Over the past few years I have experimented with several other schools. Yet, I seem to keep coming back to FCC. The smaller class sizes allow for a more individualized learning experience. Due to the location of the school and its surroundings, it is ideal for almost every class. For example, I took an ecology class and the campus is close enough to local and state parks for us to be able to take field trips. This greatly helped me to gain a broader understanding of the subject matter. Also, there are many great resources nearby. For instance, the Monroe Center is where I am currently taking a Welding class and have enrolled for this upcoming semester to take the next level course. The Monroe center offers students an opportunity to gain real life experiences in the field of their choice. Some of these courses include culinary arts, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, welding, and nursing, just to name a few. The staff at FCC is always willing to lend a helping hand and guide each student in the right direction. Their professionalism and dedication to educating each student cannot be touched by other colleges. I would highly recommend FCC to anyone looking for an affordable and quality college!

When I tell people I am taking a welding course, I almost always get funny looks. Being the only female welder in a shop overflowing with testosterone can be trying at times. However, I am very thankful for the push and drive it has given me to be just as good a welder if not better. The intro to welding course allows its students to take an exam at the end of the semester. This exam decides whether or not you become a certified 2G welder, which can directly lead to a career opportunity. The curriculum strictly covered what we learned in class and the workload was evenly spread out. The facility is an excellent learning environment! The shop is equipped with well running, up to date machinery to make welding as "real world" as possible, all while remaining a safe learning environment. The staff are dedicated to helping each student discover their strengths and improve their weaknesses, as well as to provide as much information as possible about new job opportunities.

I am receiving an education that is more than worth the tuition that I paid. I did not expect to gain such memorable and positive experiences at FCC, and I was able to pay off all my tuition and expenses so far! The Financial Aid office could have more attendants assisting with people because the wait time has usually been for a little while. One tip for getting financial aid at FCC is to always check for scholarship opportunities, whether they are posted on the website or anywhere on campus, because there is money that is waiting to be awarded to students. All students have to do is look for them and apply.
