Most courses are worth taking because you will get something out of it. The professors are great here at SAC; they are almost always willing to help you with anything you need. SAC has so many courses that students can take and that gives students the chance to choose what they want to do. I also believe that SAC has so many students that come because they have so many different choices that most community colleges don't have. The class sizes are absolutely great! The classes at SAC are small, kind of like a high school and you can have a better one on one with the professor if you need it.
Review Your College
I expected the online courses to be more challenging in both understanding and dedication, but was relieve to notice how involved and uncomplicated I found them to be. The instructors are very communicable and keep in touch in a variety of ways in order to appease the stress of working outside of a class setting and without the face to face. Classmates are also reachable through discussions, emails, and collaborations, all set up on a student platform within each course. Weekly discussions for points are offered within each class page monitored for appropriateness and grading value in order to allow a better feel of connection. Professors are both engaging and encouraging, and are fairly easily contacted for better direction and clarification. Wonderful experiences all around.
SAC is a good college to get students a taste of college classes and settled into the college experience. I would advise any incoming students to make sure they do things early, i.e. register for classes, meet with an advisor, buy books, straighten out things with business office/ financial aid. Take advantage of the programs available such as the Honors Academy, Phi Theta Kappa, student life events, scholarships and in house workshops. There is plenty going on during the semester especially in Loftin Student Center. It definitely saves you money if you're looking to transfer, but be sure to check if your classes with transfer to the institution in mind. Just like at any other location you will find individuals and staff that are cranky and those that will go above and beyond to help you out. Step on to campus prepared for both characters and a lot of patience!
