My experience with my professors and courses were great! All of my professors had great personalities and showed that they really cared about their students! They made teaching fun and interesting by incorporating/sharing real life experiences and interactive. Every professor has a different teaching style, but still made classes enjoyable. The class sizes are great in that their is a lot of intimacy. I built a lot of relationships with students and have maintained long-term friendships.

I've been to a few schools, and there is no experience like the one offered at Montgomery. I appreciate the smaller class sizes and the fact that the professors seem genuinely interested and invested in your success. They are always there and offering help outside of the classroom if needed.
I am in the Nursing program and it is truly like a family! You meet great people and really root for each other's successes.
Registration is easy and they offer people to help walk you through it in the admissions office. Within the Nursing program, registration can be aggravating due to the lack of freedom in course selection (more so in clinical options).
The curriculum is similar to that of a 4-year college, except you don't feel lost in a crowd and you're not paying those extravagant price tags.
The bonus is the transfer program. Once you finish your 2-year degree program, they have a consortium of schools guaranteed to accept you, including the University of Maryland.
Montgomery is truly amazing!

I have to say that I established great relationships with my professors! I stayed in touch with them because they really showed me that they cared about their students, that they cared about me. The curriculum offered was great; the courses provided in depth understanding of the material taught. The class registration process was very easy. There were no issues when registering. I was unaware of any study options and/or programs associated.
