Southern State is a great and outstanding Community College.

I have not yet started college and I already feel welcome! The staff is so nice and friendly, the resources they have available are very useful. The staff is also very helpful with whatever you need.
Southern State Community College is a great place to start out for people like me. I am a CCP student and that means I partake in both high school and college courses. Southern State is very understanding with high school students and actually takes the time to work through problems. I find that their staff is extremely helpful and kind. The classes that I have taken so far are structured very well. I had come to find out that it was the right amount of challenge that I needed to be able to keep up with my work, but to also being learning at the same time. The only thing that I personally feel like it needs to change is the timeliness. I find it to be quite often that the college will be very late when giving information out to the students. I have had to deal with many issues regarding the college waiting until last minute to give out important details. However, the school is a very good place to start out with and I am glad that it will be a part of my college career.
