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!

I've been at Collin College about 4 years. I started as a dual credit student when I was in 11th grade. Overall, my experience at Collin was pretty good. I would definitely recommend to anyone who goes, to go to the advising when you first start and keep going to ensure you're taking the right classes, etc. Also, check out ratemyprofessors.com website. Believe me, I learned the hard way and I got stuck with a horrible teacher!

The campus is nice and I have passed by the dorms which look like regular apartments but I never stayed in one. Collin offers many other activities like, athletics and student life groups. Neither of these I was involved in but Collin does have many options for those who like sports or groups to join for social butterflies.
Great Professors and very cheap. The professors really care about you and want to help you succeed, unlike big university professors. The return on investment is very high because classes are very cheap (the books are usually more expensive). However, there is not a whole lot of student life stuff, especially at the central park campus (McKinney), but that doesn't stop them from trying! If you are thinking about taking a gap year before college, take one or two classes here and you'll be fine. Collin College is a great school not only for your money, but as a student as well. The professors really care not only in a small classroom, but in a big lecture hall as well.
