East Mississippi Community College has two campuses. I attend the Mayhew campus which doesn't have any residential housing. My review is based on this campus. The majority of my classes challenged me more than I expected and the professors were always available outside of class. Online classes tended to be a lot easier than the ones in the classroom.

Mason

I feel like East Mississippi Community College is an amazing community college with teachers who seem to love there job and are more than willing to help students with anything they need help with. I find myself growing as a student as I attend EMCC and I strongly believe that it makes an amazing transitional college for anybody who does not feel prepared to go straight to a four year college. I find myself around friendly faces as I walk around the campus as most of the students are pretty nice and easy to talk to. The classes are all incredibly engaging and make you want to learn. I am very glad I decided to attend East Mississippi Community College before moving to a four year college and would encourage every high school student around here to do so as well.

EMCC is a great college to meet a variety of people, but the only thing I don't like about the school would have to be the football players because they get more better treatment than we do as regular students and people would put the football players on this high throne. I love the environment, I love the people there, I love the teachers, I love the food, I love the night outings, and I love my dorm room. HOWEVER, when you go to the Gilbert Anderson's female residence hall, they have this dorm mother name Ms. Rhonda and she has a bad attitude with people which has people snap back at her because she can be a bit rude. I would advise all college freshmen students to NOT turn off the AC in the Gilbert Anderson Hall because it will make the floor sweat. The females in there are very friendly so there is no bullying, but I really do love this school besides the football and dorm mother. Another thing I don't like about the school is the business office because they get stuff mixed up and they act like they don't know what there doing so make sure you keep track of your stuff please because Ms. Roxxane talks fast so make sure you don't let her mess over you with that student loan because I took out the max and I still don't get textbooks!!!! so just make sure your on top of your money. For all the out-of-state students, please don't come here thinking that this school is going to be affordable because it's not. Local students got it made over there at Scooba because they are residents there so trust me they will not care about out-of-state students unless your on some type of sport team. Overall, just come here and you figure it out yourself. I met the love of my life there at the school so I can't really say the school is bad, but it's bittersweet.

I love our campus , it is a very great environment. The teacher are great , i learn fast and i and i can tel they care . We are able to get help even if our teachers are not available. This is very helpful because I do not feel like i do not have help. I really enjoy college , because i feel like they actually care.
