4 College Freshman

Student Body: There are a lot of different kinds of people at my school, lots of different religions like Wicca and Islam, and people are really accepting and not quick to judge which is awesome. It seems that anyone can go up to anyone and have a friendly conversation which is something I feel others don't have. Everyone is really supportive of everyone else and people don't get offended about things, they just laugh it off.

Overall Experience: Honestly, CMC was my backup school. Originally I did not want to go to school here because I wanted to go to a big, fancy university. My senior year in high school I didn't get accepted anywhere so I decided to stick around and go to CMC. I cried about it because all my friends had gotten what they wanted and some had done worse in school than me. I came to realize that this was actually the best thing for me, though. I don't think CMC is as hard as a university but at the same time it is because just talking with my friends, I am doing a lot harder work, with all the essays and projects. This has been a good transitional school before I transfer because I got to come home every night and sleep in my own bed while also getting a feel for what college life is all about.

Facilities: The social scene is really divided into skiers and non-skiers but that doesn't mean we don't all get along. Everyone is really nice and come together to play a game of soccer where there are no hard feelings at the end.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: This is actually the part that bugs me the most about CMC. The flexibility is great but when filled out my transcript request form I thought that was all I had to do and everything would go smoothly. However, after about a month I received emails from the schools I applied to transfer to saying that they had not received my transcripts. It took me about another month to track down the right person to complain to!!! I was more than frustrated, I was irate. Even my family was angry because the late documents could mean that I don't get accepted due to my files not being complete on time. Also the school is not set up to send any of these documents electronically so I also had to wait for snail mail to get my documents to my schools.

Academic Experience: CMC is a small community college so I don't expect all that many majors, it does have a lot of cool, interesting courses and the teachers are awesome. The work load can be a little much at times but that is normal I think, but other than that it is manageable. I personally have not looked into job opportunities but I have heard with all of the science teachers there are some great opportunities for research jobs and others of the like.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am really happy that I went to CMC because the professors are amazing. They all know what they are talking about and seem to have fun teaching the subjects which makes class fun to have. The class sizes are small which allows for us to collaborate more and really get into what we are learning.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I go to the library all the time, it has a lot of great resources and the librarians are awesome. We actually just got a new building up at CMC and it is really nice, very modern with a café which is nice to have when the cafeteria isn't open. The gym is really well equipped but it could use some more equipment but it is a small room so more couldn't fit. There are also a lot of activities to do, every Wednesday there is something fun going on like a pool party or bowling night which, I think, is a really nice midweek break from all the studying and work.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Having the computer lab to go to when I need to print something is great, mainly because I personally don't have a printer and having one accessible is a life saver. There are a lot of computers in the lab, so I have never had to wait for one to open up. The wireless is sometimes iffy though, sometimes it works great and fast and other times it is a complete disappointment, especially when I need to look up an assignment. It is also really nice that the teachers can post important documents and helpful tips on our local network called Canvas, and there is also a calendar where we can put in assignments that are due and whatever our teachers put up on the calendar also shows up.

College Freshman

Career Services: I have not personally used any of these services so I can not give a review of them.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did not apply for any financial aid but the tuition is good

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm so happy and proud of myself for making this decision. I not only could get my pre-requisite classes out of the way with low tuition/costs, but I got a full-ride and I'm still debt free with my Associates of Arts degree! And I even got to emphasize my associates degree with the field I want to pursue which is Business. CMC is helpful, supportive and truly cares for your future. It's easy to want to leave to a huge university your first year of college but its better to think of your future and get the easy and basic classes out of the way (for lower costs) and then spread your wings and venture out. CMC is low in costs, feels like a true "community college" and its resources are good for the most part. If you seek help, you will find it.

Career Services: Career Center - never heard of.

Alumni Network - never heard of.

Job Prospects - your kinda on your own to find a job after graduation. They definitely dont hold your hand and try to get one for you. Maybe if you go through a program but its not for anyone and everyone. I dont think?

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credits was so great!! Almost everything transferred to me, which is so awesome. Once you get down to your finals classes, its harder to schedule around the schedule YOU want - but I think that is something everyone deals with in any school. The only frustration I dealt with was when I wasn't understanding how the teacher taught or if I wasn't understanding the subject matter (especially math!)

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I LOVE MY MAJOR! I'm going for my AA, business (graduate in May!) and the pre-req classes were good and simple. It was just math, science, writing and these are the classes where you can meet people. Once I got into my business classes, it was more in depth. Some classes were hard (Accounting) and others I loved (Business Law). We had no internships which is probably something we could work on and there weren't any job opportunities.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: CMC is great about registration processes and making students aware of deadlines, sign-ups and all of that. There is a newspaper that all students can look at that contain all the upcoming classes. It's so helpful!

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Library is awesome - except it's up a huge mountain and I'm usually never able to get there. It has great resources but the location is horrible. I wish it was more centralized with the locations. Campus activities aren't really "known." Student center is good.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Computers are great at CMC!! Printing is flexible, computers are usually always available for students. The internet is fast and up to speed. Wireless access is good - although I usually don't use it.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I'm not too familiar with student body.... so I'm not sure how helpful my comments are. I've been at CMC for quite some time and haven't really been aware of any of this. Diversity is huge here! I feel like its mainly anglos and hispanics - i love it. It really does have a diverse classroom. That just means there's more ethnicity groups, which is always good in my opinion.

3 College Senior

Facilities: There is always room for improvement. CMC really should focus on athletic/recreation area, dining and work study areas. There aren't any programs either or social scenes. That's what I wish it had - more of an ACTUAL college feel.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Im not an online learner so I'm sort of biased. The classes I've taken at CMC, however, were good. It's hard to really have that 'connection' when it isn't face to face. But the teachers were still prompt and lead students to success to the best of their ability.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Colorado Mountain College is really great about tuition and financial aid! Since its a community college, it really supports first-time and continuing students for a better future. Scholarships are great here, you have to only submit one application/essay/letters and it ALL applies to every scholarship matched up with you. I got a full ride at CMC which was so great, so I didn't have to pay anything for my first two years of college. If you apply, you usually always get at least something! Maybe not something huge but something. CMC's financial aid offices were helpful. If you can't reach them right away - you leave them a VM and they are sure to get back to you. I had it so great here! Everyone is wonderful and supportive. I'm ready to spread my wings and see what's out there now.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very cheep, good use of money. The people who are in charge of financial aid are the most pointless and useless individuals in the world.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Okay partys, okay class room discussions. most of us are just at the school to ski.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: if I could do it all over again I still would choose CMC. the first time was meeting the lovely administration. They were so kind in giving me the certain steps to assure me that I was doing everything right. it took me a while to get the hang of things when it came to financial aid and taxes but they are always willing to help

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: We tend to blend together no matter what major you are you kind of become all in the same fight to pursue our education and we always boost eachother to keep moving forward
