I loved attending South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. It was a great college experience. This college is a smaller college in a small town in Texas. My classes were smaller than a university, the biggest class I had contained 32 students. This small student to professor ratio helped me be the best student I could be because the professors know each student and are always willing to help. It was nice to walk around campus and see familiar faces. South Plains has a great student body and has a good vibe around campus. Campus is also smaller, which makes it easier to walk and enough time to get to each class. Going to SPC was the best decision I could have made. Go Texans!

For my first semester at a community college, I would say it is fantastic! The advisors help you register for your classes while also giving you feedback on how you should approach it. The professors are everything I could possibly ask for! They do help you whenever you need it and they understand you in a way where you can always go back to them over and over again. The campus itself is ideal for anyone who is looking for a smaller campus but with all of the perks still attached without feeling the need to get a map. Overall, this is a great start towards pursuing your education without a doubt!
I take Dual Credit classes through South Plains! I’ve taken 3 over the past few years- psychology, professional communication, and U.S. government. Even though I take the online version of the classes, the professors are great and easy to access!
