Review College of Southern Maryland
The College of Southern Maryland is a great school to start at! The largest class you will have will have about 30 people. The professors are very friendly and encourage you to get help outside the classroom if needed. Professors are quick to respond to emails and will answer your questions in a timely manner. The only thing that is lacking on campus is extra-curricular activities and clubs.
As a student I think the College of Southern Maryland is a great choice for students who have just graduated from highschool and don't quite have the money for university. Though it is community college I would say it has just as much to offer as university. There are clubs, events, tutors and other characteristics. However, there are a few things as far as advising goes. Be very careful of the advisor you get because they might recommend the wrong class for you to take. Its rare but, always make sure to get in touch with another advisor just in case. Another word of advice you wont always be able to get the answers you need over the phone if you have a problem. So sometimes go to the college in person to get the situation handled. If you ever need assistance or are confused about something ask for help there are people that will point you in the right direction.
College of Southern Maryland was the easiest route in terms of gaining credits at an affordable cost but as far as preparing you for the next step, that is something they were missing. Some of the professors really loved their jobs and went out of their way to help their students. Others were there to make the money and it was very obvious. Community college is a great investment when someone is unsure of their future. The campus is very safe and easy to navigate. It is a baby step up from high school so the environment is comfortable. There are all different types of people, younger, older, all ethnicities and religions.
