South Florida State College is a relatively small school compared to other schools.

Help is always available to anyone who is need. Class sizes are decently sized which makes the classroom environment comfortable. Overall South Florida State College is a great school!

My overall experience with South Florida State College is simply amazing! I am stunned by the diversity and the accomplishments of many there. Mostly, I am amazed with the professors there. They maintain an well thought out plan and execution for students like me.
Thus far, I have enjoyed my experience at South Florida State College. I have found that most professors are always willing to do their best to help you succeed in their course. Out of the 50+ credit hours I have earned so far, I have only found one or two professors that I simply did not feel worked well with my learning experience. As far as a diverse learning program, it is evident that South Florida State College lacks the resources to supply every student with a wide variety of opportunities for his or her major/career choice. I am looking to transfer to a University in the Summer or Fall of 2018. As of right now, the college lacks some course recommendations which would help me excel in the Engineering programs at other Universities. That being said, I do feel that SFSC is a good local choice for many students who are looking to go right into the work force as soon as possible.
