Am learning a lot
Wow I can't tell you how much I learned at this school. To me it was hard work but I learned more than I ever did in all 4 yrs of high school in one semester
Am enjoying being here
Ya I love going to college there. The teacher are definately one on one and will help whenever you really need it. They actually know your name. That rocks
Bang for the buck
I saved so much more money by going here than I would going to Texas Tech. Saved like up to 8,000
Tips for prospective students
Get to know the teachers

Actually study it can be hard

Use your time wisely
Great for these types of students
Students who love to learn and will work hard at whatever they do

south plains college is an excellent institution with great instructors who truly care about the studen'ts education. the college has expanded and serves a large based population from many cities and towns. the academics are on level with her sister college, texas tech, so that students may transfer easily.
Tips for prospective students
taking these classess seriously help the student get more focused attention and make it easier to ask questions. the long haul is what makes south plains college a great school. the school stands alone as one of the regions greatest schools, and joins other schools in the area as a community focused institution.
Academic Rigor
the lessons and material are exactly what students need to earn a degree or transfer to texas tech for more focused study.
Dorm Life
the dorms are a very integral part of campus life on the levelland campus, but not on reese campus, a commuter campus.
Food and Dining
great food with alot of variety.
What to do for fun
many clubs and activities for different kinds of students exist for the student. from intramurals to lifestyle clubs that help the student maintain social status'.
Bang for the buck
i feel like coming to south plains college was a major point in my life, because the preparation i am receiving for the future will be very beneficial.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
there is a center in lubbock, the byron martin atc building, which students from lubbock can take some of their classes. this accessibility is critical for students from lubbock. there is also the reese campus which is right outside of lubbock, that is nicely located between lubbock and the main campus in levelland. these locations make it so very easy for students to plan their schedule according to jobs and home, especially if your from lubbock.
Great for these types of students
students that are older and coming back to school. students that have just graduated and are worried about the large college experience. actually all students.
Clubs and Activities
intramurals, gay and straight alliance, and so many other varieties of clubs.
Campus Safety
the safety on campus is great. students do feel safe as they attend classes, and have places to go for help, if needed.

I attend SPC at the Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center as a Full-Time Automotive Technology Student. The Classroom and Lab are small, but the Instructors are good and they both have plenty of real world experience. Overall I am satisfied with the education and hands on experience that I am recieving at SPC.
Tips for prospective students
Be organized and on-time.
If not computer litterate then get that way.
Plan and stay focused, make plenty of time to read.
Academic Rigor
The Courses that I am currently taking in Automotive Technology are only difficult if a student is unprepared and absent.
Dorm Life
I drive 50 miles from my home in Plainview Tx. to the School in Lubbock Tx. and back daily. I have no input for dorm life
Food and Dining
I only use the vending machines. So, no input for Food and Dining.
Bang for the buck
Good education so far for the price.
Great for these types of students
Students preparing for a career in Automotive or Industrial Technologies
Campus Safety
The campus I use is shared with Lubbock Indipendant School District, so it is very safe.

