Another name for ASCC is Coastal Alabama Community College which is confusing sometimes. Overall the staff at the college is amazing. They are extremely helpful.

Alabama Southern (Coastal Alabama Community College) is a very academically advanced community college. The professors at large try their best to teach the material needed for the class to everyone as thorough as possible. They are always available during their office hours, which they would prefer you to email to schedule an appointment for a meeting but also if not available in their office they are just as helpful via email. Not only do you have the help of the professors but they also have student support services that offers tutoring services for anyone that needs it free of charge. The advisors are super nice and are always willing to help you. Every faculty and staff personnel treats you so nice and honestly they treat you as if you are their own child. It's a small campus but it the students make it feel like a home away from home. Throughout the year, they have an amazing amount of fun things to do from joining the clubs the first week of school, to welcome week, to movie nights on the lawn, to haunted pathways, to volunteer drives, to just about anything you could think of. Going to Coastal Alabama was the best decision I've ever made. I enjoy the two years that I went there and would definitely recommend the college to others. I definitely would recommend it money wise. Coastal has a variety of scholarships and aid opportunities. They try their best to help people financially as much as possible. Even if you are transferring they give you many opportunities to get transfer scholarships from a club or organization that the have available. They have a lot of work study jobs also for the students. Coastal is by far the best community college that I've attended.

The school is great overall if you want to go to a small school. The professors are easy to talk to and eager to help their students unlike University Professors. Alabama Southern has a great atmosphere. Mostly everyone gets along well with each other.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to do not take study hours lightly. The free time you have do not use it texting and partying around, use that time to work on the mistakes you have made on work you have donein class. The mistakes you have made on subjects in class, you will make them in college if you do not take the time out your day to correct them. I would even tell myself to be more ambitious in trying to find a way to succeed instead of depending on people. I would say you need to strive to get where you need to be in your educational life. You can not depend on everyone to hold your hand and help you through every downfall you have, you are going to need to learn and be able to handle things like the young adult you are about to become in less time than you think. Its time to grow up into an adult and handle adult situations on your own. Senior year is not the time to give up on trying to succeed, Senior year is just the beginning of becoming successful.

  7. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    That a GPA is really not that important in high school as it is in college. In college C's and D's are nowhere near as valualbe as they are in high school. Every grade truly counts. My GPA is close to a 2.5 because of the very tough math classes I am taking. You have to strive to make A's and B's in college especially with four credit classes if you want to maintain a 3.0 or better. Most importantly, I wish I would have known that classes are over an hour long, lol.
