I love the way the professors treat their students. They take time to make sure everyone has a chance to learn what we need in order to further our education in our area of study. They don't rush or try to hurry through the curriculum. The professors ask us questions along with us asking so the class is always teaching and learning from one another. I admit I was terrified to start school, since I am the first one in my family to ever attend college but the professors have really made it less scary. I am thankful for south plains college and I can't wait to graduate a Texan!
Review South Plains College
For the past two semesters of attending South Plains College, I have had a wonderful experience. Originally, I was going to attend Washington State University, but the tuition cost was too expensive. I am from Lubbock, and moved back last August. I submitted my application last minute, and the school was very accepting. The majority of the classes were occupied, but the SPC staff still managed to get me in a couple classes. My favorite thing about attending South Plains is the professors. They care about the students so much, they are willing to help us one on one. The classes aren't too difficult, and we have many resources for getting tutoring. I am on a three year associates degree nursing program at South Plains. Possibly in the future, I will transfer to a University. I am thankful for the experience and education South Plains offers. I am looking forward to the next few years!
This is my second year, fourth semester at South Plains College and I would never trade it for any other school! In fact, if South Plains College was a four year school, I would definitely be going the whole four years. It is a small environment compared to most College's or Universities. For me coming from such a small town, it ended up being the perfect adjustment. The professors here are also wonderful. They are always wanting the students to succeed to the best of their abilities and most of the time are willing to work one-on-one with you if you ask for the help. If the teachers do not have the time, there is always a tutor in each building that is willing to give you the help that you deserve in order for you to pass your class and to fully understand your studies. I would highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to come to college or to transfer to somewhere different!
