College of the Mainland Reviews

COM is extremely affordable, especially for students who are receiving financial aid. The staff are all amazing--the professors are knowledgeable and seem to genuinely care about their jobs. My only real complaint is that the campus is very prone to flooding, particularly the sidewalks and parking lots. On one occasion, I was nearly trapped at the school when the parking lot flooded while I was in class. Maybe that's just inevitable, however; Texas City itself is very prone to flooding.

College of the Mainland is a great and well known community college. They have good professors who will work with you, great activities during the week during college hour, and great classes that transfer(depending on University). The staff is very friendly and very helpful. There is not one down side to College of the Mainland that I can think of. College of the Mainland has given me the opportunity to better myself as an individual and I thank them for it.

GO DUCKS!
I live down the street from college of the mainland, so it's not a far drive to get there. This is my second semester going there and I really love it. All my professors have been amazing so far except maybe one teacher. The teachers really try to help you with anything you need as well as the advisors. Everyone at college of the mainland are just so sweet there and the campus has a real home like atmosphere to it. You'll instantly fall in love with it.
