Salem Community College Reviews
This college was about a 30 minute drive for me. The small, easy to navigate campus was convenient. There was always plenty of parking. Most of the teachers were excellent: nice, wanted to see you succeed, reasonable grading, and very good at teaching the material. Other times you did not learn anything and the class was a waste of time. The largest class I had only had 24 people in it. There were always activities going on and sports are also offered though I never participated in anything. I had a discounted rate due to being a high school student but even without this the school still isn't too expensive.
Throughout high school and even after graduation, I dreaded the thought of attending a community college. There is a very well known stigma against community colleges. However, financially, I had no other choice but to attend Salem Community College. I graduated after studying liberal arts for two years to transfer to a four year college. Overall, my experience was thoroughly enjoyable. I had enlightening professors and always interacted with knowledgeable staff members. My classmates and I were mostly on the same path - the transfer to a four year college, so there was a sense of comradery on campus. The only thing I felt was absent for SCC, was the presence of on campus housing, even though it is a community college, that is one experience that I wanted. However, my general experience was good.
Salem is a great school for the academic programs. If you want a good education, you're in the right place. Just don't expect much else. The surrounding area is very empty. There are some extracurricular clubs and activities, and an athletics department is being built.
