When I first began my interest in Cecil College, I new where it was. But there were not a lot of options to see how much it costs. Lots of questions arised for me and my parents. We didn't know who to contact except for admission office and it wasn't until we actually went to the college and tank to an advisor that we began to get answers. Once we were with the advisor she stated that I did not need to take the English/Writing pre-exam to see what classes I would need. I took that test and revisited the advisor. The same one was not available so we saw another advisor. She stated that I needed to go take the English/Writing test because I missed the grade point by 1. So I couldn't sign up for any classes until I passed the test. So I had to take the test. Instead of doing it all at the same time. Since then things have been much smoother. I love my photography class!

Cecil College is a great option for those fresh out of high school. Class sizes are comparable to those is high school. Therefore professors know each student by name. The campus is small and relatively quite. There are no dormitories available. The majority of students that attend Cecil College live nearby and easily commute. Students are friendly yet keep to themselves for the most part.

Jennifer

As a whole, the campus is clean, well lit, well staffed, and generally safe. There is ample room for studying and fraternizing, and the free gym membership is definitely a big perk. If you're not into being confined in a building to work out, there's actually a few gorgeous walking/hiking paths behind the school. The class sizes are moderate, and most of the professors try to make themselves available at all times, mostly through email. As with anywhere, there are downsides. The café is lacking, however they really are trying to bring in outside food, as well as inviting food trucks to sell out front. The computer systems could use an update, considering they take a minimum of 5 minutes just to log on, however the ability to use a computer/printer is a big perk. All in all, Cecil College is a great place to earn an associates degree, especially considering they're held to the same academic standards as the 4 year colleges in Maryland. You'll receive the same education regardless of the location, and it's much less expensive.

Natalie

The class size is great and all of your professors know who you are (they will notice if you skip class). The people around campus are very friendly. Because it is a pretty small school, you see people that you know all the time. Overall, I've had a great experience at Cecil College.

  3. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I would have wanted to know how to be myself around others instead of being so self conscious and shy.

If I would of forgiven myself of my flaws and just simply starting talking to people I would of had a more enjoyable first five months.

    the most popular groups for Cecil to my knowledge is the Baseball team and the theatrical performances at Milborn Stone Theater (On Campus).

    The best thing about my school is the scence study rooms. These are really nice for people who have a major where they are required to take hard science classes like Anatomy and Physiology.
