I love FCC! It is a great school. The professors are very invested and willing to help. They want to see you succeed and are often available to help you. The campus is situated right outside of Frederick, it is a little difficult to get to the mall because of 15 but there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance or a short drive if you don't want to eat on campus. There is no housing on campus because it is a community college but there are often apartments or houses for rent nearby. The campus is small but has a lot to it. There are also always activities for students to attend and plenty of clubs and organizations to be a part of. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a quality education with a desire to get to know people.

Attending FCC been a great experience so far. I have found a new love passion for education. So far the only negative experience I have had is an absolutely terrible teacher. She was brand new, and I assume resources were low to have hired a teacher like this. I am half way through my second semester the and I am loving it. The awful professor was replaced and I find my self enjoy going to class more and more. The campus is quite small, and this makes navigating it quite easy. The students are all eager to learn and the staff(with the one exception are more than happy to help. All of my professors have been outstanding so far and I am glad to be spending another year there!
Overall, my experience at Frederick Community College has been very pleasant. They offer a lot of different classes and have recently added a cybersecurity degree program. Their classes are very affordable and they work with their students to make sure they are saving money wherever they can. It is a very diverse school with many different ethnic groups supported in classes and clubs throughout the college. It offers many different athletic teams that are very competitive against other schools within the conference. There is not a lot of nightlife on the campus itself, but a lot going on off campus. The professors will go out of their way to help you, and as long as you email them they will come in even when they don't have scheduled office hours. There is no housing as most of the students are members of the community. The local area in general is very diverse and overall a great place to live. The campus food is very good but a little pricey.
