Isothermal Community College is a great 2-year college located in Spindale, NC. I am taking the Associate of Applied Sciences in Advertising & Graphic Design and the instructors are very helpful and really want to see us (the students) succeed. Since the class sizes are smaller, each instructor can have more frequent 1-on-1 conversations with each student to help them in their respective classes. Even this small community college has an up to date and very useful graphic design lab that is completely accessible to anyone enrolled in that subject. If you are a legal resident of either Rutherford or Polk County, you are eligible for the Powers Scholarship which will pay for all tuition and fees so that you will only need to pay for supplies and textbooks. All in all, if you are looking for an affordable and a great community, Isothermal Community College will be the right place for you if you live around the area.
