Am learning a lot
I am currently attending Scottsdale Community College and love it. The teachers I have experienced in the Music program are passionate, helpful, and motivational. My English teach Professor Eric Loring has been an amazing teacher, he loves his work and spreads that passion to us. I have learned so much in this past semester.
Am enjoying being here
The people and teachers are very friendly. The campus is beautiful and I am very much enjoying being there.
Bang for the buck
If you test high enough on the placement test you can get a scholarship and entrance into the honors college. This scholarship is the presidential scholarship and covers fifteen credits. Because of this scholarship I have received 15 free credits and pay very little. It has been great.
Tips for prospective students
I would avoid the Jazz Improvisation class taught by Justin. I had no previous Jazz experience, just classical and was told by another teacher I would be alright, but this was wrong. He was condescending, rude, and not a teacher at all. He would push the students who were new up to the front of the class to do things they said they did not know how to do and embarrass them on purpose. He was one of the worst teachers I have ever had, if you can even call him that, because he did not teach at all. He was arrogant and did not seem to be trying to teach the inexperienced students just tried to get them to drop his class.
Great for these types of students
For students pursuing a Jazz Instrumental degree or Vocal performance degree, this college is great. The programs at SCC are wonderful, as long as you have experience.

So far all of my teachers have been very knowledgeable and helpful. The subjects are taught effectively and interestingly. I especially enjoyed Anthropology with Lisa Cole and Honors Forum with Suzanne Schlapkohl.
Am enjoying being here
Except for a few problems with registration my time at this college has been enjoyable.
Bang for the buck
Like I said before the classes are taught well and I have gotten much out of them.
Tips for prospective students
Try to score high on the placement test so you can apply for the honors program. The honors program gives you a two year scholarship at $1080 a semester for this school. I ended up paying very little for school.
