Austin Community College District Reviews
The professors are all very qualified and helpful. I have attended dual credit summer classes there, and the classes were pretty flexible because they know it's a lot of information in such a small amount of time. The facility itself (I went to Cypress Creek) is very nice. The place is clean and well taken care of. Although, you can tell it has aged some. Resources are phenomenal. There is a learning lab where you can get help on anything you need, including essay writing help! There are many computers and printers that are free to use in the library. They even let you check out laptops, iPads, and calculators from the library if you need them.
I'm a Non-Traditional student, that came back to school after being out for over ten years. Every person who works at ACC that I have met along the way to getting registered was very helpful and walked me through every process. The classes and teachers are top notch and all my professors so far have had doctorate degrees. The Highland campus is my favorite because of the Accelerator Lab and Free Tutors!
For some reason, I had always built up this negative view of community college. It always seemed useless and too simple for everyone, at least that's what all my teacher told me in High School. It seemed pointless; however, after looking into the benefits of it I decided to try it out. All I have to say now is that I would recommend it to everyone. The cost efficiency, small class sizes, and flexible schedules are advantages you wouldn't be able to receive at a university. Community college is where all students should start out if you ask me!
