Am learning a lot
I am currently a part time student and taking my basics. My teachers understand the busy lives of everyone and are willing to work with you as long as your willing to learn. I am learning events that happened in history that I already learned, but it is in more detail and I am learning more about them then I expected. State College of Florida is definitely a place to start where you can learn quite a bit, for a cheaper price than a university.
Am enjoying being here
I love being a student at SCF. It goes at my pace with school work and activities. There are so many clubs that it actually was hard for me to decide, but I chose two and I love them and I am an active member in both. We have a cafe that has WiFi and yummy muffins and I always go there during my breaks between classes.All my teachers are nice and they understand that people work and have hectic busy lives and they are more than willing to help you out if you help yourself out first.
Bang for the buck
Definitely a bang for your buck. This school is inexpensive and you will learn just as much if not more than a major University. plus with all the scholarships out there it makes it even easier to attend. SCF also has their own scholarship foundation.
Tips for prospective students
Dont ever be late to class. Be ready to learn. Be more than willing to make friends or class buddies in each class( it will come in hand when you do miss a class or two) and more important: love what your learning and become involved in all the activities that are offered at SCF.
Great for these types of students
SCF is the place for those who cant afford a University, who want to be in a small town(which has a beach nearby), and want to work and go to school at the same time. you can be part time or full time or even just take one or two classes, what ever fits YOUR schedule. and the counselors are there to help you, so ask when you need help deciding a major or just what to do with school.

College is college. Not everyone's dream is to go to the local college, but you will still get the degree you can get anywhere else here. Plus SCF makes it super simple to transfer.
Am enjoying being here
I absolutely LOVE having my own room so close to school! People are friendly, and the staff is always willing to help.
Bang for the buck
If this is your local college, you do not pay for housing, meal plans, or super expensive out of state fees.
Tips for prospective students
Become best friends with your guidance counselor! Though the website has all the information you can get, questions of your future will always linger in your mind. Everyday i wake up knowing exactly what I'm working for because of the staff at SCF.
Great for these types of students
If you want to talk about your grades to your professors SCF is perfect. The classes are not crowded and teachers have time for you.
