Eastern Maine Community College Reviews
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.
The reason I choose Surgical Technology at Eastern Maine Community College is because it’s close to my home and community, its affordability and also provides outstanding education with a small class size. This program will continue to strengthen my skills, abilities, qualifications and assertiveness in high stress environments, and I can remain caring for patients in a well-balanced and thinking manner.
Great school!! Classes are small and the teacher's do all they can to help students succeed. There is a very diverse student ethnicity, giving more opportunity to learn how other countries handle education and just what's is different between where they are from to the United States. Great for people who want to return to school after a long absence. The faculty really helps each student with thier own specific needs to make rreturning very easy and a smooth transition.
