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.

College of the Mainland is an excellent place to go to school because of its students, faculty, and administrators. The college is fairly old but is soon to undergo multi million dollar renovations. The wildlife on campus is a welcome and enjoyable amenity. The college is truly student-centered meaning that every staff or faculty member is there in order to help students succeed in their individual goals. Many of the staff and faculty go above and beyond what is required of them to assist students in whatever manner they may need. I have seen the staff laugh, cry, and get frustrated with students, however; they never give up on them.
Thus far my time has been pleasant. Student adivsors are incredibly helpful and readily available, staff is extremely kind, quality of education for the cost is minimal. The school is currenly undergoing major renovations to both the amenities on campus as well as the visuals of the buildings, so the appearance isn't the most pleasant. There are a wide variety of programs available to continue your education or get additional certifications for minimal cost.
