St. Clair is a very safe place and learning environment. I have had all great teachers and an overall great experience.
Bang for the buck
St. Clair is a community college so it is very affordable. It is perfect for people with low funding.

Make sure you sign up for classes early because they fill up fast. Also go to an advisor so you are on the right track.

The professors here are from different communities. Not just Port Huron. They are fun and have a lot to offer. They are very professional and present material in an excellent way for me to understand. They are helpful in and out of class. Also a wide variety of courses are offered and transferable.

I like it here. It is small and the classes are just the right size. the surrounding area is full of things to explore from places to eat and shop to McMorran Arena. The Learning Resource Center is great with access to computers and books. The only thing is I want to experience the university life so I'd rather go away to school. This one is great with a great education being close to home and affordable. If that's what you are looking for.
Bang for the buck
This college is very affordable. My first year I paid out of my pocket. No financial aid. Tuition is less than 3000 a year for me and the quality of the education is great.
Tips for prospective students
The only downfall for this college is close parking. There is close parking but it's in high demand. It's not bad to walk though. The area is nice and parking other places really doesn't put you too far away. Look around, find your own signature spot. I parked at the Bowl a Drome and now they actually fixed up the lot and bunches of people park there.
Great for these types of students
Students who want a comfortable education of quality will like this. Classes aren't too crowded. They're decently close together and you can find yourself in the same building for more than one class. There are nice hangout areas and you can be yourself and fit in. It's a nice outfit.

Am learning a lot
A lot of my classes are just like high school. Most of the material was stuff I've known for years, but that's why I decided to take my general studies here. The tuition is a lot cheaper than at a university with the same quality education. Even though I have not learned a lot of new stuff, I've learned things in different ways and from different people and it has been a great experience. This is only my semester so I hope to learn even more next semester.

The teachers are very helpful. I don't feel overwhelmed with homework, but I don't feel like I'm not doing anything either. The classes go at a good pace and it is pretty easy to catch up when I've missed something. The campus is nice, it's small and easy to find your way around. There are lots of places to hang out or study between classes.
Bang for the buck
SC4 is very cost efficient, especially for St.Clair County residents. It is a cheaper way to get your general classes out of the way before transferring to a university, or of just getting an associates or bachelor's degree. Although it's less expensive the classes and the professors are just as good as at any other school and because of the small class sizes you can talk to the professors on a one on one basis.
Tips for prospective students
If you live far away from the campus, try to take all you classes on as little days a week as possible, this saves you money in gas and time so you can use those other days to study or work a part time job to help you pay for school. Make sure to get registered early because classes fill up quickly, especially in the winter semester. If you want to speak with an advisor before registering you should set up an appointment a couple weeks before registration starts. If you plan on transferring to another school make sure classes will transfer before you take them so you don't waste your time and money. Read reviews and talk to other students about the classes and professors that you might be interested in. If you are planning on taking any online courses make sure it's a subject you are somewhat familiar with because you will be learning a lot of it independently. Although it saves you from driving to the school, online classes can be very demanding.
Great for these types of students
SC4 is great for student who are looking for a subtle transition into college life. The classes don't provide an overbearing workload but you'll learn to be responsible for doing your work, taking notes, and showing up for class. It's a great start for students who want to attend a university but need to save the money or build up a better academic record. The MACRAO program makes it easy to transfer to many of the universities in Michigan. It's also great for people who want to get an associates or bachelor's degree. SC4 has good programs to start you off in career of nursing, computer technologies, music, business and other programs. They provide an over all good education for an affordable cost.

Am learning a lot
I can practically feel my brain expanding when I'm sitting in class. I frequently find myself spouting facts from school and annoying my sisters with them. It's awesome.
Am enjoying being here
When I first got to SC4, I was like, Oh, GREAT, a community college. I thought it would basically be grade 13. But it's been a great experience so far. The professors I've had have been knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to work with students. Many of them are from areas outside of Port Huron or have traveled extensively. I've learned a lot and become more confident, and I think Port Huron is a beautiful city. The only real problem here is that there isn't enough parking, especially in the fall semester.
Bang for the buck
The bookstore is expensive if you buy new, but college bookstores always are. And lab classes are more expensive, of course. But the buildings are nice enough and there are a lot of resources available for students, especially in the CEM (science) Building.
Tips for prospective students
If you need to take contemporary biology, try to get Dave Sheldon. He's a great professor and he'll work with you. Also, students in classes that start around eleven or twelve will have the most trouble finding parking spaces. The McMorran lot is $2/day.
Great for these types of students
Undecided majors; people without a lot of money; people planning to get basic credits out of the way before a transfer (like me); people transferring into a science program - the science department is great.

SC4 is a great college. You can get your basic classes out of the way for a cheaper rate and then transfer to a bigger school. You can also go through a program under a differnt school under SC4 and for SC4's price of tuiton. It is also a very safe college.
Academic Rigor
I have not taken any classes there thus far, but I am really excited to start college at SC4.
Dorm Life
SC4 does not have any dorms, but a student advisor can help you find apartments by emailing a list of websites for apartments close to the college.
Food and Dining
I have not ate at the college yet, but I hear that it is very good by many sources.
What to do for fun
SC4 has many clubs and extracurricular activities to offer to all students. If someone wanted to start another club, all one needs is a couple people to join and walla! There is so much to do there.
Bang for the buck
SC4 is a cheap and nice college. Tuiton is very low and can be paid by almost anyone. Tuiton is nothing to complain about. I have not taken any classes yet, but I am sure the classes are the bang for the buck or worth it.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
I do not know of any yet.

I have learned a lot from St. Clair! The teachers are great and the campus is small and easy to get around. Everyone is very helpful and the school offers much help to all the students attending!

I feel the St. Clair is a safe learning environment for me. I have not had a bad teacher or class yet since attending.
Bang for the buck
St. Clair is one third of the cost of most Universities in Michigan. This gives you a chance to try to pay it off as you go!
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you sign up for classes early, and look up your teacher's ratings before getting into the class.
Great for these types of students
If you are ready to apply yourself to get a better education St. Clair is the school for you!
