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.
The first thing I will say about Southern Maine Community College is that the professors care. All of them, I seldom had a professor who was just in it for a pay check. They all truly wanted to see me learn at whatever cost.

My biggest issue with this school is the lack of involvement from advisors and management, so to say. I felt very secluded and almost 'thrown to the wolves' while attending this school. If it weren't for my professors caring as much as they did, it would have been very hard to succeed.

The lack of involvement from honestly every level except professors truly made it hard to have any school spirit. I truly felt like I was just their to get a degree, not to enjoy my time.
