I had a fantastic learning experience at FCC. The class sizes are perfect, the quality of educators is great, and everyone is a lot more motivated here! Only cons: The campus could use some updating, and there aren't many options for taking a course at a different time (upper levels are often offered only at 1 or 2 times)

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.
Frederick Community College is a great place to start for anyone wanting to major in an associates degree in the given programs that FCC provides, and for any students that are still figuring out what they want to major in. I chose FCC because I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and the opportunities and the positive environment filled with experienced individuals really aided me in choosing a career path that I love. The teachers are more than helpful, and the best part is that they really do treat you like an adult to prepare you for adulthood.
