The education is pretty good for what is, the teachers are pretty hit or miss I'll be honest. Some of them are so kind and helpful and the class is great, but others are just miserable to have a class with. The canteen and library are great, and I have made plenty of wonderful friends!

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 like South Piedmont Community college because it is only a few minutes away from home, affordable, and it has a small student to teacher ratio. Other than that it is only 5 minutes away from restaurants, clean, diverse and etc.
