4 College Senior

Student Body: The student body at my school is very well. They come around to classrooms and introduce themselves to the students and briefly tell us whats going on sometimes. There are posters on the walls and we get little notices of when the meeting is coming and what will be discussed.

Student Body: Not a lot of options unless you attend the Cranford campus

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The campus that I'm involved with is alright within student body, but the other campus, which is bigger, I believe has a better environment within student body. Everyone here is outgoing, friendly and such but they don't really do much together unless they have already been friends from previous years in school. I observe all the time people approaching others that they do not know from a hole in the wall and they get rejected from just asking a simple question like "where is the bathroom on this floor?" It's not that terrible, but it's also not that great. I wish that it were better.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

Clubs are fairly easy to join, and starting a club just requires a small effort from the student. The honor society and the student government organization are the most active groups. Sports are not a very integral part of UCC.
