Mount Wachusett Community College Reviews
Excellent school to start your journey. Helps you find out what you want to do, redirects you if you decide it isn't what you wanted. Good staff who stand behind you and help you on your way. It's a good community college for specific programs. There are no waiting lists as with other schools but the programs can be harder to get in. This means that the top students get in to the programs which means you must do your best. Prices are decent in comparison. While program specific classes can be higher they are competitive to other schools. The mount also has a cool program with Fitchburg state to allow you to go directly for your bachelors after acquiring your associates.
The Mount became my second home. I made tons of friends, and from my experience there, almost everyone is friendly and helpful. You will never feel overwhelmed by the campus, the people, or the professors, because the Mount offers a welcoming and easy going environment and atmosphere. Most professors will be easy to work and get a long with, most are also accessible. The financial aid department will also help you with anything to do with the finances part of college. Overall, really amazing and affordable college.
Mount Wachusett Community College professors, staff and faculty really root for their students and aid in their success. This school was such a blessing and incredible introduction to college at a fraction of the cost. There is a strong sense of community and you really get to know everyone on campus. Incredibly flexible class options between the different campuses classes offered and online courses.
