This college takes your money and does not provide the instructions you pay for! Teachers stopped classes after 30 to 40 min or sooner and told students to watch links on the internet. Struggling students had no chances to get help as teaches avoided class interaction! Paid for campus activities while being an online student refusing to undergo weekly covid 19 testing. No activities for online students, social isolation and uncaring staff at this college. Only money hungry office staff at this college! Worst college ever went to! Just bad and non caring teachers who can't teach online and avoid student interactions. Teacher never bothered to stay in zoom call lesson for more than 30 min at a time, when normal lessons are 50 min to over an hour! Did not check on students as they used to and charged for full tuition but received part time. Learning on your own experience only!

The college is great academic wise and most of the professors are usually supportive and always easily accessible. They do have several activities going on, but they don't always get the imformation to you in a timely manner. On-housing campus isn't all that it's hyped up to be and can be quite costly. The food isn't great, especially after the first week after classes have started and you'll get tired of eating the same thing over and over everyday. If you have a car, you can easily just drive down the road to find several affordable restaurants nearby.

Spartanburg Methodist College is great school! I was doubtful at first since it was a small private college, but it turned out to be pretty amazing. The school size is small, but I really like that because you can really get to know people on a more intimate level versus a very large school. The faculty and staff are very helpful and they take your opinions into consideration. The class size is a typical size with less than 25 people. But it really depends on what kind of class you're taking. But I highly recommend this college! It's a great place to start!

I think SMC is an overall decent college, and I think it is definitely a good place to start out one's college career. It's a good 2-year college with reasonable tuition and lots of available financial aid. The professors are all very nice, friendly, and willing to help outside the classroom to make sure you understand the material. Lots of available opportunities to get academic help. The food tends to be hit-and-miss, and as a commuting student I find it rather expensive. I would recommend commuting if you can, as the area around the campus is not a good neighborhood. Unfortunately, if you're hoping for a strong Christian campus community with conservative morals, you'll be disappointed. Lots of LGBT students and people who drink and do drugs and have foul mouths. Overall, though, it's a satisfactory college and I do recommend it.

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

    I am a non-traditional student who unlike most of my fellow classmates, have a little bit of "real world" knowledge. If I could go back in time, I do not believe I would speak to myself. By having a conversation with myself, what might I affect? Would my life be different from what it is now? I am not unlike most people when I think to myself and wonder what I would like to have better in my life but in doing so, one must take stock on what is good and be appreciative. In speaking to myself in the past, I could make my present state of affairs less desirable. I believe on playing the hand I have been dealt because the next hand could be worse.
