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!
Over the past few years I have experimented with several other schools. Yet, I seem to keep coming back to FCC. The smaller class sizes allow for a more individualized learning experience. Due to the location of the school and its surroundings, it is ideal for almost every class. For example, I took an ecology class and the campus is close enough to local and state parks for us to be able to take field trips. This greatly helped me to gain a broader understanding of the subject matter. Also, there are many great resources nearby. For instance, the Monroe Center is where I am currently taking a Welding class and have enrolled for this upcoming semester to take the next level course. The Monroe center offers students an opportunity to gain real life experiences in the field of their choice. Some of these courses include culinary arts, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, welding, and nursing, just to name a few. The staff at FCC is always willing to lend a helping hand and guide each student in the right direction. Their professionalism and dedication to educating each student cannot be touched by other colleges. I would highly recommend FCC to anyone looking for an affordable and quality college!
