4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The nursing program is amazing. There are top of the line simulating robots that allows the students to be very interactive and creates a very realistic feel. Nursing is a challenging profession to learn, and it reflects in the workload. Southern Maine Community College students do clinicals at Maine Medical Center, the top ranked hospital in Maine. Many students are offered jobs or internships following the clinicals.

Overall Experience: Southern Maine Community College is a school for everyone. It is a very diverse school, and is a comfortable learning environment for all ages. There are many clubs provided, the professors and other students are relatively friendly and approachable. This school also offers two campuses, which is great if you live locally, one might offer less of a commute. The South Portland campus is right on the ocean, so in between classes you can relax by the water, do some homework, or take a little hike to Bug Light. I would, and will, continue going to this school until I get my associates degree, and from then I will be transferring to continue my studies. If I could start over, I would potentially try to go to another community college to start my degree, only because my specific degree (nursing) has a very long wait period, and you cannot go onto the wait list until you have completed all prerequisites, so my associates degree that should only take two years will take 3. This school does however have higher standards and graduating nurses have a better success rate when moving forward in the field.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I honestly do not know too much about this.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I honestly do not know too much about other courses. I know there is a plethora of courses you could take and major in. I've heard quite a great amount of things about the professors. Overall good things about them too, such as how nice and diligent they are to work with you. To my understanding they hired the best people they could for the classes they offer.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far I haven't heard too much about these types of things for programs other than mine. Sadly I'm a little self-oriented when it comes to these things. I know if you are going to school for Culinary Arts there are plenty of these opportunities once you are enrolled.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My Major is Culinary Arts and one of the cool things about Southern Maine is that the professors and the entire program is apart of this organization called the ACF which stands for The American Culinary Federation. This program helps students like me and everyone that is going to school for something dealing with food, get scholarships to further their careers in college and in the real world. They have lessons to teach you things you already didn't know they have volunteer opportunities which help you get some experience with catering.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This College is great. I've met with some of the professors. They are easy to talk to and are so very willing to help in all your endeavors. Just be willing to take the first step, and let them know what it is you are trying to ask of them. They will always try to the best of their ability to help you.

Academic Flexibility: Lots of classes offered throughout the day and some on the weekend, scheduling around work was easy for me.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My major has experienced professionals

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lots of internship potentials but limited in helping you find a career at graduation.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers in my major are experienced professionals and give lots of time to planning their curriculum.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lots of majors to choose from, housing isn't the easiest to get and parking can be limited.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I feel like it was silly for me to have to take a literature class when i have two prior degrees, a BA and BS.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Using blackboard is kinda cool but the online class is really basically a self taught class with minimal guidance.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I was able to attend a career fair which helped me network. I also used the student navigators to help plan out my semesters and plan to get a new career.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I enjoy the location, the flexibility, and the affordability. I will be spending the same amount to obtain my associates as I did for 1 semester when getting my bachelors.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: applying was not too difficult. I think that obtaining prior transcripts was the most difficult part.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Teachers have usually worked in the field so their knowledge base is extensive. However, it does not seem as though they have much experience teaching, no degree in education usually. This sometimes makes conveying the information difficult for them.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: SMCC is affordable and unique. The campus is right near the ocean. The buildings are not great, pretty old. Most of the professors, so far, are not specifically great at teaching but they have worked in the fields that they are teaching so they know the material well. Like any college, a lot of work is expected to be done by the student outside of class. It is somewhat flexible, accommodating students who work and take classes. I would say that the flexibility and affordability are the strong points that draw students in.
