Susanne

In the time I have been at College of the Mainland, I have learned to become a social bug. I kept to myself and just attended my classes when I first started college. However, I am an active student on campus. The professors are great, and they are the reason I am such an active student. The Student Life department is very supportive of student activities, and they will help guide you through the campus policies or any questions you have. Only down side is that the food is not very good, but they are changing vendors this upcoming semester!

Robyne

COM is a great two -year college to get started at! It is nowhere near as expensive as major universities and is a great place to get the basics done at a significantly lower cost. Attending COM is nowhere near as stressful as jumping straight into a four-year university, but gets you prepped for transfer, if that is what you decide on doing.

Desiree

College of the Mainland is a great and well-known community college. They have good professors who will work with you, great activities during the week during college hour, and great classes that transfer (depending on University). The staff is very friendly and very helpful. There is not one downside to College of the Mainland that I can think of. College of the Mainland has given me the opportunity to better myself as an individual and I thank them for it.

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for College of the Mainland is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    The advice I would give myself would be "don't feel rushed to choose what you want to major in," and to "focus, study & always remember you are doing this for YOU." I say this because I went to school straight out of high school. I was urged, by someone really close to me, to continue my education at a trade school. I haven't made use of that degree, because after graduating I realized it didn't make me happy. When I was in school I didn't realize that I had to focus 100%. I was a lot younger then and had a lot more on my mind than studying, although I still always received good grades, I regret not having focused a lot more. If I had, I would have showed my true abilities and gotten even better grades. An education is something that will follow you your entire life. It defines you in many ways, and to many people. Most importantly, it helps you find out who you are, which to me, is one of the stepping stones to becoming truly happy in life.
