3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: General credit cost are good, structure of financial aid filing process isn't good & has to many limbos needs more sentences given like "this is what you need to do next.." or "this is how you can get that done..".

3 College Junior

Career Services: I was hoping hoping to get a internship right away, but because I took classes and mostly basic courses I couldn't didn't have enough Communication course to be eligible I wish I was informed on this at the beginning of my 1st semester not when it was done.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I had a wonderful teachers Professor Li, Professor Robinson, and Professor Stern all great ladies with informative teaching strategies. However my Math 101 Professor shouldn't of been hired, he always said how he hates explaining complicated concepts and rarely answered students questions in a helpful way, everyday about half the class left looking confused. He would answer questions just to move on to the next subject not to give clarity, if you pushed your question he would say "if you read the book you will understand it better I don't have time I need to move on." When in fact I did read and went to tutoring to actually be taught, several times a week. I passed the class thanks to tutoring and not at all thanks to him.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: They have great options for majors such as Entrepreneur and it doesn't hurt that there is a small business development center right on campus!

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Student Involvement are very helpful, if your interested in getting involved on campus or want to get volunteer hours. However improvements need to be made when it comes to inquiring about records and financial standing not only in one big bill, but if you want to know the costs of each individual class. Also the financial aid office is in need of better organizational understanding so they can give helpful answers and less unhelpful ones.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I know that our honors program has sent some graduates to ivy league schools to complete their degrees, but I am not sure about students outside of that program. I have seen many students continue to remain at Rockland Community College, a two year school, even after 2 years and into a 4th or 5th even 6th year. They become stuck.

2 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with the financial aid office has been hit and miss. It all depends on who is working at the front desk at the moment. They either know exactly what I am talking about and what I need, or they simply shrug their shoulders and don't understand my concerns.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am not too sure about the quality of obtaining a job or internship through the school, however there seems to always be an e-mail in my inbox about opportunities available in that regard.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There isn't truly a typical student at Rockland Community College, although I find that most everyone gives their social life a high priority.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Generally the library is crowded. When common hour comes around finding a seat is impossible. You're lucky if you can grab a spot.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I wouldn't know until I go to school

Student Body: I am not in college right now

4 College Senior

Student Body: So many different people. Weird people, smart people, black people, white people, artsy people, gay people.. and they're mostly all friends. There's a lot of diversity.

Tuition & Financial Aid: If you need financial aid, you should be able to get it. If you're like me and your family "makes too much money", then you can always just wait until the office sends out their annual booklet full of scholarships. Those are so easy to get as long as you're involved on campus. A lot of people receive those.

Career Services: The career center will land you a job like 80% of the time. They coach you on interviewing, resume writing and such. Too bad they can't come with you to the interview.

Campus Resources: Our student center is a building called the student union, and there are a couple of lounges with plenty of comfortable chairs to nap or study in, and some computers to use. There are tvs which constantly televise the work of the student media production crew. You can see what's been going on on campus, you might even see your face a couple of times because they interview everyone. And downstairs there are a couple of tvs connected to gaming devices so there are always kids gaming down there. It gets annoying sometimes because they tend to get loud playing naruto or pokemon or whatever they do down there.

The main office in this building is the student involvement office, where one can find out about all the clubs on campus, where and when they take place, or they can pick up applications for student government or volunteer services. It's a cool place.

Overall Experience: There is a career services office to help students find jobs, and almost every day there are emails sent out to the student body about new job opportunites in the area. If you don't like those, you always make an appointment with the office to find one tailored to suit your liking. There are resume writing workshops and interview workshops like every month, which are very helpful. There's also an intership office right next door to career services, which does pretty much the same thing, but for internships, of course. They help you find one that is related to your major, and if you want to work for a specific company that they don't have on file, you can go to the company and try to set that up for yourself, then come back to the office and they'll make it count as credits for you. It's really great.

There are always recruiters on campus for places like H&M, Express, Smashburger, or maybe even local businesses who need help. Some job opportunities are advertised more to certain majors, like if a photographer needed someone to come help take wedding photographs, that would be posted up in the art department. Or if a new business needed someone young on their marketing team, that would go up in the business department.

Academic Flexibility: If you're a student who wants to succeed, RCC has all the available resources. You literally go anywhere you want if you're willing to put in the work. The teachers will always make time for you if you need to see them, there are career services to help you find a job, internship services to help you find internships, the library has the needed textbooks so most of the time you don't need to buy textbooks if you'd rather make copies. They have a great criminal justice program, and a wonderful nursing program. There are night classes for those with work and children, there are weekend classes for those who have a packed weekday schedule. I'm in the honors program, which is very prestigious and you can be in it if you can maintain a 3.5 gpa. You get to take specialized honors classes and you get an assigned mentor to help you along and check in on your progress every now and then. It's rigorous and if you can do it, it's easy to transfer into a great four year college. This one kid I know came into the school with a gpa below 1. Now he goes to Georgetown University in Washington D.C., a very well known and prestigous college. I'm telling you, if you want it, you can get it here at Rockland Community College.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is extremely helpful--I won 1650$ for this semester. However, it is frustrating that there are very few options for students whose parents are middle class earners; there are very few financial aid options available (the scholarship I won was purely merit-based).

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Obviously not comparable to four-year schools: but the honors professors are incredible. Study abroad at Cambridge offered--but the cost makes it impossible for many students to go, as the available scholarships are only a fraction of the total cost.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Hard workload for honors physics students; however, it definitely prepares you for transfer.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Excellent services/ variety of options on campus

Unfortunately dissapointing professors in some areas of study

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Honors program - liberal arts/social sciences

there are a wide variety of classes available, and the teachers and advisors are excellent resources in the program
