Am learning a lot
I have taken quite a few classes at SCC and I feel as though I have retained a large portion of what I have studied. I have taken anything from Psychology to English to Human Sexuality; the wide range of classes offered really makes SCC a great learning environment. There are quite a few good teachers, as well. The low teacher to student ratio really helps with the learning process.
Am enjoying being here
One of the best things about SCC is that it is not a large college; it is a good size and it is easy to become familiar with. The teachers here are often incredibly understanding and easy to talk to; I have only encountered one teacher that I believed to be difficult. With my other professors, I have become personally acquainted with them. I have met many great students and faculty in my few years here.
Bang for the buck
If you are a serious student and work to pass your classes, then the amount spent is definitely worth the academic experience.
Tips for prospective students
See a counselor as often as you can, even if you already know what you want to do with your life. Make sure to get an AA only if it is necessary because once you receive an AA, SCC will no longer grant you financial aid. This is perhaps the only negative comment that I have about SCC.
Great for these types of students
SCC is great for students who do not have the money to pay high tuition costs. It is also great for students who like small, clean campuses. If you're unsure of your major or if you're set on your career path, SCC is a great school for you. Really, it is a great starting point for anyone.

Did learn a lot
My major was Business and I enjoyed those classes immensely. I only wish I could have had a different Accounting teacher - I found her teaching style dull and hard to pay attention to.
Did enjoy being here
Some of the students were still young, and acted like they didn't want to be there. But once I got into my major classes, those were the people who were really serious. I definitely recommend finding the serious students to study with and work on group projects with. Otherwise you may find yourself with my work than you bargained for.
Bang for the buck
Although tuition has gone up since my first semester here, it's still a reasonable amount, especially when you consider what other colleges are requiring! Plus financial aid is always an option. The best thing that helped me out was applying for the Board of Governors fee waiver. It basically wiped away what I owed for tuition and I just had to concentrate on the rest.
Tips for prospective students
-Buy a parking permit. A day permit is cheap at $2 but eventually will be more than the permit itself. And they do have campus security who WILL ticket you if you're parked without one.
Great for these types of students
Everybody, from those fresh out of high school, people who want to learn something new or get a certificate in a field, people who weren't able to go to college when they were young, etc.
