Collin County Community College District Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1)
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.
