Collin College has not only a variety of campuses that you can attend but also a variety of class and professors that you can choose from which is great. I loved having all those options. They also partner with a lot of the universities around the area to help make sure your credits will transfer over. However, you don't get a lot of help from the counselors/staff there unless you seek it out (which I get, I mean they don't know you need help unless you ask for it) and although they will help you, there is always an incredibly long wait time and you don't always get someone who will truly help you understand what your needing help with, which is kind of a bummer, especially for first generation college students who feel lost. And don't even get me started on the commute. I hated it! But other than those few complaints I did enjoy my time at Collin. The facilities are nice and generally so are the faces you see there.

Collin College is certainly a good environment for people to get started. For the most part, teachers are extremely willing to help, scheduling classes is reasonable, and prices are wonderful! A suggestion is maybe to make the college a but more welcoming and creating more convenient events for students to get involved in. I think for people who are attempting to start groups or clubs might try to seek out what truly interests more than just a few students before creating an official group. Nothing wrong with having just a few people in a club, but for those who are wanting more people, might want to try and involve the college staff and students a bit more. College Spirit would definitely make attending much more interesting!
I just finished my Freshman Year at Collin College. I live in Mckinney, just 15 minutes away from both their Preston Ridge and Central Park campuses, and that makes it easy for me to commute to class and live at home. The money I've saved is compounded by the fact that class tuition is highly inexpensive. And thanks to ratemyprofessor.com, I've been able to cherry-pick the professors I take. Collin makes many brilliant and open-minded professors available to its students, and this is another factor that's contributed to the largely stress-free Freshman year I've had there. If you live in Frisco, GO TO THIS COLLEGE!
