I've been studying here for a year so far as an international student and I really like the education I've received as well as the people I've met. The instructors I've had so far ranged from "good" to "amazing and inspirational," being dedicated to their work and supportive of students; I’ve had some great office hour conversations with a few of the tenured instructors. The tutors, counselors, and other staff members such as student life organizers and those who work at the Center for International Education have also been very friendly and helpful. The student body is very diverse and I've made friends with people from different ethnic groups. The campus is beautiful, too!

It would be great if the student clubs were more active and if the cafeteria can offer more food options during non-lunch hours. Others have also said they wish there are fewer high school students attending classes here (via a dual enrollment program). Overall, though, I've really enjoyed my experience here.

South always welcomes students from everywhere around the world. At South, students can freely express themselves regardless of races, sex, religions,.. The Center of International office holds many activities during the quarters, from volunteering to playing games. South campus is the largest campus in the Seattle Colleges. My instructors here at South are really friendly. They always smile to their students while walking around the campus.
I've learned many different cultures from my friends here. They are from Mongolia, Korea, Japan, China, Bangladesh, America,..
To me, South is the great place!
My only qualm with this college is that there should be sports clubs or teams, the only one I've ever heard of here is the boy's soccer club. There should be more opportunity to become involved in sports. Also! A choir club or a singing group would be fabulous as well, since I'm a singer myself, I'm sure other people who love music and love singing will love a club like that. Other than that I really enjoy coming to classes here, it's a peaceful campus that is very close to my home.
