4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I've been able to find a lot of classes that fit around my schedule, there are only a select few that have and do not.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't yet taken the online courses, but I have heard from friends that they have had good experiences with them. I plan on taking them myself this summer.

4 College Junior

Career Services: A lot of the classes have credits that are easily transferable to other colleges. You just want to check to make sure beforehand.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses are great, sometimes the starter courses didn't feel like starter courses but the teachers are willing to work with you in order to get you up to date with the rest of the class.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are work studies offered to students so they can stay close to campus to make money and also work to create a better future for themselves in their classes.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everyone is super friendly and the teachers are incredibly helpful. If you have any issues, they're more than likely to help you with whatever you need.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers and staff is friendly, the food is good, and it can only go up from here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: For a community college it's honestly great. There's a stereotype about community colleges and how it's filled with people who aren't really sure of what to do with an education. But community college is the exact opposite; especially at SMCC. People are putting an effort to go back to school or making a smart, money saving decision to start off their education with a low tuition but highly focused on the individual school. It's a small environment so there's more focus for each student and it makes everyone friendly because you see the a couple of the same places around but there's comforting diversity. The facilities and the buildings aren't new but they are in great condition and being on the beach its the most beautiful campus.

Overall Experience: Because I'm only a freshman I haven't really set out to experience the recruiting but from the recurring emails of business and schools coming to visit, the faculty at SMCC really do put effort into offering opportunities.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm in the communications program with a focus on new media and the classes that are more focused on my major don't even feel like classes. I'm learning a lot but at the same time I'm enjoying it so it doesn't feel like a class.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Honestly a lot of people feel like going to community college is frowned upon. Honestly, I feel like any college education experience would make you feel good and going to SMCC makes me feel good. It's super affordable and because the class sizes aren't too big the professors can focus on you as an individual easier. Don't be ashamed of community college; it's a smart and committed plan.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Unfortunately many of my previously acquired credits did not transfer, however that was partially self fault. When I was 18 and did not care as much the university I was attending liked to say "C's get degrees", however they do not usually transfer. Aside from that slight let down in the application process though everything was quite easy and people quite helpful.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: As a "non-traditional" student, I knew I was much more interested in the idea of online learning rather than trying to work the rest of my life around my education. Working two to three jobs at any given time as well as being 22 and trying to enjoy to youth and social life I needed to find a way to work my education into my already busy schedule rather than try and change everything else around. Online classes allow just that. While there are some time constraints and the occasional assignment requiring you to be logged on at a certain time, for the most part it allows the individual to have that extra flexibility with their busy lives and education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a community college class sizes are smaller, class styles seem to be more hands on, and professors seem to have a more individualized interest in their students; all these things are a major plus for me. Coming from a small town finding a community that emulates a lot of those similar traits is very comforting and helpful, personally, in my education.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Currently, I am undecided after taking my first college class after an almost three year break. This is my first stepping stone, and only option. I hope to finish my associates degree with no more debt accumulated in order to move onto the next step in my education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At first, online education seemed intimidating. However, the experience so far has been great! The faculty are easily reachable by email and helpful in quick responses.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Jeremy Dill in the Advising Department is top notch. He assisted me when I was not having any luck registering for my courses for the first semester. After sitting in a mandatory orientation meeting earlier in May of 2015, I had to ask to see a "seasoned advisor" as the others that were present at the Orientation Meeting did not seem to be very interested or as knowledgeable as he was.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Two of my courses that I took through SMCC were online. I enjoyed not having to sit in a class room during specific times and I liked the flexibility of managing my own schedule in order to get the assignments completed and uploaded.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sociology instructor was very passionate about his profession as he is also a counselor. He has a deep sense of concern for those less fortunate than others as well as for those who suffer with drug addiction.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't heard about how successful or unsuccessful that this department may be as far as job/internship prospects or even been to the career center. It seems like you don't actually get to study the "meat of your degree" until you are in the second year of the program. Because of the delay in learning the courses that actually have to do with the degree program, there doesn't seem to be any need to go to the career center at this point.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The admissions department is not very forthcoming with letting you know if you can test out of some classes that they feel are required in the first year. I have an Associate's Degree from 1986 and because it was from Andover College (now Kaplan) they only gave me credit for one class. I have also just completed an online EKG Technician course that consisted of 50 hours and upon taking the test for the State of Maine, will allow me to obtain employment doing EKG's. I am in the Pre-Radiography program and am hoping to be able to do sonograms, ultrasounds, etc. I also got my CPR Certification in August. With the EKG Technician course that I have just completed, I feel that I should get credit for this class. I want to be a well-rounded Radiology Technician and work in the Quick Care Clinics that are now providing Radiology Services in their locations.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My psychology instructor was great! She is one of the adjunct teachers and is also a psychologist. She understands how the real world works, not just book smarts. My online English teacher is also great! She is one of the adjunct teachers and is also a writer.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Professors work with the student, so they get all the info they need.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: The offices try really hard to help all students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many of the students are friendly and want to help.
