Southern Maine Community College Reviews
SMCC is the best bang for the buck. So much so that this is my second time attending in 10 years- on a different career path. The campus is beautiful, located in the metro area of Portland/South Portland and hosts a beautiful beach and lighthouse. Bus service is available multiple times a day and the dining is excellent! Student to teacher ratio is small and teachers are passionate about what they teach. Student services are excellent, knowledgeable, helpful and FAST! The day I considered enrolling, all of what I needed was available online as well as by phone support. I was fully enrolled within a few days and had everything I needed for information. Information learned is rich and all programs are great stepping stones for whatever path you choose to pursue! Pricing really is a huge factor and I am saving HUGE amounts of money at SMCC before transferring to a 4 year university - over $60,000 actually. Highly recommend this school.
SMCC has the most beautiful campus imaginable! On top of being able to step out onto the beach between classes, they provide a wide range of educational opportunities all year round. They have flexible scheduling for part and full time students, and teachers more than willing to go out of their way to ensure your success.
SMCC's South Portland Campus has a beautiful view of Casco Bay. The Adjunct Instructors for the most part are better than the professors who have tenure. The Adjunct Instructors teach you in ways that actually apply to real life and are not afraid to think "out of the box". Their valuable experience in the "work force" is extremely beneficial to students. Their Brunswick Campus has much better parking lots and being a fairly new campus is very nice. I just wish there were more instructors that would commute to this campus for the Health Science programs. The labs are state of the art, the different mannequins are amazing and the overall college environment is better for learning at the Brunswick campus.
