    i got exactly what i was looking for with my education, and it was cheap as far as colleges go! i took a lot of challenging science classes, and 15 credits every quarter, and my total tuition was only $9,000. small class sizes and personalized instruction also made it very worthwhile.

    I was kind of expecting the quality of education to suffer because SPSCC is just a community college but in my experience it has been excellent. The teachers all knew their subjects and enjoyed teaching it which makes a huge difference in the class room.

    School where ever you go is what you make it. SPS has plenty of events and a ton of things to do take advantage. The school for the most part is cheap and if you have a financial need they have a ton of ways to help. Be sure to ask for help if needed.

    Some of the facilities are worn-out (I'm looking at you, gym and cafeteria), but the overall educational quality is worth the low cost. :-)

    I enrolled at SPSCC in the medical assistant program and there is a club for that. Which is wonderful. I am able o interact with other students pursuing the same degree as I am and am able to get advice and help on my class subjects from people in the club.
