| The campus is well laid out, well organized and nice. There are police there all the time, and I've always felt safe in the evenings when walking out to my car. The parking situation can be difficult during the day time, however. You may have to park a good distance away from the building, and walk. The math instructors there are great. Some of the professors did not use the English language very well. Their accent was very thick, making it difficult to understand the lectures. And in some cases, they did not use correct English in wording their test questions. Most of the professors are great, but some of them can be difficult to get along with. I was not impressed with the nursing instructors. They seemed to favor younger students, while dismissing older students as not worth the time. They also picked apart the personalities of their students, rather than encouraging them in their chosen field. One of the nursing instructors is an incredibly negative person, and I would be disappointed to learn she was still teaching there. My hope is that she will leave teaching and do something else. Otherwise, I've been very satisfied with Collin College. |

| Stay away from the Collin College counseling and mental health center. In my experiences they were hypocritical, snide, deceitful, and unprofessional bullies. If you retaliate against their bullying with offensive words they will call the police on you. They will have you arrested by their Gestapo police officers. They will throw you in prison with convicted violent offenders. They will try to get you a prison sentence through a district attorney that they have a conflict of interest with. The counselors are so zoned out on something, they are corrupt, and they have a dirty political agenda to follow. Be very careful with them. In fact you should avoid them if you do not want to be brainwashed or harassed. If you feel discriminated against based on sex, color of skin, race, national origin, or age then call and voice your complaints and concerns to U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OFFICE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS Tel.: (214) 661-9600. Do not take any crap from your professors or the school counselors who are supposed to sooth your anxiety and depression. You can also report them to the ACLU: American Civil Liberties Union and ripoff report complaint website. Expose all corruption, rudeness, hostility, and, abuse. |

| I do not currently have a Collin College email but I was a paying student at Collin College from 2002-2004. |
In my experiences the lectures were usually mediocre. The assignments were okay but not that great or useful. The best class I had was in communications taught by Mrs. Rhodes. Everything I learned from her was useful and practical. The rest of the classes were somewhat disappointing and inane. The worse were economics, philosophy, government, geology, psychology, music appreciation, English, and college algebra. I hated taking the multiple choice scantron type exams. More than often the exam questions didn't even cover lecture or book material. I found that to be irritating and unfair.
Don't expect to make friends. The people are very self absorbed and distracted. The faculty and students are really conservative. The students are from the south or from very religious Asian countries. So, basically everybody thinks the same. You will not see too many diverse lifestyles. You will see conservative white people and a handful of internationals who are also conservative. If you are socially liberal and independent you probably will not fit in. I found several of the people who work there to be really snide and unhelpful. And, I don't recommend this college unless you can take online courses.
