Shara - 07/05/2020

I thought Manchester Community College was great and I am definitively recommending the college to my friends. It is cheap and everyone there is so nice and helpful. Even if it doesn't have the major you want, it is a good starting point to get out a lot of the classes you need for a lot less money and then transfer to a different college to finish up.


I think that Manchester Community College is very underrated. People look down on Community Colleges, but they really shouldn't. There are teachers that I have that are teaching the same course at state universities for probably around half the price and in smaller settings. Their arts program, from what I have seen, is pretty great. Most professors I have had care about the students that they have and want to see them succeed. People shouldn't count this college out just because it is a community college because the quality of the education you can get here is pretty great.


great teachers and lower cost than any of other college. Friendly and always there to help students out.


It is a great stepping stone on to bigger and better things. While the social scene is virtually non existent here and there are limited clubs and programs that aren't to student government association, the school itself offers the comfort that big universities do not. Professors are easy to contact and talk to and the classes are small providing a more one on one experience necessary for future learning and growth in education.
