  • Sep-04-2017 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I love how close it is from home. I live literally like 5 minutes down the road. I have heard a lot of great things from this school.

    A really nice campus, right on top of a hill though so it's best to go into buildings and take the elevator to get to the top. I really suggest checking out the lecture halls though since they could definitely put someone off. But overall it's a great place and a good start!

    For what you get with the little money you spend it's totally worth it. They offer free tutoring, career counseling and a friendly, helpful staff. A lot of the teachers only want to see you succeed to help you move onto a career or a four year school.

    It's a good school. If you find people who are more academically motivated and more interested in getting an education, it's really great (join PTK, the honors society). Try to get involved, there's a lot of campus that you can influence - it's much better than high school.

    Dutchess Community College was an eye-opening experience to me. I was still living at home and had a lot of time to myself, which really gave me the chance to gather my thoughts and figure out my future plans. Because of this, within my first semester there I decided that I wanted to go into chemistry because of the great chem teachers there.

    DCC is an amazing community college with an incredibly diverse student body, and staff to match. This institution can help you figure out what you want do, help you further an education you have already started, or be a very welcoming place for a non-traditional student who want to learn something new or even begin a new career. The variety of classes available is fantastic, and best of all, the price is right!

    As a returning student embarking on a new career, Dutchess Community College has helped me develop and realize my intellectual and personal abilities. They have guided and encouraged excellence in academics with a well trained teaching staff and furnished me with the opportunity to give back by tutoring through their student resource community. Dutchess has given me the tools to solidify my goals and dreams.

    This college is great for new students. It has a wide variety of courses and programs to take and there is no hassle changing majors since you can get most of your general education credits out of the way here. It's a very nice transition school from home to a four-year college.
