The school is amazing on the budget, and even has dorms for those who want dorm-life at a community college. The admissions process is very simple- the school even gives college credit for AP exams, which got me a semester ahead in college! Now Allegany is a community college, so a lot of people are not super-social and only stay on the campus for classes, however, there are some clubs and organizations that you can join- and probably should if you want to meet people! Allegany is unique because it has some of the pros of a 4 year institute (Dorms, mutliple campuses, etc.), but it has the price of a community college. Not to mention, it is beautifully nestled in the mountains and is nearby all social activities in Cumberland, MD. Also, if you're really craving a good party, Frostburg University is only 15 minutes away.

As mentioned earlier, I believe there are a lot of classes that are unnecessary for my particular major. I don't think college algebra should be a required course for teaching early childhood. I believe it is wasting the instructors time and also the college students time, when they are required to take classes that are not beneficial to our major. For the most part I have had instructors that are great! Most of my education classes are wonderful teachers, and on the other hand I felt like some of the teachers that were not teaching specific education classes were not enjoying their time there and I get the feeling they don't enjoy teaching anymore.

It's what you expect from a community college. The staff for the most part is really qualified. In fact, some also teach at Frostburg Univeristy, which is only 15 minutes away. I'm studying political science, and while the school doesn't provide a whole lot of polisci courses, it does offer a few economics courses that are great to tie into your major. The workload isn't too heavy, of course it all depends on how you manage your time. Also, you have opportunities to take many classes online if you prefer that.

The campus isn't fancy with lots of new buildings, however, the campus is maintained, renovated, and pleasing to be on. More importantly though, it is surrounded by a lot of natural beauty of Appalachia.
