Shelton State Community College is overall a great School to attend. The classes are very small; therefore, your teachers know you by name. There is one big building with all the classes inside it so your professors are typically easy to find if you need help.

Cydnee - 11/20/2018

Shelton State is a wonderful first step for students to take as they begin their college career. The small class sizes, knowledgeable professors, and accessible campus makes the transition from high school to college easier. By attending a smaller school like Shelton, students are able to understand and become used to how college works before going to a huge university.

Haleigh - 06/18/2018

I love Shelton State Community College. Its a relaxing environment besides finals week. The college professors are so nice and most have a good sense of humor. I have had a lot of classes there and there was only one professor I didn't enjoy. She didn't let us write anything down so I couldn't remember what we talked about after class. Other than her, the friendly vibes, extracurricular activities, and the creative surroundings make for a perfect learning location.

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

    There are many things that I wish I knew before. High school is very different from college. The students in college are very much more goal oriented and independent. Attending a college filled with people of various age groups, ethnicities, and educational preferences is a whole new learning experience for me. To have the abiltity to go back in time and tell myself a thing or two would be great. I would say, "College is going to be a great experience. It will sculpt you into the person you wish to become. You will transition into a more caring and responsible person. Transitioning from high school to college will not be the easiest thing you have done. Though the transtion from high school to college will be a bit bumpy, you can get through it. Success from now on is going to take pure dedication from you. You have to study double the time you studied in high school. And you're going to have to make a few sacrifices. Don't let anything or anyone stand in your path of success." These are the same words I would tell my children who may need a little encouragement and guidance.

    Get to know your teachers. They are human and they can be bias, even though they shouldn't be.

Teachers pay attention to those who look like they are trying their best.
