I transferred after one lousy semester at the University of Maine. I learned more at QVCC in the first WEEK than I did at UMaine. Excellent place to attend. Obviously social life/extracurricular isn't excellent, but the college serves its purpose very well. I wasn't a NUMBER. That was really a nice change in pace. I love it here, it feels kinda like high school, and I used to grimace at the thought of ever attending a *gasp* local community college after graduating. It was so much better than my previous university. And CHEAP. Yes, some of the under achievers from high school are here, but not soley.

Community college is a great way to start your college career it's almost like a second chance if you've not done as well in high school (or found yourself distracted in high school).

There are so many great instructors at QV (Hirst and Battye, two of my favorites) that genuinely care about you as a person, how you're doing in the class, and your future goals. Do not attempt to slack off in most classes--you must be there and do the work or else you'll fail. The myth that community college is a blow-off is just that--a myth. If you take easy courses (there are some, and you'll find them), you can try breezing through, but overall you'll need to take something of substance. If you truly want a great educational foudation, you can do it at QV. Your education is what you make of it--I've put a lot into it and I've reaped many benefits. I believe the education is first-rate.

The faculty and staff are always available and helpful and understand if students have special needs. Most people are on a first-name basis; students help one-another; people work together. Most importantly, the student body is very diverse (especially the Willimantic campus) and you are guaranteed to meet people of all ages from different walks of life.

My only word of advice is to choose your courses carefully and check out the instructors. Some are of the belief that community college should be "easy," and I have had to drop one class because I did not find it met the college's normally high standards. Choose wisely and you will find a wealth of knowledge!
