Online Courses: I haven't done an online class as of yet, but will be doing my first online class this semester.

Overall Experience: My experience for the most part has been ok. I have met a few great instructors.

Overall Experience: I attend a pretty good college. However, I would like it if there were more instructors who won't say things that make you feel like you are not doing good enough, and makes you feel like an idiot if asking a question.

Academic Flexibility: CMCC is only about 30 minutes away from my home and this has been very convenient for me. Classes are offered at a varying amount of times throughout the day and week and it has been easy for me to schedule classes to fit my needs and my degree needs. I've transferred credits from SMCC to CMCC and the process was very easy. When one class didn't automatically transfer over I spoke to my adviser and he got admissions to accept the class and it was one less class that I had to retake.

Online Courses: I love online courses for the fact that the class is done at my convenience. Online courses have made it easier to complete my degree because I have worked full time while attending college. The teachers are great when it comes to answering questions in a timely manner and also with grading homework that was due. Communication with peers is a lot easier in an online setting because people aren't so self conscious about what they say or do because we will probably never meet in real life. The learning experience I have had with online courses outweighs the classroom 9/10 times.

Career Services: There is an Alumni network at CMCC and they definitely encourage all of their students to pursue higher education after completing a certificate or associates degree program at this school. Advisers are there to help answer questions about transferring and trying to figure out your next step for your future.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses offered here are your typical classes for your degree but teachers go beyond that. They show interest in your progress and how you are doing as a student and put in a lot of effort to make sure you understand the material. Classes are small for the most part and this is great because there is more one on one time to get questions answered.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are job opportunities available for students to help expenses of school and they also offer internships when you are getting close to finishing your degree. Advisers are very helpful when it comes to trying to find jobs and also scheduling your courses for each semester.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am in the Business Administration and Management program at CMCC. There are a lot of electives to take toward your degree and they also transfer to many 4 year colleges. The amount of electives offered by CM makes going to school fun because you have a diverse load of classes to take. Some classes are very fun while others are quite boring and it's nice to be able to have a large selection so that you have the chance to schedule fun classes in each semester on top of other classes that may not be so easy or you may struggle in. The business Capstone class offered at our school was awesome and really made us open our eyes to what it's like to run your own business.

Overall Experience: Going to Central Maine Community College has been great for me financially. The classes offered there are just as good if not better than a 4 year college because class sizes are smaller and you have an opportunity to learn more. The teachers really have an interest in your success and want to see you do well. The campus is in a great location and sits right on Lake Auburn. It's very pretty here and there are a lot of great places outside you can sit and study.

Academic Flexibility: You can transfer most to all credits when your transfer to any University of Maine System College, some other private colleges have deals with the school. Flexibility of courses is a hit or miss, some computer tech courses are offered at night one semester then during the day the next semester. It can make it hard if you want to be a full time student and work full time plus have a little free time.

Academic Experience: Discussed in previous review section

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Central Maine Community College is a standard community college.

>Tuition is low for in state students, books can be pricey, get them as early as possible or buy online/used. If you take 4 classes (excluding lecture/lab classes) depending on the class, the cost of books can cost what your spending on the cost of the classes themselves.

> Dining Hall is decent size, it does need more variety in choices for food, some things are offered on certain days at certain times.

> Internet can be a hit or miss in some class rooms, speeds vary. It can effect courses that require the internet for downloading software.

> Professors - most are adjunts that don't have an office on campus, each has a different teaching style, haven't had a bad professor yet.

> It is a smoke free campus now

> Computer Technology - School needs to spend money on updating the program, MS exchange as of this semester is having issues, we are now in April and still downloading software, haven't even done anything constructive. Mostly due to slow internet speeds, and the one server in the class being really slow and sometimes not working correctly.

> PC Repair class - Professor is awesome but given that its a 4 hour course and you spend alot of time looking at a power point going over whats in the book and sometimes not doing any hands on work on computers, hardware seems outdated.

> Campus housing - Have not experienced it but be sure to talk to people that live on campus.

> not a real variety of science courses, given the location they could benefit with some more science degrees. Life Sciences is the only science focused program, after that it's Chemistry and Biology courses.

Overall talk with Students and Staff to get a feel of the college, don't take all opinions without a grain of salt including this one. Take a tour and gather information. Good Luck!!!!!

Academic Flexibility: Most classes are split between Monday and Wednesday, and Tuesday and Thursday, Having hour and half in class time per day. Few classes are available on Friday and Saturday.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: They seem to have more in depth assignments and discussions in the forum than in class courses. But if you need to do these for your scheduling. I recommend them. Just keep an eye on when assignments are due.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The transfer services, Liz is amazing. She has a lot of information that you may need on what s transferable to different colleges. She also is willing to help you find the next college to best fit your career plan.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have done online, hybrid, and classroom courses. I recommend as many in class courses as you can. You get more one on one time if you need help and can ask any questions right than and there.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Learning and Writing center are a huge help. The hours they are available can work with many schedules. I recommend taking advantage of these services even if you feel you do not need them. They can help improve your work even more.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Business Program: With every 3 hours a week of in class time, expect to have 4 - 6 hours of homework or study time on top of it. You will need to follow this or come exams you will feel lost. I recommend taking as many of your classes that you can with, Mr. Doak, Mr. Bouttenot and Mr. Henry. They go above and beyond to make sure you succeed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers within the Business Department are always willing to help if you have any questions. They have office hours for you to seek help, but I have not met one that wont make themselves available if you need them to. Even if the issue you are having is not school related. The teachers really do make you feel like they want you to succeed.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I believe online is more layed out and is there to explain it all rather than class where the professor only explains some and leaves out the parts where he or she thinks it common sense to know, when really it's not sometimes.

Overall Experience: Go for a year or two and run. They will try to trap you and keep you here forever. Take advantage of the cheap classes, don't stay on campus and don't expect the administration to help you. They are the worst. Especially Betsy LIbby who is dean of achidemic affairs. I've gone to her for help on multiple occasions, and let me say I have never dealt with such a level of unprofessionalism. They will not help you! Terrible. I gave it one extra star because I've had a couple meaningful professors. But it's basically highschool round 2.
