The student body at Calhoun Community College is very diverse. When I started taking class from Calhoun, I was quite nervous. I worried every one in my classes would be in their twenties, and I would be the young outcast. My assumption was completely wrong though! My classes had every variation of person, which was such a relief. There were young students, students with families, students with grandchildren, students with multiple jobs, students with goals, and some students even had a career but wanted to go back to school. The diversity of Calhoun is amazing. All of the students are different, but all come together during class time and some even become friends outside of class. Personally, I have made quite a few friends since I have taken classes from Calhoun. Calhoun student always seem to have something to offer. They help with class work, personal issues, and even make class more fun!

Largest Community College in Alabama – It is very obvious that CCC is the largest community college in Alabama, because it has a very diverse student population. The day classes are not just filled with young people fresh out of high school, middle aged people actually make up a very large percentage of every class I have been in over the past four semesters. The night classes are also very balanced with recent high school graduates and older students as well. Every color is represented and many nationalities are traceable as well. I believe this diversity is what allows Calhoun to be the great college that it is. The teachers are spectacular too. Very interested and invested in their students success. Though their &quot;graduation&quot; rate is not very high, it is not because of students dropping out; it is actually because many students opt to go directly to a four year institution before they obtain a two year degree. It is a great school!

Make Contact – Calhoun Community College is a an extremely cheap school that is also certified because of its price, it doesn't dish out ALOT of money, but it does still offer scholarship opportunities and the typical Pell Grant will cover your tuition. It is best, however, to make contact with the Finicial Aid advisors to recieve the best help on filling out paperwork and what exactly is all needed from YOU. Calhoun will not sit around and do the work for you. They hold you responsible for checking on missing documents or award letters. It's pretty easy, just go up there and someone will be happy to help you!
