    Clubs and Activities

    Frisbee Golf, Rock Wall

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Polar Dip: Optional winter swim in te nearby St Croix River.

    Bang for the buck

    Cheapest school in the state of Maine and has exeptional instructors and hold their students to the highest standards.

    What to do for fun

    The school has and outdoor adventure center with gear for climbing, canoeing, kayaking, ice fishing, mountain biking, and camping wich makes for the fun time when the weathers warm. When winter freezes over most students frequent pubs on either side of the river(legal drinking age in Canada is 19).

    Food and Dining

    The is a small cafe open during the week with a limited menue but students are expected to provide food and cook for themselves.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are apartments housing five students each, two doubles and one single, with a shared bathroom and kitchen. The dorms are ample but the rules and regs are strict and off campus appartments and be found at lower prices.

    Academic Rigor

    It is community college and does not necessitate the type of academic rigor found in most four year degrees however everything learned, even in the trades, also has a classroom aspect assigned to it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you pay the school a visit first to be sure rural Maine won't be too much of a culture shock for you. If you like what you see after your visit to the town and school make a year out of it.

    In three sentences

    WCCC is ranked among the best community colleges in the nation. Located in Calais Maine directly on the Canadian border. Extremely fun school if you bring your passport.

    The tuition is very affordable along with the books required for classes. My finacial aid covered alot of the expenses and even some of my books. The caffeteria is also very cheap and delicious.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is nice and spacious. Also out of almost every window is a gorgeous view of Canada and the Saint Croix River. All the students and staff are extremely friendly. There is always something happening on campus from field trips to movie nights it is a never a dull day here.

    Am learning a lot

    Washington County Community College was not my first pick for a college, But now that I go here I am glad I made the decision to attend. I am in the medical assisting program and I absolutely love it. My teachers are amazing and they actually make learning fun. I have a whole new understanding for all the subjects I struggled with in high school. The teachers here really care about their students and will get you on the right track towards your career.
