This college is great! The freindly, close atmosphere is truly what makes it unique! All the professors offer all they can to help make you a better student. They truly try hard to make you feel special and as if you are not just another number. Springfield college is a closeknit community...something one can not say about all colleges.
Review Your College
I transferred into Springfield College for this spring semester and so far, it has been a very positive experience. The food and dining services are above average compared to other schools, the gym and workout facility is well maintained, the teachers are effective and accommodating educators, and the classes are directly related to each major offered. The Humanics philosophy states that the spirit, mind, and body need to be healthy and in balance with each other in order to be successful. By following this philosophy and changing my lifestyle, I have never felt healthier than I do right now. The dorm selection is good, although some of the rooms need to be renovated. The library is under construction, however the blue prints lay out a beautiful plan. Overall, it has been a very positive experience for me and I can't wait to continue this journey of being at a 4 year school.
Springfield is an excellent college with a tightly-knit community atmosphere. Class building are not too spread out from each other or from on-campus housing, which is nice during rough weather. There is a relatively small population in which most of us know each other, and during a walk across campus, often you will be greeted by name at least twice before you even make it to your lecture hall. Springfield College is well-known for its athletics, but there is a wide variety of other majors which have excellent programs. Each of the health science programs are especially good, such as the PA program, which has had a 100% pass rate for nearly a decade (currently 8 years). The campus is located in the center of the city of Springfield, but the college campus itself is suburban. If you like the fast-paced, busy atmosphere of the city, don't come here. If you like community, you can't get much better than SC Pride.
