  • Most of the problem is that this is a bad area and the schools have become concentrated with violence and this is not something which seems to fade away at higher levels of education here
  • He is not the only person I know who has not finished this school because they found friends here and decided to slack off, I guess this could be the case with any school but it is more so here because a majority of the people lack motivation to do well and just want to fit in with their friends
  • The education is not the best but there are a lot of class choices which my uncle enjoyed when he went there, he also liked the size of the campus because it was big and fit for him to roam around

      I do not know much about community colleges in general but I have heard people say that anyone is allowed into them and that you can find all type of people from drug addicts to future doctors here. I do not know if this is the case for every community college but I can say that in it is the case at Westchester Community College.

      Most of the problem is that this is a bad area and the schools have become concentrated with violence and this is not something which seems to fade away at higher levels of education here.

      So, all of the high school students who were acting out in school decide they want to give college a try and they come here and do the very same thing that they were doing in high


      school.

      I have seen many gang members here but you will also find older people trying to better themselves, here you have a student body that is such a wide variety because you have people who come to the school so they can save money and transfer to another school and you have others who will never do well enough in school to transfer at all.

      Also, this becomes a problem because many students come here and want to do good in college but they end up hanging out with the same friends that harmed them a year earlier in high school and this stops them from ever finishing school.

      One of my uncles went to this college a few years after he had graduated from the local high school and when he found he knew a ...


      • lot of people there he decided it was more fan to hang out.

        He is now 34 years old and he currently has three credits and has to lie on his resume in order to get a job.

        He is not the only person I know who has not finished this school because they found friends here and decided to slack off, I guess this could be the case with any school but it is more so here because a majority of the people lack motivation to do well and just want to fit in with their friends.

        The education is not the best but there are a lot of class choices which my uncle enjoyed when he went there, he also liked the size of the campus because it was big and fit for him to

        roam around.

        Also, the classes hold about 30 people on average which is not a lot at all by college standards but you will find that the average professor does not really take time to build a personal relationship with the student which means that the students are given less help with the material and they fall behind without anyone to help them.

        The school is not bad if and only if you have the motivation to work on yourself and by yourself because you will find that it is pretty hard to get personal attention from the professors here despite the fact that they do not have many students per class.

        The problem is that professors and students are too busy to actually put everything into giving or getting education which is a shame to say the least.
