Collin County Community College District Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
Collin College is an affordable university that provides students with a great education at half the price. Collin College has focused teachers who care about the students success and drive the students of the campus to pursue their interests with their best abilities. I would recommend this university to anyone who is interested in achieving academic success locally before transferring to a D1 university.
I really enjoyed my experience at Collin College. I like the relatively big campus for a community college, yet it's still small enough to feel cozy and comfortable for a quiet and introverted student. I liked the numerous places on campus (I went to Spring Creek and Preston Ridge) to study. There are available tables, benches, and nooks all over the place; I found that much more comfortable than an eerily quiet library. However, there were almost always personal and group size study rooms available if I did need some quiet time. The landscaping and available outdoor study areas were plentiful, too, which I loved during the warmer days. There never really seemed to be a shortage of available places to study. I enjoyed the atmosphere of both campuses, too. They were usually scattered with students but in a nonchalant and relaxed way, not in a hectic and overbearing way. Most of my professors seemed to really care about what they were teaching and had a passion and drive for their students to do well (thanks RateMyProfessor!). There are also a ton of available classes which made scheduling easy. The office staff was usually fairly helpful, too. I wish the school offered more degree programs though. I got my AA in general studies, but I wish it was a more focused degree. I liked that Baylor BloodCare was on campus every few weeks; I loved giving blood, and I loved having it conveniently located on the campus. It made donating and giving back to the community between class extremely easy and hassle-free. The parking on campus was okay. Sometimes you had to drive around for a while to find a spot depending on the time you arrived to campus, but parking was always found eventually. I liked that there wasn't an additional charge for a parking pass. Also, I liked that there was usually an officer conspicuously driving around campus during the day. In general, I felt quite safe walking around campus. All in all, my experience at Collin College was good.
