Essex County College is a 2-year community college in Newark, New Jersey, offering 49 degrees across seven departments. On top of being a short 20 minute train ride from New York City, ECC ranks first among all New Jersey 2-year schools in students successfully transferred to Rutgers University, Montclair State University, and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. ECC’s campus is home to the Africana Institute, a center for research relating to the African global experience that also hosts visiting scholars and performers.
The environment is not all bad, but tends to be a little crowded at times. The campus is pretty safe and I attend day and night classes. There is sufficient parking for students which save me money feeding the meters and getting tickets.
