South Puget Sound Community College Reviews

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 overall experience thus far has been excellent. The teachers I have taken have been passionate about there subjects and for the most part have been teaching for quite sometime and seem to love it! This passion makes classroom time more fun and the subjects more interesting. Additionally SPSCC offers online courses which is very helpful when you work full time. It is nice to be able to take advantage of the flexibility an online class offers so that you can get ahead with your school classes yet keep up with work and home life as well. Overall, fabulous school that I would highly recommend!
I liked the convenience of South Puget Sound Community College and he cost was reasonable. I will graduate from SPSCC with no debt and transfer to a 4 year University in he fall. I was a little frustrated with the push of hybrid and online classes. I learn better from instructor led classes and often times my only option for a class was either a hybrid class or an online class. I struggled with my Calculus class only being twice a week. I would have benefited from daily instruction. I felt I had to learn a lot on my own vs. from the instructor. It was nice that the college has two campuses - one in Lacey and the other in Olympia. I have attended both campuses. The staff was always helpful and I was able to get my questions answered quickly. I would recommend SPSCC to students who want to keep college expenses down and transfer to a 4 year college or university. Overall, my experience has been good. The college has tutoring help available and encourages study groups.
