    ECC has good facilities and it's very affordable. The professors I've had so far aren't bad and they make it easy to learn. ECC has a center with programs to help students in need.

    This school is great for taking general college courses. This isn't a party school whatsoever. The school is definitely diverse when it comes to both students and staff.

    The school is cheaper than most schools. The campus is small. You can get from one end to the other in about five minutes.

    Even though the college has an average reputation, the college has a great range of dedicated and excellent professors. There is a great range of classes offered. The college's physical therapy program is the best in the state.

    ECC contains a lot of resources for students such as computer labs, a library and a bunch of activities. It's more affordable for students who can't afford to go to a four-year college. On top of that, the professors are dedicated to giving the student an education to use in the world.

    Overall Great school, but some of the financial aid staff at the Main Campus, could be more helpful. Talk to everyone, and network. Know what the teacher expects upfront.
