SPSCC is the community college closest to the city capital. It is kind of hidden so you have to look for it a bit. Parking is great as it is free and all over. Many of the instructors are easily accessible and can be contacted easily. SPSCC has some great advisors and there are lots of groups to join if you want to.

Great Community College experience! This school was everything a community college should be: exposure to as many subjects as possible to see which ones spark your interest for the future. I always found my professors to be incredibly knowledgeable and invested and passionate about their subjects. My overall experience boils down to, I'd attend this school again in a heart beat

Lauren

I loved my first two years of college. The professors are fantastic. They are genuine, caring, professional and always available to help. The campus is fresh, clean, well maintained and has excellent resources for all your needs - counseling, academics, credits, etc. They have people to assist at all times for core subjects (math, English). I feel safe there and welcome.

Jessica

I love going here! The professors are helpful and passionate in their teaching, and the student life is very active and cultivated. Parking can be difficult around early to late afternoon, but multiple lots are available. Good quality library and help centers for students.

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

    If I could go back in time to when I was a high school senior, I think I would tell myself to relax a little. As a high school honor student, I was very stressed for going off to college, for a number of reasons. I thought the transition from small high school classes of students that rarely cared about the work and where constantly shooting glances at the clock waiting for the dismissal bell, to a fifty-student lecture hall where I would have to take constant notes on the professor's lectures to pass huge exams, would be a nightmare. I thought wandering around different buildings across an expanse of winding campus paths would also be a major stressor. However, once I got to community college, I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere of the entire campus was much more relaxed than I thought; in fact, much more relaxed than high school. So, if I was able to go back in time, I would tell myself these things. I would tell myself to keep an open mind; the students at college are much different than high school students. I would tell myself, that I would be fine.

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

    Its so expensive. Every quarter I have to buy new books. It gernerally cost about $400.00 a quarter to buy the required books. You can sale them back to the school for pennies on the dollar or try to nagotiate with other students . Its a pretty big pain and when your in school every penny counts its amazing to buy a book for $185.00 wow really? do they need to be that expensive? It seems pretty outrageous to me.

Now I have to retrain myself to get back on track and succeed in my son's eyes as well as myself.
