16 Students rated Southern Maine Community College
A very "under-rated" college. Community colleges get a bad reputation, but SMCC is a cheap, extremely viable option for anyone looking to start on a degree, and it's very easy to transfer to another degree at another institution, but the degrees absolutely prepare students for various careers.
Southern Maine Community College(SMCC) is pretty good. I am going to list off pro's, con's then my final conclusion.
Small classrooms ( Max of 30 people )
Majority of the Professors are good
Tutoring ( Free )
On Coast( Doesn't charge extra for)
2 on campus housing
Dining Hall Late night hours
Dining hall meal plans
Dining Hall food not always great
Some professors use Blackboard and some don't
Some professors want paper copy and some don't
Overall SMCC is pretty good. The tuition is pretty low and the cost per-credit is something like 90$ per. College life is pretty good. Lots of activities going on and there is something to do. One bad thing is some professors don't like blackboard while some do.
It's a nice college. It is small, but a good transition from high school to college. This school is much less intimidating than a university. It is a nice community and the teachers are very friendly. For the most part the teachers are very fair and want you to have a good college experience.

If I was allowed to go back in time and speak to my self as a high school senior I would advise my self to make more of an effort of applying for scholarships, I only recieved one scholarship and this caused my mother to have to work even harder so that I could afford my tuition and etc..
I have good relationships with my classmates we assist each other and support our diversity and study needs.
That it is to fast paste and classes demand to much work from the students but that is probley the same with every school. The school is not that bad though. The wrost thing about the school would have to be the parking lot. The parking lot could use just a little help. I know it takes money, but all of the pot holes cost students money in repairs and we are already paying for school.
When the beach is only thirty feet away, it's hard not to spend every minute between classes with your toes in the sand.
The addmissions department is very honest about the waiting period to get into the nursing program. I know that the program is full and not accepting students until fall of 2012. It helps to not play a guessing game when applying as to when I will get accepted and about how long it will take.
I researched the school before going there, so I don't really have any unknown questions at this point.
What makes this school so wonderful is its complete diversity; there is not one type of person that could represent SMCC. I have classes with people from many different backrounds and beliefs, also a variety of ages. The type of person who would get the most of this school is someone who is willing to work hard to recieve a great education. This school allows a shy person to emerge by becoming involved in an array of opportunites. A person can take the initiative to organize any club or event they wish and are provided the support they would need.
My school is best known for it's capability to inspire the kids that fell through the cracks in high school. It's teachers are known for switching students' mindset from having to do the work for someone else to wanting to do the work for themselves. It's known for the ocean it resides next to and how relaxing it is to get out of a tough class and take a walk on the beach. Lastly it's known for the diverse student and teacher backgrounds and how much of an influence it has in the classroom.
Besides the price, the location and the prospective future it provides, the best thing about my school is the devotion in the eyes of the staff. The kind of stare, glance or blink that lets you know that you're not just a number. The staff at SMCC is an accumulation of people that care if those who can barely pay for college actually go. It makes all the difference when something goes wrong and you are about to quit when the person trying to help actually cares if you see it through. They won't let you give up.
I believe that no one should feel that they shouldnt attend this school, Southern Maine Community College is a very well rounded school. There is easily 30 or more different ethnicitys at SMCC, if you have a click you can find it at SMCC.
I brag that I have made Dean's List three times since I started back in March of 2008. They are happy for me but I can tell that they get a little annoyed everytime I mention that I have made Deans List.
