Collin College Reviews
At first I was unsure about the idea of going to a community college for the first 2 years of college keeping in mind that my friends and classmates were all studying at Universities, and I was still going late to school by 2 years, but after I attended Collin College my perspective about community colleges changed and I highly discourage anyone who underestimates the prestige of community colleges because thery are a good choice in the sense that they are cost efficient, have great food, and many fun activities to do on campus, and are also attended by students of varying top level schools. You're all getting the same education here at Collin!
The best 2 year college I've been to and I have gone to three. This two year has been aproved for a Bachelor's program of Nursing by the state of Texas, the professors, are EXCELLENT and you can tell they invest in their departments. They have over 5 campuses around the Collin County/Rockwall area and have affiliations with universities. This school offers lots of FREE tutoring on campus for your core subjects as well as online tutoring... Also FREE! This school is also VERY affordable! (<$100/credit out of county, <$50/credit in county-last time I checked)
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.
