Allegany College of Maryland Reviews
Allegany College of Maryland is located in rural Western Maryland offering many different unique opportunities in it's surrounding area. The classes are not over crowded allowing for more interaction between the professors and students and the professors really seem to care about your education. The professors I have had want students to succeed and offer their assistance whenever asked. If you are not doing well in a class they will offer on their own after class. If eligible for their Pathways to Success program, I highly recommend that. It involves one on one tutoring and the people are genuinely interested in how you are doing and if there is anything they can do to help you.
The school is amazing on the budget, and even has dorms for those who want dorm-life at a community college. The admissions process is very simple- the school even gives college credit for AP exams, which got me a semester ahead in college! Now Allegany is a community college, so a lot of people are not super-social and only stay on the campus for classes, however, there are some clubs and organizations that you can join- and probably should if you want to meet people! Allegany is unique because it has some of the pros of a 4 year institute (Dorms, mutliple campuses, etc.), but it has the price of a community college. Not to mention, it is beautifully nestled in the mountains and is nearby all social activities in Cumberland, MD. Also, if you're really craving a good party, Frostburg University is only 15 minutes away.
As mentioned earlier, I believe there are a lot of classes that are unnecessary for my particular major. I don't think college algebra should be a required course for teaching early childhood. I believe it is wasting the instructors time and also the college students time, when they are required to take classes that are not beneficial to our major. For the most part I have had instructors that are great! Most of my education classes are wonderful teachers, and on the other hand I felt like some of the teachers that were not teaching specific education classes were not enjoying their time there and I get the feeling they don't enjoy teaching anymore.
