My experience with Southern Crescent has been pretty good. There were multiple things that I needed to know, and wouldn't know to ask for that they didn't tell me. For instance, no one told me I needed to go to the library to get my ID, or that I even needed to go get an ID at all for that matter. That being said, the staff is very nice, they are not purposefully not telling you these things. The food is okay, but I'm a picky eater so I can't really judge too accurately. There are no Dorms, but that's to be expected seeing as it's a community college. The diversity is great, there is a great mix of genders and races. They only have a basketball team if I'm not mistaken, but I've never seen them. There are plenty of good stores in the area and, considering that the hope scholarship and pell grant got me into school for free, I've still got plenty of money to spend there. All in all, you get what you pay for, a decently good school for a decently good price.

What I personally like about this school is that they are always checking on you to make sure you have everything done, meaning as for example to do your financial aid. They give you a constant reminder to make sure you do it so you can succeed and finish your classes. Also teachers with this school are very lenient. They are willing to work with you if you are late with an assignment ot forget to turn something in.
Southern Crescent is an excellent technical college for students who are not quite ready yet to venture into the more rigorous universities such as Georgia Southern or Georgia State University. Southern Crescent offers a nice atmosphere to help students transition from the preparations from high school into the atmosphere of a college. This atmosphere helps students feel much more comfortable in preparing them to attend bigger universities to broaden their horizons. The campus offers a nice locale, effective security, and ample diversity to help make students feel more comfortably at home, and the professors are very lively to where students feel comfortable building bonds with them as they venture further in their secondary education.