This school encourages you to pursue your career goals. The teachers are very helpful. Small environment encourages students learn and get more face time with teachers.
Tips for prospective students
Attend all classes as much as possible. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Take notes. Get to classes early. Study. Do your work once you get it.
Academic Rigor
Depends on what classes you have and who you have. It is important to attend classes, because you can miss a lot.
Dorm Life
Is pretty great! Women's dorms are a little better than the men's. New dorm is now available, co-ed, and it looks amazing! Dorm Apartments are also available. It is better to live on campus than off due to weather and the cost of gas.
Food and Dining
There are many fast food places and restaurants near campus. Snack bar inside campus consists of many great foods. Cafeteria available for people who live on campus, and costs for people who live off campus. The food can be so-so.
What to do for fun
The Student Activities Center is a great place to hang between classes! It consists of many pool tables, ping pong tables and other games. Recently installed video games, so you can play the Wii or XBox. It has nice outdoor areas for people who want to run around and play Football or Ultimate Frisbee, and also have tennis courts. The school also has Intramural Sports like flag football, basketball, and others. Also if you are interested in Theatre, but not a Theatre major, you can still audition for the many plays. The Commercial Music program also holds fests at the end of each semester that everyone can attend for free live music.
Bang for the buck
The school is pretty cheap, in a good way! Financial Aid is always good. You get a lot for what you pay for!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The school has a ranch, I believe that's what it is, for the students enrolled into Rodeo classes and others.
Great for these types of students
Students into sports like Track&Field and Basketball especially! Basketball team was undefeated this year. If you are used to small environment classes, this is always great!
Clubs and Activities
Campus Ambassadors. Catholic Student Organization. Baptist Student Ministries. Gay/Straight Alliance. Broadcasting. Hispanic Student Organization. Press Club. SPC Bands. STAR. Student Government. Texan Cheerleaders. And many more!
Greek Life
Phi Theta Kappa
Campus Safety
Campus Police are placed around campus. Their office is easy to find.

South Plains College is a great starting school that allows you to obtain the basics without breaking the bank. The classes are more interactive and with a smaller student body, it is easier to get involved. The teachers at this school are very well rounded and they are open to discussing things taking place in the classrooms.
Tips for prospective students
Come into South Plains College with an open mind and be ready to set your goals high. The teachers set very high expectations for their students and it is easier to meet these expectations if you give your all. Always come prepared to class, the teachers do not accept late work or excuses.
Academic Rigor
The academic aspect of South Plains College is favorable for the teachers and the students. The teachers set their expectations high and the students, most often, meet the expectations. The classes are challenging but that is because they are preparing you for the university that you may attend after completion at South Plains College.
Dorm Life
I have not lived on the dorm, therefore I am unable to speak about dorm life.
Food and Dining
The food ranges from hot to cold, freshly made to packaged. The food is always prepared really well and the cost is easy on the bank. The amount and quality of the food is exceptional.
What to do for fun
There are many things to do for fun on campus. The school has workout programs, a recreational building, a technology center, group meetings, a gym, and much more. If you are looking for something to do, it will not be hard to find it at South Plains College.
Bang for the buck
The school is very inexpensive when compared to schools in this area. It costs a fraction of what it would to attend Texas Tech University for the first two years and the education is just as great. The teachers prepare you for the university that you will be going to next and they do not slack when it comes to education.

It is a community college, very small, affordable, and helpful instructors. The classroom sizes small and better one on one interaction with teachers if needed. Great college, reminds me of my small high school, but at a college level.
Tips for prospective students
Its always better to start at a community college vs. a university. In order for you to explore your options, but whatever you do make decisions before its too late.
Academic Rigor
Better than going to a university.
Dorm Life
I have no idea, never had the opportunity to live on campus, but hear its great experience.
Food and Dining
Great if you go to the levelland campus, but no cafeteria at the Reece campus in lubbock.
What to do for fun
Not much to do, unless you join some sort of organization.
Bang for the buck
Great opportunity if you want to save some money
Campus Safety
GREAT feeling to have security cameras and officers doing there job

SPC is a great school and everyone there is extremely nice and helpful. I had never attended college before SPC and knew very little about the process but the folks at SPC made it so simple to apply and get in. I'd recommend SPC to anyone.
Tips for prospective students
Fill out your FAFSA early as it takes time to process because they have so many apllicants! If you need help the financial aid department is always very willing to help and never impatient!
Academic Rigor
The teachers at SPC are very patient and taught very well. They expect a lot from you but only because they believe you can succeed. You will definately learn all you need to know in the classes at SPC.
Dorm Life
I didn't live in a dorm.
Food and Dining
I ate off campus, sorry!
What to do for fun
Join one of the many clubs offered or study!
Campus Safety
There are always officers on duty at SPC and I have always felt safe which is good because my classes were at night.
