I had a great experience at Kennebec Valley Community College! I like the small class sizes, teacher interaction, flexibility (they offer many online class options), competitive tuition rates ($92 per credit hour), and broad scope of class offerings. I am in my second year of studying Business Administration: Marketing/Management, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend!

KVCC is a great school, they have an excellent nursing program. They also have an astounding cafe! Most of the food is locally sourced, which is something you don't find often. In addition, they substantial food closet for those who are in need. The only thing that I feel is a challenge is sorting out financial aid, as sometimes payments are delayed.
I've only completed my first semester, but I've enjoyed it! It's not fancy, but for the cost it seems like a very good college.
