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.
Tips for prospective students
A few tips for prospective students would be: become friends with your teachers, have a group of friends that are taking the same, or similar, classes so you can help each other study, and never take an outstretched hand for granted.
Academic Rigor
The teachers really care, but we, as students, have to show forth the effort as well.
Food and Dining
Open places to eat and Kelly's Corner has great food and its not super expensive.
What to do for fun
South Florida Community College has great clubs to join, there is something for everyone. No one is left out.
Bang for the buck
The tuition at South Florida Community College is reasonable. Some colleges are very expensive, but South Florida Community College works with the students who have students themselves or students fresh out of high school and needing a degree to get somewhere better. South Florida Community College definitely gives the students their money's worth in classes and books.
Clubs and Activities
There is a club for everybody, you just have to look or experiment with them. The people that are involved with the clubs, or leading them, are very kind people and they will help you work your way into the life of the club. There is no obligation to stay in a club, but once you are in, you wont want to leave.
Campus Safety
There is campus security 24/7 regardless of if there is or isn't classes that day. The campus security guards will help you as much as they can, they will even walk you to your car if you have a night class and there is almost no cars in the parking lot. The campus security office number is posted all around the campus and there are call boxes in parking lots and between buildings if the students need access to them.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Get to know people in your classes and especially your professors. It is so helpful to know people that can help you in studying for upcoming exams and getting a group of students together and studying. Also, join clubs and be active in the community. It makes things so much more fun!
Academic Rigor
At South Florida State College it is so easy to focus on your academics because there are simply no other distractions. Avon Park is a small town in which there are not many things to do and therefor you will find yourself completing your assignments on time and even getting additional help from professors if needed. The classes may be challenging but it is all certainly possible.
Dorm Life
The only dorms available at South Florida State College are for the athletes. The Hotel in which they stay in is quite massive and beautiful if you ask me. It is an extroardinary sight as you drive down Main ST in downtown Avon Park. It is not far from the college yet it is not walking distance exactly. If you are an athlete going to SFSC, it will be a great experience for you.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria at our campus is quite small but you will always find it filled with students and teachers who are friendly and social. Most athletes will be found in the cafeteria during lunch hours because their meals are included in their scholarships. There are also plenty of vending machines all through campus and in every building.
What to do for fun
Honestly, you will not find much to do around Avon Park except if you like fishing, four tracks, or simply swimming in the lake. Less than 20 minutes away from the campus is the city of Sebring in which you wll find two movie theatres, shopping malls, more lakes, veteran's park, and the Hammock Park.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and activities at SFSC and my personal favorite is the Performing Arts Club. This club performs improv, dances and sings, travels to see plays and much more.
