I am very happy to be part of FMCC. I have made many friends and I have a wonderful life with my roommates. I am really lucky to meet good teachers at FMCC who taught me a lot of good things. I am glad I landed at a college that gives me a holistic experience of how a student life is like. I love FMCC so much.

I studied here because I had done some research on the campus and know this is the right place to be. The study environment perfectly fits me well. I can study in quiet place when I need to concentrate on doing assignment but also have great fun with my friends in some community area too. I'm glad I could come here and make my dream come true.

I am currently doing my English course. I am very pleased with my English improvement even though I have only been here for a short time. I can already understand the key points and accurately express my thoughts. I am very grateful to my teachers, and everyone around me who have strongly supported me throughout my studies.
At FMCC, apart from gaining knowledge in the classrooms, I can participate in a variety of activities on campus including discussions, visiting art exhibitions, playing games in the residence halls. I love all of those activities that help me build up my networks and people skills.

I heard about Colby-Sawyer College through the recruitment from the tennis coach and decided to come here because of the generous scholarship that the college offered. One thing that I enjoy the most here is my sports team because they are just like my family far away from home. The ballet class is my favorite class on campus because it gives me the chance to be back on a stage, something that I was always passionate about. And buffalo chicken wings are my favorite American food!

I have been at FMCC for more than one month. I am so happy that I can study in FMCC because it is not just a place to study but to connect with new friends so I don't feel lonely staying far away from my family and friends. My professors are very friendly and always willing to talk to me when I have any problems with my assignment. It is important to be in the place where I can both pursue my dream and see myself grow.

"For me, the best part about studying at FM was that I really connected with my inner passion. I recognized how much I love studying about marketing and how I developed an interest for the stock market. Plus, I’ve never been so motivated to achieve my dream and that is possible now due to the fact that I met the best professor I ever had, Mr. Laurence K. Zuckerman. He is my idol, my motivation and a person I look up to for guidance. This is what FM offers. It's not just good academics but a good relationship with your professor, which is important and people tend to neglect it."

I come from Vietnam and just join FMCC for a short period of time and things are so much different here, but I love this beautiful campus. My teachers and the staff from student service office are very friendly and helpful, that makes my transition to FMCC a lot easier. My dream is to complete my study here at FMCC and enjoy my new life in the US, then earn a career in Hospitality management. I highly recommend FMCC to every future students who dream to study in America.

"Stop delaying your education for things that are out of your control. Once you have your degree, you are able to accomplish so much more in life, and no one can take that success away from you. FM is an awesome opportunity to get an education without putting yourself into a ton of debt. I am grateful to have started at FM."

"I think COD is great. I am so glad that it's still here; it has grown along with the world. I feel honored to be part of the history around here. A lot of people ask me “Barbara, do you remember the night when Frank Sinatra was in the gymnasium at a concert drinking wine and the college president was not happy about it?" There are so many fun things to remember."
Barbara Keedy Eastes, Class of 1965, reflects on COD Beginnings.

Maryville University - a second home and so far an incredible experience. Every day gives new opportunities to make new, long-lasting memories with faculty, staff, and other students. At Maryville I matter, I inspire, I get inspired, and I evolve. For each day that passes I see myself becoming more and more the person I aspire to be, and with the engaging staff and great diversity, there is always something to take away from each and every day.

All the professors know students at a personal level, which makes it easier in the teaching-to-learning method and helps us understand the subject material much more easily. Also, the internship opportunities, lab works, and practical experiences give us a hands-on understanding of our classes. I am learning so much about the nursing profession. I am also learning to open up myself in discussions because our classes are highly discussion-based which makes learning interesting.

I couldn't have imagined picking a better school to complete my studies. Maryville University is like a second family to me. From the staff to the faculty and students, Maryville gives me the tools to succeed both in the classroom and outside of it. I have become a leader in this community and it is all thanks to Maryville. Maryville is where the people make the difference.

Starting off at a 2-year college really helps you nail down what you really want to do instead of going to a 4-year college, paying all that money and end up changing your major fives times. Coming here helps you figure out what you want to do. I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I started at FM. Taking a history class with Dr. Marotta, one of my favourite professors, that’s where my passion for politics and American history came about. Professors here help you make a pathway for a career.

I chose Colby-Sawyer College because it was the best option I had out of the colleges I was looking at. I was recruited by the tennis coach to play on the tennis team, and he certainly sent a great and enthusiastic email through the recruitment agency. So, to play on the tennis team was the first reason, and secondly - the ski pass to the local ski mountain was too hard to turn down! My favorite place to hang out on campus would probably be in the game room with my friend. When I get the time we will play pool/table tennis and talk about our lives.

"Since becoming a Bearcat I have experienced lots in a short time. They offer many opportunities for the students to get involved on campus: from making new friends to improving my language skills and having excellent experiences with professors."
