Mount Wachusett Community College Reviews
My experience at Mount Wachusett Community College helped me grow as an individual. As a child in middle and high school, I really wasn't sure if college was right for me. I had moved a lot in my life from different homes and dealt with a lot of anxiety. I didn't care about school. In my final few months of high school, I realized the only way for me to make it in my life was to attend college. Originally, I choose Westfield State University. During the summer, my anxiety came back and took a major toll on me. That is when I decided on going to community college and attending Mount Wachusett. Choosing Mount Wachusett was the best move I made. The programs and the support Mount Wachusett gave me were amazing. The professors helped me understand the material and helped me succeed. They were there for me every step of my journey. Without Mount Watchusett, I can guarantee you that I would be another college dropout somewhere in the streets. Instead, I am ready for a chapter in my life!
So far, I love my experience with Mount Wachusett Community College. The staff has been incredibly helpful throughout my application and registration process. I cannot wait to continue my education!
The Mount is a great community college that helps you prepare to transfer to a 4-year college. I loved the smaller classrooms and community at the Mount where I could make friends, study with nearly the whole class, and spend time with professors getting advice on assignments and overall progress. The courses are challenging like that of a 4-year university so you can transfer credits for your courses and with comparative knowledge of the subject. The professors here want you to succeed and will give you every opportunity to improve yourself. Staff are friendly and will help in any way they can. I personally feel the Mount is a great place where students are encouraged to succeed and help you work towards your goals.
