    Sampson has really improved the campus over the years. The new telephone boxes for emergency's was a great idea. The improved parking is wonderful but a bit far from your classes.

    Campus Safety

    There is always a cop on campus that is patroling at all hours and is very helpful an dfriensly to the students. He is alwyas there to help!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are not many clubs and activities offered or in my interest so I cant not specify on them. If there even is any.

    Bang for the buck

    You definitely get your moneys worth here at Sampson. Also with your financial aid you get a check back and everyone is always cheerful to get money in their pockets!

    What to do for fun

    There isn't much to do at Sampson but you can go and shoot some pool, but its $.75 a game. There is also a ping pong table and the competition is fierce! I enjoy spending time playing ping pong!

    Food and Dining

    Sampson does have a cafeteria to where you can go and order food but i believe the food is over priced. But it is delicious and nutritious. But most of the students prefer to go down the road to one of the local restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms in Sampson but i find the couch in the Student Center very comfortable between classes!!

    Academic Rigor

    The Academic stand point in Sampson is great! They offer many tutoring opportunities so you are able to get the help that you need when you need it. Also the teacher and Proffesor have certain office hours to where you are able to go and talk to them about grades, or school work, or anything you need help in.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would tell prospective students to try and register early! There are a lot of adults that go to continue their education and the classes fill up quick. Try to apply and get your classes as fast as possible.

    In three sentences

    Sampson is overall a good school but is small and lacks the extracurricular activities some students would like. The teachers are great and help the students so everyone can have a great experience at this college and fulfill their goals. Overall i would give it a solid B and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good small community college.

    Other than the geese? I know that the school is close to where law enforcement like to hang out. I know for a fact the EMS station is not very far away!

    Great for these types of students

    Those who want to get somewhere and are willing to do the work.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    No idea, but would not mind finding out.

    Bang for the buck

    So far so good. Admissions was as smooth as I had hoped.

    What to do for fun

    Peruse the town around you. There are parks close by, a theater around 4 miles away and a Walmart down the street.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just be polite to them and they will be polite right back. Kindness goes a long way!

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for anyone thinking of attending are if you are planning on enrolling in an online class, make sure you have a computer, there will be a lot of writing assignment. Also, you may went to take a computer or hybrid class before jumping into an online class. It is always a plus to be technologically savvy.

    Sampson Community College is a great local college that has fantastic teachers and is easy to get around. It is great for adult students as well as for those who cannot afford to attend a university. It is an excellent option for those seeking a two year associate degree.

    Great for anyone who wants to attend college. Sampson offers many classes online which provides even more flexibility. Everyone at this college is extremely helpful so anyone could attend and succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of chances to pre-register for classes and attend early registration dates to avoid waiting in long lines. Have all your important papers and information such as financial aid, placement testing, ect. with you and together when you register.

    Bang for the buck

    Sampson Community College is an affordable choice for anyone who wants to attend college. They work with you to get your tuition paid for. Their financial aid office is the most helpful one out of all the colleges I have visited and spoke with.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being at Sampson Community College. They are very flexible with you and help you come up with a schedule that works best for you.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning many new things not only in my selected course of study but also many life lessons.
