South Central College Reviews
I am in my freshman year at South Central College in North Mankato, MN. So far, I absolutely love it. There's always something going on for the students and faculty to keep things fun during the semester. I love the smaller class sizes which allow for more engagement and more time to talk to the professor about things in class. The professors are amazing and really try to help us succeed!
South Central College has the advantage of small class sizes and professors engaged in what they do. If there is sufficient effort on your end, the education received is insightful and rigorous if you ask for more. Outside of academics, the counselor is the best resource on campus, and I encourage people who need guidance to schedule an appointment. I transferred to a top 20 US university after graduating with my associate degree, so there is nothing limiting anybody from enrolling here, despite any other connotation saying the opposite.
Of all the colleges I've been enrolled in, this is my third, I really like South Central College. The small class sizes and professors that want you to succeed make all the difference! I would recommend South Central College to anyone who wants a place where they can really succeed and grow as a person.
