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 enjoy how small the campus is.
It is easy to navigate and people are friendly. When my car broke down a girl from class and a professor offered to drive me across campus if I needed it to make my class on time. They want to see you succeed and will check up on you in the halls or after class. Very personable.

The second reason I chose Alpena again years later was the diversity of online classes. I am a mother of 2 children and one on the way. It is difficult to manage going to school full time, working, balancing time for your family and driving time plus school time away. Online classes allow me flexibility to be with my family and meet their physically and emotional needs, while maintaining financial success by living within our means and bettering our future. I recommend.

What I'd like to see change would be the email response time.
When I need an answer via email it can take up to a week to get a response. However if you call or drop in they are very responsive and quick.
Its so easy to sign up for online classes and set up everything you need for online including meetings, online lab demonstrations and face to face academic planning.

Webex is easy to install and professors are very active. You also use it for classes and tests in real time. I haven't had it lag yet.

I am pleased that they offer online classes now and so much has been added in the last few years. I am a mother of 2 and expecting soon. It is easier for me to work from home as much as possible and still provide time and care to my children. I am attending Alpena Community College online to provide a better future for my children. I couldn't do that as well if I were taking more time and money away from them temporarily.

Financially I am able to live easier because I am not making the 56 mile one way trip every day or every other day to Alpena. I am saving money in gas, wear and tear on my car and baby sitting fees that would accumulate if I attended classes on campus.
