The Early childhood education program is amazing at this college! The professors are extremely knowledgeable and get to truly know the students. The staff over the college are extremely helpful and look to help you in anyway possible. I have truly enjoyed my experience at Cleveland Community college. I work a full-time job and my professors do their best to accommodate my busy schedule by offering online and evening classes.

I have enjoyed taking online courses through Cleveland Community college. I have taken many of my major courses online. The professors communicate well and post great resources. However, if you want to truly get the help you need, do not take courses online during the summer. The professors are not as resourceful during summer courses and the courses move at a fast pass.
Cleveland Community College is a great place for students looking at getting a start in post High School Education without attending a more expensive University, but many of the things we associate with college life are absent. Namely, CCC is missing a student community, sports, and successful clubs. This is a good place if you are looking into a short term specific subject, such as cosmetology. However, you aren't going to get a real "college experience" as we understand it in pop culture.
