Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

ECC allows you the opportunity to succeed at anything you want to accomplis. You must be involved in your planning and follow through with your commitments. I did struggle with. Certain science classes I chose in my spring session. But was able to drop them without problem


Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

3 campuses to choose from. Downtown campus is in a beautiful old building. Most credits will transfer to UB. Downtown is fun, North is a nice place to go, and the south is right next to where the Bills play. I have taken courses at all three and liked them all.
