South Piedmont Community College Reviews

South Piedmont Community College has four campuses, but the two main ones are in Monroe and Polkton. I attend the Monroe campus, and I can say the school is very safe, with 24 hour security guards. The teachers are very professional and nice and really care about your success as a student. On the downside, there are a fair amount of clubs but most of them don't have announcements. I tried to participate in one club but I was never informed when the meetings were. There are a lot of food choices right up the road from the school, which is great. There is also a school cafeteria, which serves fairly good food at decent prices. As far as classes go, they have a good variety of seated and online classes. However, because the school is so small, the classes that are specific to a certain degree, such as business or culinary arts, are very limited. If you are looking for a small school to get a good education without all of the chaos of a university, this is the place for you.

I have genuinely enjoyed my experience at South Piedmont Community College so far. With each semester, it seems as if the environment of the school grows, as I get aquainted with more people and start to feel at home in the small community that is my school. I love the professors, and I have also met some cool people at my school that make the atmosphere very fun and enjoyable. If I could change something about South Piedmont, I would make the campus builder to make room for more students and facilities.
I took the EMT course through South Piedmont in Monroe and loved it. However I took pre-calc and the teacher was not good at all. He felt as if everyone should be a math major and consistently made me feel stupid. I also took an online class, ART-111, through the college and the teacher had no idea how to run a class.
