Angel, the learning system AACC uses, is an absolute pain to use. Sometimes, the assignments don't even submit properly! Thankfully, most teachers understand how terrible this is and it will be replaced in 2014. Still, A C is all I can give it.

The education is well worth the money. Not only do we have some of the best teachers of in state of Maryland but our programs rival even Bachelor programs. You certainly get your money's worth.

Even though I am an out of county student, the prices are still reasonable where I do not have to be on financial aid even with only one parent paying. I do believe I am getting my moneys worth because I'm receiving a great education

I picked this grade because even though the school is very informing and helpful; I'm able to also work at my job easily and support myself. So I achieved the best of both worlds.

You really can't beat community college tuition, especially Anne Arundel's. These are world class professors who have gone through the same exact thing we're going through now and who are currently out in the working world in the profession we're striving to be a part of. It's an incredibly affordable school and we get excellent instruction from people who really care about their students.

Being in the architecture program, I am with the same group of people every day for each class. We've formed a pretty tight-knit group of students and we all help each other out during the tough times in school. Everyone is extremely passionate about school and careers and we're all lucky to have each other. But that's just the architecture department. On the other side of campus you would find, well, stereotypical community college kids. That being said, I stay on my side of campus and keep around the architecture group, they're a great group of people and we couldn't do it without each other.

The school website is great and the hybrid/online class portal is very easy to use and navigate through. The professors who use the website for class always have things posted and ready for us and it becomes a great resource to stay on track during class. The only problem with the computer networking is that something always seems to go wrong, right when a project is due. Usually one of the printers or plotters stops working and no one knows how to fix it. Most of our projects need to be printed on oversized paper which personal printers can't do, so we rely on the school's printers for these documents. For example, right now we have a big project due on three sheets of 11" x 17" paper. There is one printer in the building that will print that, and 13 students need to print out their projects. Before anyone could print, the printer had an issue with it's toner. This was a week ago and we are still unable to print.

There is a lot of academic help on and off campus. They have assistance programs on the school website and they let you set up appointments with tutors. In the architecture program that I am in, they have clubs (American Institute of Architecture Students) that meet each week. It's led by experienced students who lend help to the members with projects.

technology is very good, allthough a little slow at times, everything is amazing.

The student body is very diverse. You see different faces everyday from all over Maryland and it is a good atmosphere to be in.

The library was just remodeled and is bright and open, housing many different "areas" including silent study on one floor, group study rooms, large tables with power access for laptops, and many desktop computers as well. The grounds and athletic fields are well maintained. We have a mix of new buildings and slightly older buildings, but all of them are kept up well. The science labs are well maintained and full of some good equipment.
College Senior 2013-09-26T20:53:03Z
We have a ride share, which is great since we are a commuter school. The local bus runs through our campus as well. We have a good number of athletic programs, as well as many clubs in very diverse areas such as Student Association, various languages, martial arts, and many more. I commute and while I tend to stay on campus between classes I work on homework, so I don't attend many social events but we do have at least one or two a month, sometimes more.
College Senior 2013-09-26T20:48:53Z
There are a few computer labs, in different buildings on campus. The library has many desktop computers as well, including group study rooms with computers in them. Any of the desktops in the library are free use, although some require you to register in a que if there are students waiting in front of you. The wireless internet can be a little slow sometimes, but it general is always up and runs well. Printing is limited to 10 pages for most printers, or you have to pay for extra, so I tend to print at home just to be safe.

I didn't qualify for financial aid because my parents make too much money. I have heard good things from others about the financial aid process.

Tution and financial aid is a whole different story. If your getting alittle help thats totally cool and fine, but when your paying the whole thing, by yourself, it can be a hassal. Thats the boat where im at and its a big struggle, because they did not give me finanical aid. Not even one penny. So im struggling between books, paying college every month, car, ect. I had to do part time this semester, because i couldnt afford fulltime; which really sucks. But if you have money or alittle help you could totally make it and it would be worth it, but if your on my boat it leads you to think is it really worth it, when your struggling financially.
College Sophomore 2013-09-26T02:29:55Z
Most of the professors I've had are very passionate about what they teach and are good teachers, but then others don't seem to actually care about students and their situations. It really just depends on which professor you get, but like I said they are passionate about it, but some just are all about the book or all about what they want to say, but dont include the book. AND sometimes you need alittle of both. But on the other side application process is quick when you go to whichever campus, and the cool thing is that if you don't know exactly what you want to study they have advisors which sit down and talk to you about what you can do while your still trying to find out your major.
College Sophomore 2013-09-26T02:25:31Z
At my school, there is diversity and different age groups; which is good!!!!, BUT in facts of political or religious nothing. and Political a few. and Sexual not sure. Acceptance from others is a yes. People at school dont bully or anything its just difficult trying to make friends, because people either stick to themselves or already have groups, so that can be an extreme challenge.

