My college experience at Collin College was great! At first, I was hesitant to attend a community college due to not having the actual "college" experience. However, Collin has a positive atmosphere and it was easy to make friends. The professors I personally had, went out of their way to teach the students with their best quality teaching. During finals the staff takes their time to have different activities for students to release stress. If Collin had a 4 year program for psychology I would definitely have stayed; However, Collin was nothing but good memories and good professors I will miss it.

Collin college is excellent! As the cheapest university in Texas, it can't be beat. At the price point it is at, it still has excellent academics, great services for students, awesome teachers and a friendly environment. My experience here has been superb, I have had no complaints as far as the teachers, advisors, and other staff go, with them being some of the friendliest and most helpful professionals I have ever met. The course material has been consistently engaging, never slow but always manageable. I have always felt safe here, the campus's open space in-between buildings is beautiful, and just based on its location the weather is almost always sunny and warm. And most importantly for many students, myself included, Collin has some of the most broadly transferrable credits out of any college ever, or so I've heard. After this last semester I will be transferring to Texas Tech in the fall and I will only have good memories and good things to say about my time at Collin.
I took some classes online like Sociology and Humanities and the learning style was to me, not difficult at all. While it is online, I liked how Collin formed their learning platform, Canvas, to make it convenient for students. For some classes, we did have to attend Zoom meetings once and a while, but it wasn't anything boring or dreadful. I like how the professors work around the online learning experience by changing up their teaching style too!
