What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great college for students living in Highlands County. It has the same classes and activities like any other university, just smaller and cheaper. It is a great size for students that do not like huge campuses and I believe that it is a great start for students who are also willing to transfer! I prefer just to take the two years at South Florida and then transfer to finish off your degrees at a University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school, it is an easy way to go to college without having to worry or stress about everything you do when attending a major university! I would recommend this college to anyone who does not feel that they are ready for the huge university leap. The staff and teachers are always very helpful and are always there for what you need! I wish they had more activities such as a competitive basketball, lacrosse team or even things like a dance team, since that’s one of my passions, I think it would help bring more activity to the campus life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, I loved South Florida State College. I took my collegiate classes at the Avon Park and Hardee campuses. All my professors were very knowledgeable about what they were teaching and allowed us to do things on our own. I enjoyed that the professors did not hold our hands and let us sink or swim. The experiences there have only helped me grow and be prepared university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SFSC was a great school to start off at, because it’s has small class size. For first timer, you won’t get too overwhelmed; yet you’ll still get the experience of being an university. Because of the small class, the teachers are better able to assist the students individually. The teachers also have set office hours and numbers that can be used to reach them. If that doesn’t work with you’re schedule, you can feel free to call them, and they’ll set up a time that works. Everything was easy to get onboard with, and it was overall a great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

South Florida State College is a great transition for those who want a college education but who do not wish to pay a fortune or be far from home. The professors are super supportive and are very much available for any questions students may have. I think this college overall is a great solution for students who wish to have smaller class sizes and help from their professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I am only a dual enrollment student at SFSC, I feel as though I have been able to expierence it’s full aspect. There is no housing and since I am dual enrollment I do not have a major. This campus allows students to connect with other students and teachers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love going to SFSC, not only is it near my hometown but it takes me 15 minutes to get there and to get home. They have the convenience for the time of classes that are needed for me and not to mention counselors who know you so well and are able to help you know what classes are best for you. Also the ease of online classes when not able to take classes on campus.

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

I have gained a change in perspective from my college experience. My Master's program is held at a small Christian school, with a very supportive intimate group that has quickly become my family. The things I am learning has reminded me why I went for a degree in teaching years ago, before the economy created a teacher hiring freeze in my area. Working at a hotel to pay the bills while being rejected from instructor interviews time after time was slowly killing my spirit. My heart belongs in a classroom, whether I am a teacher or a student. Returning to school gave me the courage to follow my heart and take a leap of faith. With the support and prayers from my teachers and peers, I quit my hotel job. Before the Master's, I did not have the strength or the trust in my own heart to make a life altering choice like that. On top of the change of perspective, I am gaining confidence as a teacher and leader. I am proud of my current college experience, and grateful for the lessons I am learning that go beyond the textbooks.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing here is the lack of communication...They lost my transcripts for the AA program several times trying to get them to the University Center building on the same campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This is wonderful for any student, there are four year degrees offered as well as the traditional AA. The small classes, caring instructors, and variety of activities make it more attractive than a large school. I went to both New York and D.C. with clubs I belonged to while there. People who love an intimate class experience will love to attend this school.
