Montgomery County Community College - Central Campus Reviews

506 reviews
All Categories
The college is very affordable, especially if you live in Montgomery County. Class schedules are flexible; there are daytime, nighttime, and online courses to fit your busy life. The campus looks great, it feels more like a university campus than a community college campus. The facilities, cafes, gym, and bookstore are nice. There are over 30 different clubs and organizations on campus. There are clubs for table-top gaming, chess, ceramics, code, etc. This school has two subreddits, MCCC_bluebell and MCCCtechMajors, on reddit that I know of. Parking isn't bad, obviously it harder to find parking close to the Advanced Technology Center building. The teachers have been a hit or miss for me. I find it's easier to get better teachers for English, Public Speaking, or Theatre courses than it is for Science or Technology courses. Look up your teachers on ratemyprofessor, most of the time the reviews are fair. Don't just look at the ratings, listen to what's actually being said about them.

I really enjoy how small and friendly it is here at Montgomery County Community College. I have taken some classes on campus, and now I take classes online which helps with life outside of college. All the advisors and professors are there to help and talk if needed. This college is a great place to start!
Montgomery County Comm. College has very understanding and helpful professors. Never before have I been able to express questions or concerns in such a comfortable setting. The professors are very much involved and take much time out of their day to help with assignments. As someone who takes online classes as well, the speed and full bodied assistance that I get simply through emails and phone calls is phenomenal. In turn, I always feel prepared for assignments, projects, essays and midterms/finals.
I've also received a lot of assistance financially through this college as well as a lot of help from professors in terms of affording textbooks. By this, I mean I have saved a lot by their help in providing the textbook or the cheapest option for the textbook that they have found prior to class starting. This allows me to spend less time anxiously looking for expensive textbooks and more time studying and preparing ahead of time to get the best grades I can.
