If you come to school here the parking is really bad so you want to make sure you leave time to find parking!

Always get your books the minute the lists are released. The book store cant carry enough for all students.

Get your books on line. 3 sites I recommend are, abebooks.com Amozon.com and textbook.com and get the books early so you can read something before the quarter starts. 2 weeks of reading before hand can boost your GPA.
Daniel from Tumwater, WA
Enjoy and enbrace.
Rochelle from Olympia, WA
Make sure and sign up for classes when you are supposed to. This is a crowded community college and there are only a curtain amount of seats in each class. If you don't get into the classes that you want, get on the wait list and you have a very good chance of getting into the class before the beginning of the quarter.
McKenna from Olympia, WA
Most of my friends always said that SPSCC is a crummy school that doesn't teach you anything. At first, I felt like I should be embarrassed to go here but I now know that there's no reason for that! Obviously, some of the lower level classes are easy-- Art 101 is going to be easy anywhere you go. Taking harder classes like Anatomy and Physiology, or Microbiology and you will definitely learn a lot and be very impressed with the knowledge that your professors hold.
Kate from Olympia, WA
I would definitely recommend taking Running Start. Even if you can't enter in your junior year, at least take it senior year. That's $3,000 you save right off the bat, and it's a very refreshing jumpstart into college life. They have a ton of options there to get you plugged in, so don't be afraid to get involved. Also, there are lot of opportunities at SPSCC for community service, so grab hold of those, get letters of recommendation from your supervisors, and apply for the scholarships SPSCC offers pertaining to community service. Get involved with student life and make a difference. The atmosphere is open and warm, and you won't regret getting involved. It'll look really good on a resume and on applications for pursuing your education later.

GET INVOLVED! Seriously you will do so much better, you will meet people and get a support system right away. Ask fellow students about teachers before you register.
