I love attending school here because the professors are all very helpful and devote the majority of their free time to helping students. They are always quick to reply to emails and make students feel welcome and “at home” while going to school here. I really appreciate the effort that the entire administration puts toward making the students feel like this is the right choice for them.

I am a high school senior taking classes at Big Sandy and it has been the best experience of all four years of my high school career. I love Big Sandy, the opportunities they have, the staff, the people - It's all wonderful.
Big Sandy Community and Technical College has really prepared me for going to a University. I am about to get my Associate in Science Degree and I'm super grateful to attend here. Class sizes are small meaning that everyone in class gets to know one another and professors truly care about the students' education. I have learned so much by attending here and I'll be sad when I graduate. The people and education opportunities truly make going here worth while.
