My overall opinion of Sinclair Community College is all of the faculty that I have come into contact with have been nothing but helpful. Also, I love the diversity of the students here. If you are not wanting to be in debt it seems like you will never get out this is a great school to start off your first two years. Also, you can come to this college for summer to save money just make sure they transfer to the college you go to other semesters.

I did go to Sinclair but I transferred my credits. I think that this college is a very affordable amazing place to learn. The teachers are willing to help you succeed and they give you everything you need to do so. It is a great place to make friends and a great place to meet new people. To me, the library is the best place to be at Sinclair. That's just my opinion. If you go to Sinclair, you'll be leaving with a great education.

Taylor

I love it here, small classes let you get to know people and professors are attentive and professional. there are plenty of clubs and activities going on and I love going to see the plays and new art around campus. they are always working to improve the student experience. I have met some cool people and always feel safe on campus. There are plenty of food choices on brown st. just 5 mins from campus.

Montana

It was obviously not my first choice, it was actually my last option due to some unforeseen financial issues. It is a community college so I do not believe you get the traditional college experience especially if you go to the regional campuses. You get what you pay for and that does not involve a whole lot of activities outside the classroom. The staff is super kind and extremley helpfull though so that is the one upside to Sinclair. But I feel like if you just need to learn and absolutely nothing else than this is the college for you.

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

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, knowing what I know now about the above mentioned, I would tell myself that I was making the right choice by planning to attend Sinclair Community College. I used to be down on myself because I was not going to a 4-year university right away, like most of my friends, but I did not yet know for sure which field I wanted to enter. Had I gone to a 4-year right away, I would have wasted thousands of dollars my single mom and I both had worked hard for. Because I was upset with myself for not going to a university immediately after high school, I would tell myself not to worry because I am going far and achieving dreams of mine...without wasting money, which makes it that much sweeter!
