Allegany College of Maryland Reviews
I was terrified to start college, but I couldn't imagine my life any differently now. Our campus is fairly small and easy to get around. Majoring in Multimedia Technology, I'm usually in classes with the same 20 or so people. It's easy to make friends since we share a lot of the same interests! There is such a variety of clubs to join! I'm in the choir, Creative Club, a christian fellowship group, and Phi Theta Kappa. PTK is the community college national honor society. That community in itself is a blessing. We go out and serve the school and community in so many different ways. Meeting tons of new people has been amazing! The professors are so involved in every class and make learning a real experience. They want us to succeed and find jobs we love!
Allegany College of Maryland has a really nice campus. Everyone is so nice there. They have the best food and everything there is just amazing. Every time you pass someone, they are always very inviting and very pleasant. It’s very rare to run into anyone who would be mean. They have a lovely cafe, they even have a grill where you can get burgers or other items. Then they have another section where you can get wraps and plenty of other items. I just love Allegany so much and I’m sure you will too!
The overall experience I have had at Allegany College of Maryland is positive. During my first two semesters taking the general education courses I experienced a mix of professors. It was only in two of my five classes that I truly learned anything, primarily because of the instructors level of involvement . Once I entered into my degree classes the level of true learning increased. I am in the Culinary Arts program and the instructors are hands-on and available. This college offers a unique opportunity for it's Culinary students, the students in the program operate a full service restaurant while school is in session and the whole summer. The hours worked in the restaurant are counted for lab hours and offer experience building that will impress future employers. The program is intended to prepare chefs to immediately join the work force with experience and no student debit.
