South Louisiana Community College is a small, helpful school. Nearly all of the professors which I have had so far are passionate about their field; if they are not, then they are at least extremely helpful and well informed. I've only ever had one professor (of about 15) that I had any issue with. Every other was happy to help in any way and a very informative teacher. The community at this school is great. There's easy access to tutors, the library, several computer labs, and every professor spends several hours each day in their office to help. I do not have much of a comparison to other schools, but our campus is great. There are two buildings, but most students only ever have to go between the three floors of the main building for class, studying, and eating. It's compact and very easy to navigate. There are also great outdoor areas (a patio area with shaded tables, a large fountain area, and a very wide open area of fields with 3 large, Louisiana oak trees.
Review South Louisiana Community College
Teachers make the class! I have gotten some excellent teachers, they go out of their way to make sure you are getting an education that prepares you for the future and opens your mind to other perspectives. But I've also had professors that don't care as much as you do and that's sad because teachers are supposed to meet you halfway. Overall, I've had an excellent experience.
I still have not graduated high school, so I'm currently pursuing an Associate's degree in general studies. This is less focused on my preferred major (biology/botany) than I would hope, but I still learn something related to my career in every course. The workload is not that heavy at SLCC. There are biology and chemistry labs to assist in my learning and understanding of the two subjects. There are many job opportunities at SLCC, such as becoming a tutor.
