Calhoun Community College Reviews
My overall experience with Calhoun Community College deserves 4 stars out of 5. This can be backed by the small class sizes the ensure more individual learning and one-on-one availability with the teachers. From my experience, most of the teachers care about their students and do as much in their power to see us succeed. However, several things keep Calhoun Community College from quite the 5-star rating. The financial aid department is lacking in communication and overall availability for student. Also, the student life is lacking, but I can tell they are doing their best to improve. Overall, Calhoun Community College is definitely a great choice and the cheap expense is enough in itself to satisfy any student!
Calhoun Community College is like no other community college around. The professors are polite and professional. They hold you to high expectations and are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you're reaching your limits. The student and admissions offices are easy to access and are always willing to help get you to where you need to be. I attended another community college after Calhoun and I can definitely say that the experience at Calhoun is one of the best I have had!
I love Calhoun! I'm a freshman and the systems changed over the summer so hearing about my federal aid and scholarships took a while. I understand that isn't their fault though. I enjoy all my professors and like all my classes. The facilities are nice and everything is very up to date. My class rooms have lots of technology. I enjoy my time here at Calhoun Community College.
