I came to Cecil as an aspiring physics and mathematics student in my mid-twenties. After having attempted my post-secondary education previously and having to withdraw due to life issues, I was able to meet and greatly exceed course expectations and I am now well on my way to graduating with five STEM degrees. Cecil College makes it possible for anybody to pursue their educational desire, regardless of previous academic record. With supportive faculty and staff, suitable amenities, and ample academic opportunities, Cecil College is an excellent choice for a small-scale two-year college

Cecil is definitely a good fit if your high school grades or test scores weren't so great because you can establish a great GPA and get Gen Eds done so when you transfer, tuition isn't as high and your high school grades are replaced with a college transcript. It's affordable, and is great if you don't know what you want to major in yet. There's lots of programs to choose from, and Cecil allows you to try them all and find your fit. Teachers here are super passionate about the subjects they teach, and it's hard not to be affected by their enthusiasm. There aren't many student activities and there's no real food on campus, but students here really love to watch the basketball, soccer, and baseball teams. Also, there's some great walking trails in the back of the campus if you need to get some air and a pretty nice gym.
The first thing I've noticed about Cecil is that it's meant to be a stepping stone school, a transition between high school and a 4 year that isn't (or shouldn't be)as taxing on you're wallet as jumping into a university tends to be. If you're willing to tough out the growing pains of you and your classmates, consider Cecil a solid fit if you live in the area!
