College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: since I already have a B.A., I cannot apply for financial aid.

Online Courses: I love math classes online. I've always second guessed myself with math problem answers. With math online I can quickly search how-to videos to help me reassure my math skills.

Career Services: My biotechnology professors have numerous contacts and places to get certified where I can get my foot in the door.

Academic Flexibility: The classes are flexible most of the major needed courses are available at multiple times a day and at night. Transferring credits was a breeze.

Academic Experience: Biotechnology is a vastly growing research area. While in my major I have learned several necessities in the scientific life such as microbiology ways to aseptically grow and isolate bacteria cells. Cell culture techniques in the cell culture facility to grow and maintain cell lines. We have worked with Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells, stem cells, and currently working with Hybridoma cells to extract monoclonal antibodies, which are used in cancer therapy. Biotechnology has it's own floor in the Biotechnology & Health Building. Our classrooms have access to chemicals, laminar flow hoods, incubators, bioreactors, several chromotography units, spectrophotometers, microscopes, etc. Being a biotechnology major I can go into a variety of careers which is extremely helpful. Honestly I'd enjoy becoming a squint in a lab.

Academic Experience: Professors are helpful with any questions you have. They have explained, answered, shown descriptive videos, played trivia to help students memorize things. It's just wonderful.

Facilities: The most unique part of ACC is the environment of the entire school. The horticulture majors plant flowers and vegetable gardens, automotive majors fix cars for free, culinary majors offer delicious meals, biotechnology majors grow cells for businesses and other schools, the nursing majors help with blood drives. We all pitch in to make ACC an amazing school.

Student Body: There are no major cliques I've noticed. It's obvious if your a nurse you will hang out with fellow nurses at school but I've enjoyed seeing students still stay friends with other students they had one class with a few semesters back. I myself still smile and wave to fellow students and professors I've interacted with a few semesters back. It's a peaceful school where every seems to get along.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school. If I had started at ACC instead of the other local community college I would have graduated in the expected two year biotechnology program. The professors are incredible and brilliant. The experience is exactly what I wanted for "The college experience" because I'm not the party type and I don't want to be far from home.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is reasonable and financial aid is made super easy since the school is willing to help with anything students need. They send emails with scholarships and let you know to reapply for FASFA. They really work hard to help students a believe their goals in life.

Campus Resources: Everyone at Alamance Community College is willing to go out of their way to help with anything I need. The admissions office is always a group of smiling and giggling women. The student centers are always filled with a variety of students either hanging out until their next class, doing homework, or eating lunch. ACC has creative student activities such as plant sales from the horticulture majors, blood drives, book sales, etc. My favorite is the search game the bookstore plays. Students go around the school and find everything on their search list and whoever gets the most wins a gift card to the bookstore to help purchase textbooks, lab coats, all the necessities. My college is amazing, simply put.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The snack bar is open each morning. But, its summer. Who wants to hang out on campus during the summer?

I'd like to see a fitness trail loop the campus. Its a good way to kill time between classes.

Student Body: Since I am currently attending a community college, there are a lot of different types of people, of different races/ethnicities, who speak many languages, and come from very diverse backgrounds. I think that among some students, there is a feeling of ethnocentricity, and therefore have a tendency to look down on others who are different from them. I think that this is very sad, because, having been on the other side of such discrimination more times than I'd care to say, I understand what a toll it can take on a person. I wish that people would recognize the potential outcome of their actions, and think twice before they did them, so as to avoid hurting someone else. However, I will say that, as a general rule, there is quite a bit of interaction and socialization within, if not between, people involved in clubs/groups. I do not feel as though the "discrimination" is bad, or even severe enough to be classified as such, but it is a trend that I have noticed.

Also, again since I am attending a community college and predominately taking evening classes, a majority of the students are adults with established careers (they may work during the day and take classes at night). These people are typically more dedicated and committed to their academic life than are students who are, say, fresh out off high school.

Overall, I do think that I see a lot more diversity and people from all walks of life at my college than one might see at a university. It has taught me to accept people for who they are, and made me realize that most of them are there for the same reason as I: to get an education for future career advancement.
