Southside Community College is a small college that is constantly improving itself. The classes are small and it has a more one-on-one atmosphere when you need help from professors. In my experience everyone was friendly and helpful. It's also very affordable. My financial aid covered all my expenses. Southside has a few clubs as well. I was in the gaming club there and the Honor Society. Another big plus is that they participate in the guaranteed acceptance agreement program! Ultimately my experience there was wonderful!

SVCC is a wonderful place to transition to a 4 year college, especially if you are uncertain of a definite career. The entire staff is so friendly, helpful and cheerful. The college is smaller and more personable than a large University, this helps me to prepare and get excited about my transfer and my future! I truly love all the professors and everyone who works there. The campus is beautiful and many community events takes place there. It has been my pleasure to attend and I am blessed for this opportunity located near my home town. SVCC was also chosen for financial purposes , because money for college is a struggle. I am excited to get started this semester and see what the year has in store for me. My first year ended with a 3.75gpa and I will strive to do even better!
I go to the SVCC in Alberta. Although it's a bit of drive from where I live, the mileage is worth everything! I absolutely love the campus. There's a tennis court open to students anytime, the pond is a perfect place to study under warm weather, and our hiking trail involves some of our most exciting adventures. Parking is simple (no fee necessary), thus you won't have to fight over a space. It also has free internet. A major plus, in my mind that is.

My only negative thoughts I have about SVCC involves the variety. There are only a few classes and clubs to choose from. When I first looked at the list, I was very disappointed SVCC didn't have a chess club or something else that attracted me. I ended up in the Environmental club, which is fine. I just wish there was more so I can increase my pallet.
