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.
