    All types. It has Vocational Majors to Liberal Majors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for your classrooms that you have signed up for because being that lost guy on your first day of classes is embarrassing.

    Bang for the buck

    Its cheap and affordable.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being at NMCC because everybody stays to themselves and the atmosphere of the school is peaceful so that you can focus on your school work. It is an all around good place to be,

    Am learning a lot

    Northern Maine Community College (NMCC) is smaller than most colleges which allows for more one-on-one with teachers and students. The resources that this school offers to help the students understand pretty much all fields is a greatly used. They will help in every possible way.

    Food and Dining

    the food is great,my favorite is the chicken burgers they make with there secret sauce.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is good everybody gets along well.

    Academic Rigor

    use your time wisely and go to open labs every chance you have to catch up or get ahead of the class. you will have a better outcome at the end of the year and if you have trouble with a class i suggest that you go to the academic success center for a tutor.

    Tips for prospective students

    you just have to keep your head up even when you fail a test because the first semester is the hardest until you get to know your instructors and how they test you and the way everything works.

    The campus is a very safe place.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    NMCC is great for students looking to get an associates degree in two years. You can also start off in liberal studies until you get in to the program you want, getting some of the core classes done.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a great nursing lab and an amazing simulation lab for nurses. They host lots of campus entertainment, such as film night.

    Bang for the buck

    Research the cost of the program you want to pursue. It is very affordable.

    Northern Maine is a great place for outdoor activities year round. Big Rock is nearby for downhill skiing.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria offers very good food with a variety of choices. The bookstore also offers quick meals such as soups, sandwiches and salads.

    Dorm Life

    I haven't stayed in the dorms myself, but the students say they are very comfortable

    Academic Rigor

    The Registered Nursing Program is challenging. It requires dedication and hard work. Take advantage of resources available to help students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep track of paperwork needed to apply and where you are in the process (this applies to all schools). Keep a folder with all needed information. Complete paperwork in a timely fashion.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically, any subject is challenging, but not to worry if you don't understand, instructors and students alike are willing to lend a helping hand.

    I would recommend attending a community college over a university any day. A community college is more personable and easier to learn to navigate.

    In three sentences

    Northern Maine Community College is a small college but offers a wide variety of majors and subjects. I would recommend this college to anyone. Ninety-nine percent of the faculty and staff are very helpful, understanding and upbeat!
