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!
Class sizes are about normal to less than normal so, you always get the help you need without getting lost among a sea of classmates. Teachers are some of the best I have ever had. They are so passionate about the subjects they teach. They make you become interested and curious about the subject. Thanks to my awesome professors, I love History, Oceanography and Earth Science! I would have never thought I would find those classes fun or interesting. Go here if you want to actually enjoy your classes! Even the core classes that are mandatory, with the right professor it won't be a drag!
