Beautiful campus and a great community college. The small campus is easy to maneuver around, a close-knit overall feel between students and staff. The best part is it's an affordable education without the staggering price tag. After your two-year degree so easy to transfer your credits and yourself to a higher education and degree. This school is so worth looking into, you'll be so glad you did!
Review Southern Maine Community College
I love the professors. This campus is in a beautiful area with a diverse group of friendly people! I do not recommend living in dorms. It's overpriced, way too strict, and just overall not worth your time nor money. The elevator in the dorm hall is gross and because of this, no one gets their security deposite back. Not fair because not everyone contributed to it.
MORE Classes need to be offered at their Satellite Locations. IF THEY ADVERTISED it better, they would get more students from as far away as Fryeburg and parts of Oxford County as well as more students who live in the Lakes Region area of Maine attending these locations for classes instead of looking at other schools that do. All of the satellite locations indicate the same thing--that SMCC and CMCC do not talk to each other as far as what they're offering for classes and how many students would be willing to travel to a satellite location for these classes. The instructors at SMCC's "Off Campus- Satellite Locations" are excellent.
