South Louisiana Community College Reviews

Since the recent pandemic, all college courses converted to online courses. Since I've taken online courses in the past, I didn't have much of a hard time. However, I think that each student has their own way of learning class material and the instructors play a significant role in how effectively we grasp what is taught. Luckily, I had amazing instructors that provided extra course materials such as notes, diagrams and even videos to help us. Overall, my online experience was great!

Over the past 8 years, I enrolled at South Louisiana Community College twice. Overall, my experience there as a student has been a great one. The instructors and staff are awesome. They help out as much as they can. I just wish that there were more parking spaces. I know that they have expanded parking areas, but as more students enroll, the need for more parking spaces increases. Most importantly, I think that the school should implement more programs or informational sessions for students that are interested in the nursing programs. Students that aren't admitted into the nursing programs are usually left to fend for themselves after receiving denial letters. For this reason, I decided to transfer to another college that will provide me with the necessary education, skills and tools to become an amazing nurse in a society where nurses are needed desperately.
I have have taken both lecture and online courses at South Louisiana Comunity College. I liked both courses. The lecture courses, you get more interaction with the instructor and other students. You also get to ask questions right then and there if you don't understand something. The online courses are more convenient for students who work or have kids or anything along those lines. You have to be more involved in online classes, such as checking Canvas or student email at least once or twice a day. You also have to email your instructor and wait for a response, if you have a question on an assignment. I would recommend either online or lecture at South Louisiana Community College and take either lecture or online, whichever best fits your schedule. South Louisiana Community College is an overall community college that I would highly recommend to any future student or parent even if he/she wants to presure a 4-year degree.
