Good instructors and environment. My math teacher, Mr. Woodruff is my favorite teacher. I am not great at math, but he was patient and helped me to not only pass both of my algebra classes, but ace them. The campus is clean and has plenty of parking.

Madison - 05/01/2020

Overall, it is a great school. I believe that I have learned more at this college than any other academic setting in my life. The teachers push to, but never more than you can handle. In addition, the food is not too bad; they make a Cobb salad to die for! Before the shelter in place, massage students used to come to the campus and give 10 minute stress relieve back rubs too. I have enjoyed my time at this school.

Lilli - 11/26/2019

I think it's a wonderful junior college, especially if you live in nearby cities or towns. I took a few classes here while I was in high school and everyone was so accepting and kind, the school as a whole really made me feel welcomed and loved. Wouldn't mind going back to take more classes!

DOMINIC - 10/02/2019
