Alpena Community College is a great college to start your education. I was able to finish all my prerequisites for a low cost! The professors are amazing and able to work with students one on one. The community surrounding the area is very kind, lots to do and full of life. The class sizes are small and allow for the students and professors to make friendly personal connections. There are a lot of important utilities offered to the students here as well, such as a computer lab, library, dining commons, gym, workout room, and more!

I liked attending Alpena Community College because of the smaller class sizes, which enabled students to have more one on one time with the professors. The faculty at Alpena Community College is extremely intelligent and helpful! My only complaint about Alpena Community College would be the ever-rising tuition rates. Part of the campus is located right on the river, so the surrounding area is certainly beautiful!
I love the range of programs offered at ACC. For such a small community college, there are multiple career and technical programs that a student can enroll in, complete, and have a nearly guaranteed job in a well-paying field. Without requiring transfer or additional studies, a student can graduate with immediate employment in nursing, welding, utility tech, concrete tech, auto body repair, and many others.
