4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was originally planning on going to UNE but it was far too expensive, and in my mind, not totally worth the cost. SMCC was a much cheaper option with just as nice a campus. The dorm options are scarce and you're only guaranteed housing if you apply super early. Though I applied mid-July and was still given a dorm. Class registration is easy and flexible and the people are fairly nice.

Overall Experience: I haven't started classes yet, but the campus is nice. The co ed dorms are better than expected.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Considering SMCC is a community college, it has some wonderful attributes. There is a beach right on campus, the faculty is knowledgeable and helpful, and the price is very affordable. I would recommended SMCC to any prospective student.

Academic Experience: I rate this as okay because I do not have a great deal of experience with the topic.

Class registration was ideal: simple. As SMCC is a community college, they have a lot of transfer arrangements with local state and area colleges to facilitate an easy transfer for further education. There are so many programs of study to major in at SMCC, a helpful thing for those who are unsure as what to major.

Campus Resources: I do not have much experience with the quality of the athletic center & campus activities, so this review does not include those.

The campus itself is really nice, but as it's an old fort, some buildings are old and rather outdated. Being right on the beach is what makes this a special school. There are many places to do school work or relax, inside and outdoors. The library is reasonably sized with many computers for work and tutoring services advertised. Resources are readily available and easy to locate.

Academic Flexibility: My program only offers classes during day time hours monday through friday, so it's getting harder to work around work. It's taking me longer to finish because of it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a decent school. The teachers are there to help, I've had more good experiences with teachers than bad. The classes are not as difficult as you may think at first, and they keep in touch.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: You have to be aggressive when you first start, and throughout your time to follow up with teachers and advisers. They see hundreds of students and if you don't stand out, you will get lost in the shuffle. The size of classes are around 20-25 people or less. Not too overwhelming.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I picked a pretty specific career, so I'm hoping it pays off when I graduate. I like that the field I'm going into has ways to advance and study further, and that the registration test is a national one. I can move to another state and find work.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I love being able to see my assignments ahead of time, to work at my own pace, and not have to venture out into winter storms to go to a class. It's mostly on my time.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There is a wide difference in ages. I go to school with people from all walks of life.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's a community college, so the tuition is pretty low for college which is a nice benefit.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have enjoyed most of my programs teachers, but am dismayed that there are not more evening classes or options. Some classes are only offered in the spring time which extends the time you have to be in school.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: There seem to be a large array of choices for students to major in.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus is right on Casco bay, and the school has utilized older existing buildings instead of uselessly tearing them down. It gives the school character. The library is great, there are a couple computer labs and the buildings are easy to find.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I wish I could've had my classes all in a few days so I could work more.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's okay, I've had nice classes, but I wish I went to another college.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They're alright, but they don't have real challenging courses.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't heard anything really about it.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It's not difficult or challenging me

3 College Junior

Online Courses: It's very similar to a regular classroom class but it's hard to remember you have one when you also have classes in person.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I went into college thinking that I would be on my own, but once I got there, I realized that there are so many people there to support you, other students, teachers, tutors, faculty, etc.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: With my financial aid and the low tuition rates, my whole first semester is paid for. I am so thankful that I chose community college first.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Every single faculty member that I have spoken to here is so kind and helpful, and they really seem to care about you and what is going on in your life and they are more than willing to help the students in any way that they can.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: Any "type" of person that you can imagine, you can find at Southern Maine Community College. People come from all different backgrounds, heritages, even countries.
