    Great for these types of students

    If you are not ready to leave home just yet or can't affors to do so, then a community college is the best alternative. I was one who was dying to leave after I graduated, but I did not have the money or aid so I entered into a community college. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I am close to home and I have the opportunity to get some of my tougher classes out the way, such as CSI and Calculus I, II, and III. Believe me, a community college is best for these type of classes if you prefer to be taught by people who speak you language.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have applied for every scholarship and grant that is available. If you are not sure of what to apply for, then ask the financial aid expert. They are great at helping you apply for as much money as poosible so that you want have to come out of your pockets. Importantly, if you are not a morning person or vice/versa, then make sure you take classes at a time that best fits your attention span. lol.

    Bang for the buck

    because it is important that you take every opportunity available to get money from the college you are entering. In this school, you have a few opportunities to recieve some type of financial aid. Such as their Expose' and, or course, their baseball and basketball programs. They also have art and journalism scholarships.

    Am enjoying being here

    because the size of every class is very similar to that of high school. The teachers are able to focus in on certain students who may need more help and they are able to learn the names of the students. The most important reason why I enjoy being here is because it gives me the opoortunity to get some of my tougher classes out the way before transfering to a public college and taking a class with a professor who I do not understand because of his language or lack their of.

    Am learning a lot

    about credits, GPA, and other so called important aspects of college life. A GPA is not calculated the way a high school's GPA is calculated. Every class is very important and it is criticalley important that you get the best grade possible, especially in classes that are worth four credit hours. Earn a C or less in those type of classes and your GPA can fall a considerably great amount. The most important thing that I have learned since entering college is how to manage my time and the amount of classes I take a week. Try not to overload or it could became a pain, especially if you have a job or some other activity to do.

    Campus Safety

    safety will never be an issue.

    Clubs and Activities

    this is one of the few downsides. being small, there are not many clubs besides a few sports clubs and academic clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    the monroeville campus has a nursing program, which is what many people attend here for. overall, it is for students who want to further their education from a quality school; who have a drive for academic excellence because it is not as easy as most think.

    Bang for the buck

    for what you pay, and what you're able to receive and use for the future, it is very affordable and worthwhile. scholarships that the school offers can get you through your 2 years.

    What to do for fun

    given that alabama southern isn't a vastly large community college, there isn't too much to do especially since it is a rather small rural town. the school does offer various activities to do now and then which coincide with activities from the various other alabama southern campuses in different cities.

    Food and Dining

    there is no food/dining.

    Dorm Life

    there are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    it really depends on who your teacher is, but most require a moderate to high level of understanding of the information.

    Tips for prospective students

    even though this is a community college, the quality of education is that of a 4-year university. don't take this as something easy like high school; you will have to strive for excellence and rid bad habits such as procrastination.

    In three sentences

    alabama southern is an overall great school academically; the smaller classes allow for more discussions and one on one time with teachers. the teachers are outstanding and show a passion for what they do especially the science department. comparing some of the similar things i've learned in high school to now is no contest in the better quality and higher retention of the information that i've received from alabama southern.

    In three sentences

    Alabama Southern is small school with Southern charm. The small class sizes help to keep both students and teacher sane. No long line waiting periods when needing to schedule a meeting with a teacher or an advisor.
