Southern Maine Community College Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The worst thing about my school is the waiting list for the Nursing Program. There are simply more students wanting to enter the program than they have room for. They are also having trouble getting enough people to teach the required classes. So as much as it is annoying to have to wait, I understand their dilemma.


As it is a small public school in a state with small poplulation, resources are limited. Therefore the staffing level is also limited. This makes it often difficult to reach a live person via telephone in admissions, financial aid, and other adminstrative departments at the college. Typically, you must leave a message and wait for a reply. Sometimes I've had to leave more than one message to get a reply.


The only problem I have with this schoool is the inablitiy to pick up books and sylibus from tachers before the actual week of class. I am a person who likes to be prepared and review the material, for a better understanding of the courses. The food is not good either.


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.
