I am a student from out of town. It has been extremely difficult for me to fit in on campus. It seems there is mostly military, married men or very young but married men who don't want to make new friends. The professors seem to favor the local and military men and that leaves me out in the cold. I have struggled with my studies and feel I'm very much alone. However, I have had great support from the support center on campus. I live off campus so that makes it difficult to be involved in anything happening on campus. I would say to other students that they should be prepared to be on your own and don't miss a class period if you don't have a buddy.

Small class sizes mean lots of opportunity for one-to-one discussion with professors. The faculty are well-qualified educators and the advisers truly care. The personal attention means you will get that 'kick-in-the-****' you need when you are flailing. It also means, if you let staff know you need help, you WILL GET help. I rely on grant money, but the cost of education here is super LOW, and the value of the education received is super HIGH! I enjoy coming to classes. All this, and a beautiful campus on the water.
Nice community college with a beautiful view on the water. Very friendly staffing and professors. The area has currently experience a hurricane and the college has been very flexible and efficient in lending a helping hand with supplies, food, etc. They are always holding events and offering food free for students. Class room sizes are also small for more personal and one-on-one with the professor for a better learning experience.
