South Puget Sound Community College Reviews

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!

For anyone who is searching for an outstanding school in Olympia Washington, I suggest you go to South Puget Sound Community College. Not only is it rated one of the top 50 community colleges in the nation but it is also has fantastic professors, dynamic learning environments, and a wonderful scenic campus. The classes are well organized and the campus is friendly to all people from every walk of life. It is easily accessible from the highway and is near West-Olympia which has a fantastic food selection and shopping options. The Campus is very accessible for wheel-chair disabled people, and is a clean and very safe campus for anyone who is looking to have a safe and dynamic learning environment.
As a community college transfer from El Camino College in Torrance, I had an amazing welcoming experience. Advisors were friendly, helped me figure out what last classes to take to transfer to a university, and even guided me throughout the school!
