, but the engineering program is significantly lacking. It is a very small program (currently in my fourth semester, I have a grand total of 8 people in my biggest class). Small class sizes mean more interaction with the professors, but unfortunately means that if you don't understand what's going on, then odds are that the other students dont either. With only one professor and section for each of the higher level courses, there are EXTREMELY limited resources as far as having the content explained in a different way. The tutor lab currently has no one employed who is capable of helping engineering students past their second semester.

I did apply for financial aid before for KCC. I was not eligible to receive it so I am not sure what the financial aid office or assistants are like. I feel that tuition anywhere is too expensive, especially books! I also feel that if schools want to raise the prices, there needs to be more ways students can access loans, financial aid, and scholarships.

There ate computers EVERYWHERE at KCC! Everytime you walk to a new wing or section of the school there is computers outside the classrooms and a computerlab near by. The library at KCC has computers on the entire lower level and upstairs their is even a lab. As far as printers go they are everywhere! I would give KCC an A+ because honestly they did a great job of making sure computers are acessible and no matter where you go their will always be a computer avalible to you.
