Montgomery County Community College - Central Campus Reviews

Community colleges are always seen as less than from universities but comparing my experiences to other who do go to universities makes me realize how lucky I am to have started here. I have a great relationship with my adviser and professors. They all show enthusiasm in teaching and are willing to provide extra help if needed. Not only are the staff wonderful but so is the price. Montco offers affordable tuition for everyone so getting an education is possible and achievable. Being from a low income family this school has giving me every chance for not only help but extra curricular activity and free perks to be a student like having an accessible gym for exercise. The only thing I think would be a good idea for improving is having required appointments with advisers once a semester for questions to be answered, checking on grades, and also talking about college experience in general to see if the student needs anything.

The college itself is a great resource for individuals who are looking to further their education. This is my 2nd year as a full time student, and other than a few communications issues I'm happy with my choice. Finacially, there is little to no constraint. This year I will be working full-time while pursuing my studies full time. MC3 makes all of that possible with flexible course times, and online classes. Really, I have nothing negative to say about my current school!
My college is excellent, very helpful, caring and interesting. I am challenged here! Being able to come to college is a great feeling of independence, but staying in college and watching yourself grow is a much better feeling.
