Mount Wachusett is an amazing school. The class sizes are perfect and they have plenty of degree options. This is a perfect school for someone who is unsure of what they want to do with their future. They are extremely helpful and I have yet to run into a professor that seems like they do not care. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved with clubs and organizations as well. All in all, I would suggest the mount to anyone who is considering community college or college in general. My experience here so far has been nothing but pleasant.

I left, I couldn’t do it anymore. Financial Aid is useless. They do not return calls; the two people at the front desk don’t seem to know anything about financial aid. All they say is wait till you’re awarded. The one and only staff I use to go to for help they let leave in financial aid.

My biggest complaint is the lack of knowledge most staff have. If you have a question they will send you to other offices; before you know it your back where you started with no answer to your question. You can also walk down the hall and hear employees talking bad about students. Just not the place for me, going to Fitchburg State this FALL, hope everyone has a better experience than me.
Online courses are easy to access, assignments can be completed any time within fair deadlines. If you procrastinate, completing a course may be a challenge, so don't fall behind!
