This is my second college I have attended, and by far it beats many other colleges in quality and resources provided, as well as beautiful scenery. There are murals, gardens and landmarks everywhere on the main Gainesville campus. There are so many insightful and intelligent professors to learn from both academically and on a personal level. The clubs are also really fun to be a part of. There is a new club formed practically every semester. For the comparatively low tuition costs, this college provides you with so many opportunities to network, add to your resume, learn and grow. Although I am not disabled, I do recognize that Santa Fe is also very welcoming and accommodating to those with disabilities. There is a special club for students on the Autism Spectrum. Also important to note, we have our own police department right on campus, accessible at any time!

It was PERFECT for me! Santa Fe College gives so much grace to students who stumble in the beginning of the college career. And I’m not meaning they pass you without you even trying, but they give you the resources to improve yourself. It was definitely God’s plan(no Drake reference) for me to attend Santa Fe fresh out of high school. The staff and instructors are so sweet, at least the ones I was taught under. And the students are just as a friendly. Everybody is motivated to continue their careers and work really hard. I’m happy to have received my AA degree from them.
Santa Fe has been a wonderful experience overall! I love all my professors and the campus environment is always so friendly and welcoming. My first semester for me personally was a little tough with family issues arising that semester and adjusting to the new city. But, my last few months have been great knowing I have professors who actually care if I succeed.
