Eastern Maine Community College is a small community college. But, that's good. That means more time for professors to help their students with their classes.
The cafeteria food could improve. They need to have more choices.
The dorms are decent. They are clean and efficient.
The security needs improvement. Especially, in the parking lots at night.
You can't beat the cost of tuition.
Well worth the money spent.
They need to provide work study on the weekends. Work study helps to provide more money for college and that's the only means of financial opportunity for studentscwhike going to college.
So glad I am working for a trade. Hopefully it will pop prepare me for my future and it will provide me with a decent living.

There really is no better deal than EMCC. You save so much money if you start a four year degree here, and your GPA is so much better off too because the class sizes are smaller for your gen-eds and the teachers give you one-on-one help when you need it. Even if you don't need a 4 year degree, the two year programs and certificates for trades and technical education are like non other. The instructors are so well connected in this area that you are all but guaranteed a job after graduation. There is truly no better place than EMCC.
While the teachers themselves are amazing for the most part, I would only recommend you come here if you're a commuting student who lives in the area or a high school student looking for college credits. I hate living on campus, especially in the 'nicer' dorm (Kineo), because there's no one around and nothing to do. The gym has nothing in it except broken down equipment, the dining hall is hit or miss (mostly miss when you get to the end of the semester), there's no community, and no higher ups have any idea what they're doing or why they barely retain students. There's no organization here at all, and with the exception of the resident director in Acadia Hall, the resident halls are the worst place to be. Good luck trying to find something to do on the weekends, the bus that's supposed to stop EVERY DAY at a certain time hardly shows up, and the Bangor Mall is shutting everything down one by one.
