What Students Are Saying

3.23 Average Rating
South Florida Community College is a great campus to be a student on. It has a community feel to it than most big universities because most of the students that go here have grown up with each other most of their lives. South Florida Community College also has amazing staff that will help us as students as much as they can to see us succeed in our academic career.
Jenha from Sebring, FL
South Florida State College is the greatest, small-town college to meet people in and really get to know who your class mates and professors are. The professor to student ratio is ideal because everyone always has the opportunity to get to know everyone else. The campus is very different from other colleges because it smells like lake and makes you feel like you're in a different world when you're there and to me it's quite exciting.
