Great school! I’ve taken several courses through SPC, and all of my professors have taken my success seriously. When I've had concerns about the material, many of them have done their best to work with me. The courses are very affordable; they are much cheaper than the same courses at 4-year institutions, so it is easier on the wallet. Their dorms were nice, and there were security measures in place to keep residents safe. The campus also has their own police force.
SPC also has several student activities, like movie night in the Student Center or game night in the dorms. For those who work out, the Fitness Complex is a nice facility with equipment for all workouts, and there are often free weekly fitness classes. The town of Levelland is not a very pretty town, which may bother some students considering attending SPC. It has everything a college student might need off-campus - fast-food, Walmart, etc. - and the campus itself is nice, but the town around it doesn’t look as nice.

South Plains College is an amazing college to attend! If you need help in anything such as what classes to take, the pace that you are on as far as your grades, or just wanting to find out information on the schools' programs, they have a wonderful staff that will have no problem helping you in those areas and so much more. The advising center has no problem in even helping you choose your career path. If you have absolutely no idea what you what to do in regards to your major, or even if you just want to change your major they will be more than happy to help you. The teachers at South Plains College interact with you a lot more. If you are failing or if they notice that you are not doing as good as you should, then they will most definitely tell you instead of you just failing the class. The professors will help you in whatever area they see you need help in. Again South Plains College is a great choice for you to attend school! I'm proud to be a Texan!
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!
