4 College Junior

Facilities: What I have been told the "social scene" and other activities are plenty full. The fall semester hasn't started yet. I am taking a few classes during the summer semester. The Summer semester is pretty quiet, their isn't a full staff or full student enrollment. I'm sure when the Fall semester start's, campus life will become very busy and exciting.

Career Services: I haven't really had the need nor the chance to check out their career services. What I have seen and heard the service's that Mayland Community College, offer's is excellent.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I am a first time student so I didn't know what to expect. I was very nervous about starting classes, because I had been out of school for a very long time. From applying for school, getting registered, and everything else to get ready for the first day of classes, everything went like clockwork. Thanks to the staff, with their help I knew what to do and what to expect.

My first day of classes was very calming. I realized that it wasn't going to be as hard as I thought because my Instructor's would always be there to help me, if I needed it, and they would work with me to make everything flow smoothly. The staff at Mayland Community College, in Burnsville, N.C., are really the best in every way. I would recommend Mayland to anyone, young or old, as the school to go to. If your going as a full-time student after a degree or someone just wanting to learn something new, I would suggest for them to try Mayland Community College.

Student Body: In general, the location of Mayland Community College is in a region without much diversity in political agreements, religion, or other social matters, but Mayland has conjured up the most diverse group of people that the area has to offer. I have met people of several different religions and denominations, along with people of various sexual orientation, political and economic views. Hoever, Mayland does lack ethnic diversity. I believe that is because of the area.

Academic Experience: Because Mayland is a community college, there are no Bachelor's or Master's programs available that I know of, but Associate's programs and several varieties of certificates from cosmetology to Electronics Engineering. The professors that I personally had as instructors were very knowledgeable about the material. The workload was quite heavy throughout most of each semester, but it kept me interested and kept class topics in my head almost constantly. Many students that had transferred from large universities back to Mayland Community College informed me that the work load and difficulty of classes at Mayland by far outweighed the previous college they had attended. Mayland's professors and curriculum required much more of students than many other nearby state universities and colleges according to those transfer students.

Academic Experience: I graduated this morning from Mayland Community College in Spruce Pine, North Carolina. It is a community college, however, it is ranked in the top 1% in the nation. The Associate's in Arts degree I have just earned was broad enough to give me a range and sense of general arts and sciences studies without adding in unnecessary programs. The curriculum was well suited to the class "titles" and the Early College High School program gave me a wonderful and unique head start into my future as I also earned in four years a High School diploma while I earned the Associate's degree.

4 College Senior

Facilities: My school is a Community College so it offers basic classes. I am dual enrolled so I attend a couple classes at night through the week. The campus is set in a beautiful location. The campus is also tobacco free. It is clean and well kept.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer is generally always up to par. The computer labs are wonderful and provide many students with excellent service. The printer is great and quick so that you can print off assignments fast.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not yet graduated, so I am unaware as to how well the career center works. However, the job prospects for the career that I have chosen are wonderful. The health care field is growing rigorously each day.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love the fact that the school is small, therefore allowing professors to give me their full attention when I need it. I am able to contact my professors with no trouble whatsoever and get quick responses to my questions. Mayland is also highly known for their RN program, which is extremely important to me since that is my major. The only complaint I hold is the registering process. It is all done online and with internet problems, sometimes you cannot get the classes that you want or need.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a nursing major, and I absolutely love it. Mayland Community College nursing students are notoriously known for their academic success within hospitals and other health related work settings. It has been better than I could have imagined so far. My classes have fulfilled the "nursing knowledge" gaps. I love this field and it is my true passion. The workload for a nursing major is very intensive and difficult, but not overwhelming or impossible.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I would highly recommend taking online classes if you have a job, are in high school, or during the spring semester when there is a high possibility of snow. With online classes there is more time to turn in assignments, but on the down side, they are often more difficult because you don't have the instructor reminding you two or three times a week about assignments; if you don't remember the assignments you'll get a zero. If you have trouble remembering assignments and test, then I would recommend that you take traditional classes.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: There is a great amount of financial aid. It really helps lighten my stress load and helps me focus on what matters the most: my education.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Getting It Done – The online classes here is very cut and dry- get your work done and turn it in before the due date. Anything past the due date u fail... but there is a few good teachers here that will provide u more time if u need if if u just explain why it wasnt in on time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Pleased With My Decision – I am very pleased with my decision to go to Mayland Community College. I was considering going to a four year school, but by making this decision I have saved thousands of dollars and have quickly gotten into the program of my choice. The college has wonderful libraries and computer labs, along with teachers that are willing to assist you at any time. Mayland also rewards their students through catering several special events like Spring Fling.

Overall Experience: Great School at Which to Start! I love the personal attention students receive from faculty and staff. Students are always welcomed to ask questions when they need help and are truly valued as human beings. Students are also given many opportunities to get involved in the school's activities. Classes are challenging and interesting. I would definitely choose to go back to MCC.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: Not Impressed – Overall I was not very impressed with many of the students at this school. They acted like high schoolers...did not study...procrastinated...and complained about not being able to smoke on school grounds. They need to grow up!!!!
