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!