I am currently going to Anne Arundel Community College. At my school, taking the specific course of Business isn't like i expected it to be. You are pretty much on your own when you go to this community college and its completly boring when it comes to activites or anything related to Business. The teachers are awesome, but taking this course I would have thought it to be alittle more hands on and where I actually learn everyday at school. It doesnt happen to be that way though. I learn somewhat in the class, but i learn more when I just read the book sincerly. I do worry alittle bit just because of the fact if theres not much involvement in the business perspective, how could they even help me locate a job like many colleges and universities are willing to do. AND if there is not much involvement where do i get my knowledge and hands on experience. Do you see what i mean? (by when i say your on your own) Students there are really quiet and do their own thing. HARD TO MAKE FRIENDS.

AACC is a really small school, though what it lacks in size it compensates for in being one of the cleanest, convenient and more beautiful campus's I have seen. Reconstruction has recently been done to modernize buildings and pathways. From an aesthetic point of view the campus is beautiful. You are surrounded mostly by trees and fresh cut green grass in between buildings, places where students tend to sit and study out doors, on grassy hill tops or under trees. Some of the school buildings like ones on West Campus have visually pleasing and very modernly formed architect. With AACC's landscaping you are surrounded by an abundance of beautiful flowers, and even trees are planted in the parking lots, which spread beautiful pink petals in spring semester. There are also numerous gazebos throughout. You will always manage a parking spot, they are spacious and have center side walks which cut all the way through these lots, leading you straight to the campus. Some parking spots sit under solar paneling roofs, from there it's just a short walk to class. A lovely wooden bridge connects East Campus to West Campus. Next to this are little cut path way's which lead into the woods. It's a beautiful walk if you have the time and, if not on an off-campus field trip, is used by the Botany and Environmental classes. A new library was completed recently which has 3 floors and has been completely modernized. Library tool's are easily accessible, computers are plentiful, as well as chairs and lounge areas with convenient table outlets. Now there are numerous sound proof study rooms, with large t.v screens that connect to portable laptops along with dry erase boards, all amazing for group studying. Almost every Academic building has it's own computer lab(s). All computer's run smoothly, after the initial lag from signing in. All of the computers are updated and modern. I have had good experience with the video editing software. As well as enjoyed the spacious, clean, mirror filled, and new shiny hard wood flooring in the Dance room. We have a small gym but which carries good equipment and a seemingly decent sized swimming pool, a very nice basketball arena, one tennis court, and a large field which on the outskirts spells out AACC in a beautiful arrangement of blue and white flowers.

AACC will not reject you if you had bad SAT score's in highschool, or if you didn't take them at all. In those case's you take AACC's placement test to see at what levels you score in Math and English. If there was a subject that you have always struggled with AACC will put you into non-credit classes of that subject until you can reach the higher levels for credit. AACC is for everyone, weather you are young or old or in the middle, learning never stops. AACC is for the students planning to transfer to 4 year schools and for the students coming back to school after years. AACC is a great place to start if you are undecided on your major, if you need some confidence and direct while saving money. Due to the diversity of students and the busy life-styles and obligations they may have; most Professors can be more than understanding in these regards. They can be accommodating, just talking to them can help you succeed. Attendance is very important, while it is enforced to be added to the grading process, and absences may result in grade lowering and can/will result in loss of financial aid support. The Myaacc website is a quick and easy way to stay in touch with lessons/criteria, e-mail teachers,set up an appointments with an Adviser, and to access many things such as financial aid details, GPA, registering for classes and buying textbooks from the book store, all on your own.

Almost every Academic building has it's own computer lab(s), there is no trouble finding an available computer. Printing paper is about 10 cents after about 30 sheets, before 30 it's not regulated at all. Compared to other University's printing is really cheap. My experience with the network is always reliable, and average speed, and the video editing programs were excellent.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
