Southern Maine Community College Reviews
SMCC is a fantastic school. You pay very little tuition for very high quality education. Professors push their students academically, while also being understanding of the student’s life outside of the classroom. The campus is beautiful and serene being right by the ocean (the perfect place to do homework or take a breather). Personally I am a commuter, so I cannot comment on the housing, but from what I have heard from people who do live there, it is sub par. But, you do get what you pay for. I recommend SMCC to all my friends and family!
I have been going to SMCC for two years now and it is the most beautiful campus! It is a small campus with such amazing staff that will answer every question you have. In between classes I take a walk on the campus path that leads to the beach! Every professor I have had wants to see you succeed and will help in anyway possible. Such knowledgeable professors who love what they teach are the key to student success, and they have that here. I lived on campus my first year and the dorms were very small, although the bathroom facilities were very nice and up to date. The dining hall food is mediocre but there is also a cafe and Starbucks close by. Most of all the people are wonderful and the campus setting is even more spectacular!
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.
