I genuinely loved my experience at Quinsigamond Community College. The teachers are very passionate, and try to prove the 'community college' stigma wrong - and they do! I was at a state school in South Carolina where the courses were much easier than the courses here at QCC. I have made amazing connections not only with fellow students but with faculty and professors as well. The only thing I can complain about is the commute I have which is around 45 minutes. I live in a small central mass town so I do not have many options. I understand housing defeats the whole purpose of CC, but it would be very convenient! I will be sad yet happy to be graduating from QCC one day!

The admissions process could not have been easier. It took about a week and they gave me an acceptance packet, full of brochures with the campus services and departments and a checklist to guide me through the process. Academic advising is a well-run department with caring staff who listen to your goals and aspirations and pull together a cohesive plan for you to follow. I encourage students who are U.S. veterans to join the Veterans Affairs group and take advantage of their services. The financial aid department is a well-oiled machine and their FAFSA process was seamless. If you are looking to upgrade your skills, give QCC a chance, by obtaining a certificate in your chosen field. It is the perfect stepping stone towards achieving professional and academic goals.
The buildings and professors for STEM majors are wonderful! However one of the buildings should be torn down as it is always way too hot or cold than appears legal. If you class is anytime after 8am prepare to park all the way at the top of the hill. Got a new cafeteria which is a slight improvement. Finally have a starbucks on campus but the "baristas" are the older workers in the cafe and thus have no clue what they are making and if you order an iced coffee you better have 15min to kill.
