South Puget Sound Community College Reviews
SPS is your typical community college. The campus is pretty and located in a not-so-busy part of Olympia, Washington. It is close to restaurants and the mall and theater. I have loved almost all of the professors that I have had classes with. The online classes I have taken have been great and pretty easy to keep up with. It is an extremely liberal college. Most of Olympia is so that is not a surprise. If that is something that works for you, then this is the place to be!
Really committed to helping students succeed! Lots of free support services for the students to become involved in. There are virtual online tutor support staff as well as free face-to-face tutorship on campus. I find the campus to be quite lovely and nicely nestled in flora and fauna and beautiful evergreen trees. The teachers can be very rigorous as they take their field of study seriously. I definitely recommend this school especially if you're thinking about making a switch to the 4 year university right next door to SPSCC called Evergreen College as they have a sort of buddy system with the 2 year SPSCC.
My college experience at South Puget Sound has been amazing. I have two on campus positions that work around my class schedule and off campus job, and I'm an active on campus. I love my college!
